The preparations are over; the gifts have been distributed, the turkey has been collected and the family are on their way. There’s nothing left to say other than Happy Christmas! We hope your Christmas is filled with fun, family time and relaxation. The lead up to Christmas can be extremely busy and often quite stressful, so take the time to pour yourself some bubbly and say cheers to having survived it!
December is a whirlwind. From office Christmas parties to shopping and nativity plays, our days, evenings and weekends are filled with festive plans and preparation. As the week before Christmas approaches, stress levels begin to rise (as does our mulled wine intake, probably). By this stage, you’ve decked the halls, found the perfect gifts and ordered the turkey. But anyone planning Christmas knows that this is just the beginning. When your home is chosen for the family’s Christmas festivities, the pressure is on to deliver a Nigella-standard Christmas feast. With so much to think about, it’s easy to forget something, which is why we’ve put together a handy Christmas to do list for the lead up to the main event. Some of these things may seem small, but they could make or break the perfect Christmas!
