8 Reasons to Spend Christmas Abroad
Christmas is coming and we're all starting to get excited about watching Christmas films, hearing the festive songs, exchanging presents and tucking into Christmas dinner. If you're looking for something a little bit different this year, why not spend Christmas abroad?
1. Swap the cold wintry weather for glorious sunshine
We’re always wishing for a white Christmas but along with that comes the cold weather, icy roads and the post-snow sludge. Instead, why not pack your summer clothes, head somewhere hot to soak up the sun and work on your tan?
2. Avoid the chaotic traffic jams and train delays
Travel in the run-up to Christmas can be a nightmare with everyone trying to get home for the festive period. If you can escape the country early enough you could be chilling on a beach instead of being stuck on the motorway on Christmas Eve.
3. Ever tried a Christmas BBQ?
Neither have we…but the Aussies have proven that you don’t have to miss out on your Christmas dinner just because you’re abroad. Barbecued turkey sounds delicious!
4. Swap Christmas jumpers for bikinis
Christmas jumpers have become increasingly popular over the last few years…the more outrageous the better it seems. If you feel like shaking it up a bit this year – we love the Santa hat on the beach idea.
5. Give your eyes and ears a holiday!
Dreading the thought of hearing Mariah Carey and The Pogues on loop? Fed up of watching another repeat of the Royle Family? There is another option...
6. Swap Christmas office parties for pool parties!
Ok so you might miss out on the office gossip after the Christmas party but pool parties are so much fun!
7. If big family Christmas' just aren’t for you…
Apparently, the average British family will have at least five arguments on Christmas Day. If you’re still having flashbacks of last year’s feuds…spending a quiet Christmas on holiday could be the perfect escape plan.
8. And if Christmas is all about being together with your family...
If you love being with your family at Christmas and like the idea of all going abroad to make the most of the festive period, why not spend it in a private place of your own? You can benefit from having the whole family together and doing Christmas exactly how you want to, where you want to.
