Why I Don't Want To Wind Down For Xmas | Lifestyle

If you’ve got a couple of weeks off work or Uni right now, you may quickly find yourself at a loose end. Perhaps the worst part of being away from everything for so long is being away from your mates. I love to organise parties and events because I am such a social bug. I’m not too fond of long periods of time away from friends and family. Instead, I’ll put together some plans for meeting up and going out to keep us all together.

One of my favourite places to meet up is in a bar. And no, it’s not all about the alcohol! It’s about the vibe and the atmosphere. We usually pick a central location, so nobody has to travel any further than anyone else. There’s space to spread out if more people come along, or we can pick a quiet corner for a bit of a chat. Best of all, it’s somebody else’s mess to clean up if we all order food and lots of drinks!

Those of us that are really into fashion often check out the various fairs and shows around the area. There aren’t many that crop up at this time of year, but the Christmas fairs and markets often have a few interesting clothing stalls. And there is nearly always a Vintage event on shortly after Xmas for us all to attend. I’m quite lucky that I have a lot of like-minded friends when it comes to fashion. We can always find an excuse to meet up.

Of course, it’s not all about fashion. There are times when we’re all craving a bit of excitement. One of my friends had an Experience gift this time last year. She invited us all to tag along and watch her drive a supercar. Since then, we’ve all been on the lookout for the next big experience. I think I may have found a great day out that fits the bill. I hope they’re all up for it!

There are still plenty of big parties to attend before everyone is back at work or Uni. New Year has to be the biggest event of the year for me. I love the idea of heading down to London and hearing Big Ben ring in the count of midnight. The fireworks and illuminations are said to be epic. It’s a bit of a journey though at that time of year. Accommodation can be tricky to get too. But I’m definitely looking forward to a big crowd of us going if we can.

This time of year is just too exciting to slow down and do nothing. I like to be busy anyway. Most of all, I love being in the company of my friends and family. There’s nothing quite as good at Christmas as everyone coming together to enjoy the festivities. Part of the fun of it all includes the Boxing Day sales as well. Grabbing a bargain outfit is definitely on my list of things to do this year! Have a wonderful time off work, and make the most of a good break.
