Going To A Santa's Grotto Is A Must!

There are Santa's Grottos everywhere over Christmas and it is a good idea to buy tickets in advance if you are trying to go to one of your kids' favorites.

And there are sometimes free Grottos in shopping centers where you can also get a photo done with Santa on the spot for a small fee.

At Santa's Grotto you can talk to Santa and ask him for the present you want most. And you can get a photo done with Santa as well to take home with you.

Most department stores will have a special Christmas Grotto with goodie bags to take away, arts and crafts activities and story telling or special messages from Santa.

Also you can find smaller Grottos at local fairs and markets and on weekends in shopping malls.

Going to a Santa's Grotto is an important part of the Christmas activities if you are a kid or have kids yourself.

Going To A Christmas Evening Party Or Event?

A Night Out On The Town Over Christmas Is A Must!

You'll probably even definitely be going out for a Christmas lunch, party or drinks or be invited to a party at a friend's house, or out to dinner, a bar, or a hotel or other venue.

Going out for a Christmas meal, or buffet, is probably one of the most done things over Christmas.

Having a traditional meal, going to a buffet restaurant with entertainment, going to a bar with drinks and canapes is top on the list of things to do over the Holiday Season.

And you will find there are a lot of events and venues holding open Christmas parties and balls which you can buy tickets for.

You can make a table and invite your own guests or just go with friends and join a table.

And there are drinks venues which serve Christmas snacks along with cocktails and then DJ's afterwards.

Dressing Up For Christmas Events + Parties

If you're going to a Christmas market or theme park you might want to dress up in fancy dress. Go as an elf, or dress in a Santa Suit.

Or just wear a festive hat and coat in red to fit into the holiday season.

And if you are going to a family party for Christmas see if the other guests are going in fancy dress and then decide what to wear.

Your kids could wear a Disney costume to fit for the evening, like one of the Disney Princesses or as a Pirate or other popular character.

      Christmas is one of the most stressful events, even if you could say that it's worth it because it's fun (yes it's really fun). It's good to plan ahead to somehow cut back the stress. Thanks for your suggestions. :)
