 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 familyWink

  • 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!

We may be in the midst of Edinburgh’s winter festival but now it is your chance to plan for warmer occasions! This morning tickets went on sale for the 2014 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is the most spectacular shows in the world and one which is truly unique to Edinburgh. Tickets have sold out for the last 15 years so early booking is recommended!
Next summer, from August 1-23, over 220,000 people travel from the four corners of the earth will see a 1,000-strong cast gather for the 65th Tattoo, which will celebrate "Our Home, Friends & Family" and once again be staged on a floodlit Edinburgh Castle Esplanade.

As Scotland prepares to welcome the world as part of the exciting year of Homecoming, hundreds of Commonwealth participants are set to play a part in next year's Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. 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.

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.
