Christmas lights at Selfridges in London

Christmas is one of the most anticipated day of the year for some, and that’s why planning ahead and getting organised will help you and your families alleviate the excitement during the build up and on the day. I very rarely get worked up during Christmas because I’ve found out that there are ways to get ahead of the Christmas rush.

Is Christmas really a time to celebrate?

The festive season isn’t all about shopping, buying gifts, partying and hangovers! It’s about enjoying the festivities and keeping the real meaning alive, which is the celebration of Christ.

During your travels why not take a sight seeing-trip or make time for window-shopping? Visit a carol concert. I was at the Hillsong concert last Sunday, which started off my celebration. Browsing of endless decorations in the shop windows or the Christmas market at Winter Wonderland, Southbank or one local to you will certainly get you in the festive mood.

A few goals worth keeping this season:

Look out for the elderly living alone, the deprived and homeless.

Clear clutter and give unwanted items to a nearby charity.

Volunteer at charities and serve meals to the deprived at Crisis or a local church. It’s quite fulfilling!

Merry Christmas
