I know what you’re thinking. I know what you’re gonna say. “Jazz. It’s JULY.” I know that, I’m not that much of an idiot, but hear me out. I’ve seen a lot of people doing “Christmas in July” and today when my neighbour came around for a cuppa, we were talking about Disney Christmas ornaments and it all snowballed down there (pun not intended but fully appreciated). I’m currently not very well, either, so I’ve decided to cheer myself up by having a festive planning day. I’ve already got lots of blogmas post ideas ready and then I thought about the fact that lots of people love a holiday or weekend break around Christmas but you can’t really put it in a blogmas post because it’s a tad late. So, I’ve decided to see what offers are on for Christmas 2017 and inspire you for a little holiday this festive season.
First and foremost on my list is of course Disneyland Paris. I’ve been twice in the festive period and it’s honestly the most magical experience. Some of this year’s festivities are the Christmas parade, the show stopping Disney Dreams of Christmas show, Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights, the chance to meet Santa along with the Disney royalty offering Christmas Wishes as well as Elsa and Anna’s Frozen Sing-along. It’s the most magical place on Earth for the most magical time of year.
The Christmas period this year begins 11th November and there are so many offers and deals. Edwards Coaches have offers of 9 different departure dates with prices from £249 for 3 days, 4 nights staying in the Hotel Cheyenne. If flying is more your thing, Magic Breaks have trips going at around £616.28 based on a London Airport (all airports are around a similar price) with accommodation and park tickets. Another option to try and find a trip to suit you would be to do a DIY package. I’ve done this using Expedia and have found great deals and sales, which is worth checking out.
German Christmas Markets
A fantastic trip to consider this festive season is visiting the German Christmas Markets. The world famous Christmas markets are a must see at one point in your life and are definitely on my list to visit someday. The markets begin at the end of November and would be a perfect weekend away to experience European culture and get some shopping done for the big day. From the food and drink to the overall cosy atmosphere, this would be the perfect weekend away this Winter.
Lastminute.com has deals on at around £292 per person based three nights which includes the hotel and flights from London to Berlin, with prices for other cities and airports being fairly similar. Leger are also offering four day trips from £239pp.
