Christmas lights are officially being switched on throughout the country with major cities like London leading the way. What other events do we have to look forward to this holiday season?…
Christmas markets have sprung up everywhere over the last few years and we must say… we love them! In Kent, almost every town has these magical little wooden huts, they really are a fantastic addition to the Christmas season. These festive stalls sell local handcraft gifts, knitwear, a variety of food and generally everything Christmassy with German tradition. Visits to see Santa Claus have also begun, however many theme parks/events have been fully booked since September so the best option may be a grotto at the shopping malls.
The media was the first to launch into the Christmas season with Christmas ads on TV as soon as Halloween ended. Christmas movies are also being shown and now the radio stations are playing Christmas set lists. Who cares if it’s still only November?!! Bring on the carollers we say!!
Christmas food, it’s what we dream of all season…. mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, mulled wine…. and so much more. Then there’s Christmas Day and the massive feast followed by a day of continuous eating…and another day…. and another day…. We just can’t wait!
