It’s only a few days until Christmas, but there’s still time to wrap a few last-minute presents and stock up on some good food and drink for the big day.
It’s an extra special time of year, whether you’re getting the whole family together for some holiday parties, or just looking forward to a quiet, cozy Christmas.
Christmas decorations are a sparkling part of the season, and decorating the halls with baubles, tinsel and fairy lights is the best way to get into the festive spirit. Some people put up their Christmas decorations as early as October or November, with these shimmery additions a great way to lift your spirits on a gloomy day.
Others wait a bit longer and hang them in December, and dates this late on Christmas Eve can also be a household tradition. If you are, and you’re looking to buy a new tree this year, we’ve found some great savings. Or you may be extra organized next year and want to pick up early bird discounts for Christmas trees well in advance.
