Christmas is just two weeks away. We know, crazy right? Between spending your dollar on gifts and re-arranging your home to fit a small army (also known as ‘your family’), you probably forgot to sit down and embrace that festive vibe. Well do not fear, for here are some top ideas on how to regain your Christmas spirit.

Christmas markets.

If you feel your festive vibe dwindling, get yourself down to one of these, stat. Need a tip? Check out the Camden Lock special Christmas market on the 12th/13th/14th of December where there’ll be more food and mulled wine than you can shake a candy cane at. Get more info HERE.


Dodgy Christmas songs.

No Christmas is complete without some dodgy attempts at hitting number one in the charts, and we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to songs cheesier than a slab of cranberry brie. So here’s Neil Diamond wishing you a “very merry, cherry, cherry, holly-holy, rock n’ rolly Christmas”. Nice one Neil…

Holidays are comin’.

Ah yes, the Coca Cola advert we all know and love. You know you can only start the countdown to baby Jesus’ birthday once those red trucks roll across your TV screen. Gets us every time…

Awkward family photos.

Gather round children, it’s time for that traditional Christmas family photo. Of course once puberty hits, you realise these moments will only come back to haunt you, but beyond that awkward ‘90s haircut you might just find that festive vibe you’re looking for.

Need some more awkward family photos in your life? Well get your eyes on a whole load of them HERE.



Is it a universal mind game to assume all men with white beards might be Father Christmas on his day off? Keep the magic alive people…

Christmas Knits…

If you don’t own a dodgy Christmas knit, well, shame on you. Get yourself some festive fluff, pour yourself some eggnog and whack on Nat King Cole. Sorted.


Movie Marathon.

If none of the above has worked, you’re in danger zone. Book a day away from life to lock yourself away atleast 24 hours worth of Christmas films. C’mon, you’re really going to tell us this really doesn’t make you feel Christmassy…
