One of the many pros of caravan ownership is the ability to get away whenever you like, summer and winter. And what better time to take a break than Christmas? If you’re bored with the same old Christmas songs and tatty tinsel or you just fancy doing things a little differently this year, here are our top 5 reasons for spending Christmas abroad.
Make new traditions
Whether you feel stuck in a rut or you’re an adventurous type who likes to try new things, a Christmas abroad is a great way to experience different cultures and new traditions. Whether you fancy a big blowout with oysters and champagne on Christmas Eve like the French, or a Yule log that delivers presents in Spain, there are plenty of things to enjoy and incorporate in your own Christmas traditions.
Cosy up at Christmas
…Or a barbie on the beach. Cosying up in holiday homes and enjoying family time is a great way to get quality family time, while sun worshippers can head for Spain and enjoy grabbing a tan with the turkey! If you’re heading for a colder climate, why not add a fireplace to your holiday homes for cosiness and sheer class?
Let someone else do the cooking
Have you ever dreamed of spending a Christmas where you didn’t have to cook? Christmas Dinner is one of the most stressful parts of the big day, trying to get everything on the table at the same time while catering for your teenagers, vegetarians/vegans and that fussy aunt who will only eat fish. Why not relax and head off to pastures new?
Instead of slaving over a hot stove, you can be waited on hand and foot as you experience course after course of different cuisines. Your fussy aunt would love a plateau de fruit de mer in France and the vegetarians and vegans will love the options available in Italy.
It’s a bargain
Nobody wants to be a Scrooge, but how much do you spend on your average Christmas? If that figure makes you wince, think about spending Christmas in your static caravan. There’s a limit to the number of people you can accommodate and with a cosy fire, fluffy rugs underfoot and throws to snuggle into, it can be the perfect place to enjoy a low key celebration. You can focus on what’s important when your closest family and friends gather together with long walks, silly games and token presents. It’s a chance to experience the true meaning of Christmas.
It’s a good excuse for a getaway
If Christmas really isn’t for you, then why not join the 42% of Brits who prefer just to getaway over the Christmas period. If all the Bank Holidays fall on the right days, you can enjoy a healthy 10 day break away from the endless adverts, Christmas songs and other holiday madness and find some true peace and calm.
Static caravans and mobile homes make the perfect Christmas getaway! There’s nothing like it to recharge your batteries and spend quality time with friends and family, so why not escape for Christmas this year and start making some new traditions your whole family will love?
