All I want for Christmas is.......
Are you already in Christmas mood? Wherever you go everything is about Christmas at the moment which I do love so much... the festive season is the best time of the year - all the decorations, christmas songs and the smells of cinnamon, mulled wine and the pine tree put my heart to a warm place and forget about the cold, wintry weather outside. If you are not in a Christmas mood yet please give us an opportunity to help you to get this special feeling. Just follow these easy steps:
- Turn on some Christmas music.
Great songs such as "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby, "O Holy Night" by Josh Groban and "Believe" by Josh Groban are great examples, and they will help you lift your spirit.
- Make some Christmas cookies.
Make sugar cookies and decorate it your own way with frosting and sprinkles to bring out the Christmas fun.
Hang up Christmas ornaments.
When you focus on the ornaments and just on getting it done, it's not fun - but when you have fun, dance with the Christmas music, put a garland up, little trinkets of Santa Claus and angels. That is a great fun but do with your family
- Put up your Christmas tree.
It doesn't matter if you put it up after you read this blog or in a few days, just get it up. That way, you can decorate the tree and have fun with it, expressing your creativity and feeling like your really into the spirit.
If you are still not in the mood yet and have a better idea for you.
Come to Edinburgh and get yourself fully packed with the offers of the festive season!

Music, dance and precision display with the Massed Pipes and Drums, the Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, cultural troupes, singers and the poignant refrain of the Lone Piper against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

(22 November - 5th of January)
Edinburgh's Christmas lights were switched on last night by cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy, with an estimated audience of 26,000 joining in the countdown!
Hundreds of entertainers from schools and community groups put on shows at 12 stages set along the length of George Street. The dazzling displays included performances of everything from LED hula-hooping to African drumming.
What a fantastic experience! Enjoy the festive season with us in Edinburgh until the 5th of January 2014. What is on the palette this week?
