30 Apr Join In With The Christmas Spirit by Attending Christmas Events
The days leading up to Christmas can be for most tiring and unexciting as they prepare for Christmas day celebrations. Yet, there is no need to feel bogged down by Christmas shopping, food preparation and pre-Christmas dieting, when you can enjoy the various events that go on around the Christmas period. So get involved in the Christmas festivities and avoid being the Scrooge of the family, the office or the Christmas party.
We’re very lucky these days to have so many events to attend at the Christmas period, from the Christmas party to the local market. There are various events, which are suitable for the whole family, enabling you to spend quality time together whilst fitting in some Christmas shopping. In Birmingham, the amazing Frankfurt market enables you to browse through the specialist foods and crafts, whilst enjoying some Gluhwein and lebkuchen. The German market as well as other local markets and craft fares are a great way to buy something unique for your loved ones, as well as support local artists and businesses.
There are plenty of family friendly attractions at Christmas time in the West Midlands, from the annual Christmas parade in the very heart of Birmingham, which will keep the kids and you mesmerized. Day time activities during December will entertain the kids, whilst on holiday or at the weekend. All over the UK, venues will be hosting Christmas activities, shows and grottos, creating that magical feeling of Christmas for kids everywhere. In particular, Dudley Zoo, Cadbury Land and Selfridges are all hosting magical events for Children.
If you want something that not only the kids are interested in, look out for art and craft fairs where you can shop for crafts but also participate in a Christmas crafts class. Winterbourne House hosts yearly classes teaching how to make Christmas decorations and placements for the table, which is useful for those who want to impress their family and friends with their Christmas décor skills. Take the kids and your partner to the cinema to watch a Christmas movie, such as Scrooge, to get you all into the Christmas mood.
If you want some time without the kids, you can attend many adult only events, such as viewing new collections in one of the numerous art galleries in the UK. Also spend some quality time with your chums and work colleagues before the Christmas party, by spending an evening out at one of the German markets all over the UK or having a group meal together at a local trendy restaurant.
