CHRISTMAS IN ST JOHNS WOOD

 
     
Christmas is coming! St Johns Wood at Christmas is always special - and there are only 275 days til it's here again!

Although snow is really pretty unlikely, it's always nice to imagine sitting by an open fire, singing christmas carols and looking out of the window to see the snowflakes falling on Christmas Eve.

Children absolutely love Christmas - and Santa Claus is obviously a huge part of that. Imagining Father Christmas on his sleigh, pulled by Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolf... delivering presents to all the world's children in one night.

And of course there's the shopping - some people love it, some hate it, but whether you are buying your xmas gifts in St Johns Wood or further away, we guarantee that you'll almost run out of time.

Looking for some gift ideas? We recommend visiting our friends at Getting Personal for unique personalised Christmas presents.

 

 




Christmas quote of the day:
...Father Christmas comes to our house every year. But for some reason the presents get smaller.

    PREPARING FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS LUNCH IN ST JOHNS WOOD
     
 

  In all the preparation for Christmas, there are undoubtedly a few things you might overlook, so here are some top tips to help make your day a great success:

1) Make sure the turkey (or whatever you're cooking) will actually fit in the oven before Christmas Day. You don't want to be dealing with that at 7 o'clock in the morning.

2) Charge the battery in the camera.  The last thing you need is to take the first photo and see the battery light appear.  You should also check that you have enough space on the memory card, or enough film.

3) Buy snacks. It's not unusual for christmas lunch to take longer than planned, so make sure your guests have a few nibbles.

CHRISTMAS TREES   SECRET SANTA

If want to buy a Christmas tree in St Johns Wood we suggest you start early, when the selection is at its best. A well-cared for tree can last for six weeks, so December 1st is a good day to aim for. Make sure you choose one that has been recently cut and has bright looking needles, as this will extend its life in your living room.

Before you bring your tree inside, first of all keep it outside for a day, standing in water, and when you do bring it in, cut a slice off the base to allow it's pores to open up. It will drink a surprising amount of water, so make sure you keep it topped up every day. Oh - and keep it away from direct heat!

 
Secret Santa can be run in many ways. For example you put all the 'players' names in a hat, and people buy a gift for the person whose name they pick. Some rules allow the person to add a short list of ideas so that they get something suitable. This is more common in large office groups where people are less familiar with one another.

Usually there is a price limit for the gift, and often the gift is given anonymously - although sometimes the gift-giver will give the recipient the present themselves, clearly showing their identity!

THINGS TO DO AT CHRISTMAS    
     
Of course everyone knows the obvious things at Christmas - buying presents for your loved ones (it's so hard to buy for your dad, isn't it?), picking up the christmas tree and decorating it (and then picking up the pine needles for a month), and of course sharing December 25th with your loved ones. But there are other things that you can consider to put a little twist into your festive season.

1) Give to a local St Johns Wood charity. And we don't just mean money, think about giving your time. There are many people who could do with a little extra help at this time of year

2) Get a second job to pay for all those extra presents. Many companies take on additional workers at this time of year - the Royal Mail often offer 18,000 extra jobs, both delivering and sorting

3) Don't eat turkey. Try something else, such as pheasant, roast beef, duck or lamb. The truth is that we all eat turkey constantly throughout December and actually it can be a pretty dry eating experience with lots of cooking stress!

Whoever you hire, we recommend you take up a couple of references for local entertainers in St Johns Wood.

   

We love singing at Christmas - whether it's classic songs or christmas carols - some of our favourites include Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer, Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, Santa Baby - Madonna, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town .

There are many reasons why Christmas is the best time of year, but our personal favourites are the presents, the food and the fun of putting up your own christmas tree and decorations. Many people choose a theme for their Christmas decorations each year, something we've adopted from America. For example, a theme might be something fun like sweets, or something more naturalistic such as wildlife.
