Christmas Countdown: 13 Days Till Christmas
It is officially cuffing season which means that we are all getting ready to snuggle up to someone as the temperature gradually drops and it gets darker earlier and earlier in the day. Whether you already have a boyfriend or girlfriend, are looking for one or are just looking for some fun new ideas of activities to do with your friends this Winter, hopefully this post will inspire you.
Why leave the house into the cold weather outside when you can snuggle up with blankets, hot chocolate, microwavable popcorn and the entire Harry Potter series?! Not only does it guarantee you warm snuggles but it also means that you can lounge around in your pyjamas which are 100% more comfy than ‘outdoor’ clothes.
Winter Theme Park
Perfect for thrill seekers, Winter Theme Parks are the alternative to the classic theme parks which are often closed over the Winter months. There is often a range of rides so no matter your preference, there will be something for you. My personal favourite in London is Winter Wonderland.
Winter/Christmas Markets are the perfect way to spend an evening. There is often a wide variety of cuisines available to purchase, a plentiful of supply of hot chocolate and dozens of stalls selling unique gifts for you to purchase for your loved one from candle holders to fairy lights to jewellery.
Have A Drink at an Ice Bar
An Ice Bar is exactly as it is described, a bar made entirely of ice. You normally have to purchase a ticket to the bar beforehand and this ticket includes a cape and gloves to keep you warm inside the bar as well as your first cocktail. Be warned, there is usually a time limit on how long you can spend in the bar so drink quickly!
If you are lucky enough to live near a mountain or in a place where it snows, go sledging, skiing or snowboarding! It is fun and a workout at the same time and can only be done during certain months of the year. However, if you live in England like myself, how about indoor sledging, skiing or snowboarding? There are plenty of centres over England that have fake snow slopes where you can learn to sledge, ski or snowboard or just practice your skills. I actually had some lessons at a centre before I went skiing for the first time and it was a huge help, although it is not quite the same as a real snow slope.
What is the best date you have ever been on?
