    1) Go shopping in town
    2) See the christmas lights
    3) Go to a pub and have a steaming cup of coffee
    4) Go skiing, toboggonning etc at indoor snow places (Snowdome at Tamworth is one, must be others)
    5) As above, have a snowball fight
    6) Go to London and go ice skating at the Natural History Museum/Somerset House...
    7) Make Christmas Cards for everyone
    8) Make presents for people
    9) Wrap up really warm and go for a nice countryside walk on a silvery frosty morning
    10) Decorate your house with fairy lights etc

    If anyone has any other suggestions, post them here!!

    Nice thread Anna!!

    1. Go and see family, say happy christmas, get lots of hugs!

    2. Go and see friends, say happy christmas, get lots of hugs!

    3. Give lots of presents and receive lots of presents!

    4. Try on dresses for NYE and realise you need a size smaller!

    5. Go dancing and come home to a "hot chocolate" in front of the fire!

    6. Watch Christmas Movies with the kids (or in my case with your girlfriends!)

    7. Go and get pampered!

    The list could go on . . .
