There are lots of things in the run up to Christmas that make it a fun and exciting time for all – young and old alike. Here is a countdown to Christmas that will get you feeling really festive by the time the big day rolls around…
Choose your Christmas Tree – Ever since Victorian times, Christmas trees have been a huge part of the festive celebrations. The evergreen tree symbolises the life that still goes on, even during the dark days of winter, and is traditionally decorated with pretty lights and bright baubles to bring happiness and cheer during the festive season. Choosing a tree and decorating it is one of the best parts of the run up to Christmas.
See Santa – Little ones (and plenty of adults!) love to see Santa in the run up to Christmas. It makes the countdown even more exciting and magical. There are lots of ways you can pay a visit to the big man – see him in a grotto, on a train, or this year it is probably best to see him virtually – there are lots of options out there to make sure you don’t miss out!
Festive Shows – One of the most traditional activities in the festive season is seeing a pantomime like this Panto Preston. If you are going to be stuck indoors this Christmas however, there are lots of ways you can still enjoy a Christmas show – lots of theatres are live streaming them, and of course there are loads of Christmas films you can enjoy!
