The festive Coca Cola truck has already appeared on our TV screens with the famous “holidays are coming!” declaration. Many radio stations are already getting on the Christmas bandwagon. Starbucks have started their traditional Red Cups for the season. This is all well and good if you are someone who loves to make the most of this time of year and wishes to stretch the month-long celebration as much as possible. However, if you are in the other camp – and are more of a Scrooge – you will probably be looking to escape the cold, British winter.
Fortunately, for those who can’t seem to deal with the wet (and often snowy) weather and all it brings – slow traffic, the possibility of accidents, or being snowed in and not able to get anywhere at all – a flight abroad to sunnier shores is a welcome thought. During the winter there are always lots of great deals offered on top European destinations as well as those further afield.
Leaving the bleary UK behind means that you can get some much needed sun and relax outside, while the rest of the people you know are tucked up at home not daring to brave the conditions, all the while their heating bills go through the roof.
It is certainly understandable why someone would want to get away from things despite the obvious delights of this time of year; a chance to see family and friends, give (and receive) presents and take part in any organised events surrounding Christmas and all it means.
There are many individuals and couples who would merrily trade in their usual turkey and roast dinner complete with Christmas pudding for a deckchair by the beach and an apartment with full air conditioning on the go. Being able to sleep at night with the cool fan on may be preferable to a huge heater turned on full blast.
While some people can’t wait for Christmas and everything to do with it, others would rather just skip it and get on to the spring and summer instead. If this is you, then it may be time to go shopping for your summer gear and suntan cream rather than jumpers and coats to protect you from the cold. Those prepared for the winter-time can simply get themselves an efficient air conditioning and heating unit and ensure they are kept snug and warm this Christmas time. The fact is the choice is yours, so if you have the funds available you get to decide.
