What are your feelings about eating meat?
This Christmas you’ll be tucking into some warm, succulent turkey I imagine! Although, nothing wrong with cooking any large bird, or having any alternative meats!
I’ve been venturing to different areas, some more decorated and in the spirit than others. I have my list of go to places for a meal or drink – those which are nice, have a Christmas theme going and are generally happy in nature. Unfortunately, where I live there isn’t many decorations around the town. Only a little. But I can always travel which is what I have been doing!
If you are looking for gifts to buy people, I’m sure you will have plenty of options. I found this site to give me some ideas – https://www.notonthehighstreet.com/christmas
Then there is the Etsy website. It’s full of great gifts and for reasonable prices. https://www.etsy.com/uk/market/christmas_gifts?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=christmas%20gifts_e&utm_campaign=Search_UK_Nonbrand_BNG_ENG_Holiday_Christmas-Gifting_New_holiday22_&utm_ag=Christmas%2BGifts&utm_custom1=k_7a3af9be58f812a1eaf29a32ea5772d7_k&utm_content=bing_420477294_1309518711678861_81844994200993_kwd-81845108055951:aud-808167869:loc-188_c_&utm_custom2=420477294&msclkid=7a3af9be58f812a1eaf29a32ea5772d7
The time of year to relax, have fun and get into the spirit. Maybe you should try out a Christmas market. I’ve been trying to find one that stands out. As I said I have my preferences for locations to visit, but they never have a massive market. Some places have mostly food stalls. My recent trip to the Intu Trafford Center revealed a small festive fairground with ice skating which I did not know about! I will be going back at some point.
I also hope to be able to do some skiiing over this winter. I doubt it will be on a real mountain, but I nonetheless want to. That’s a great day out if you are struggling with things to do with the family. I’m hoping to spark some creativity in you by sharing this post. A lot of people are alone and struggle at Christmas. Why not go out and do it yourself? What I mean is that if you are struggling for ideas on what to do you should just do it yourself because you will probably have a good day.
There are loads of Christmas pantomimes on this time of year and a load of Christmas themed shows. Not to mention the markets in the cities, although primarily food based are still a good way to socialise if you are lonely.
Don’t feel pressured into being happy and cheery though. You aren’t doing anything wrong by simply not having a good time. People struggle, it’s human nature.
