There is no place like England when it comes to Christmas celebrations! The preparations start practically months in advance and build up towards the end of December, leaving you crazy with anticipation! I always go home, to Holland, for the holidays, but there are a few things I need to tick off my list before I go. So, without further ado, I present to you my list of things to do before Christmas in the UK!
1. Go ice-skating somewhere magical. England seems to build ice rinks in the most romantic places, with stunning backdrops! My favourite is the ice rink outside the National History Museum (above), but the Tiffany's rink outside Somerset house is also great.
3. Buy some make-up gift-sets (no other countries does such good ones) or go crazy and buy loads of holiday make-up at Boots, and get a free gift-set! (Left: Nails Inc giftset, right L'Oreal Christmas make-up)
4. Get yourself some Pizza Express Snowball Dough Balls! Pizza Express has a special Christmas version of their amazing dough balls, with a cinnamon and vanilla dip!
5. Wander around any city and take in the Christmas windows, Christmas lights, Christmas markets, the absolute insanity of Christmas shopping (I could hardly move in Debenhams today) and score some Christmas deals!
