Christmas is on the horizon and our thoughts go to all things magical: the tree, the food, the presents, the partying and the children’s excited faces. Yet according to many, it can be an incredibly stressful time of year. Instead of slaving over a hot oven and having to play charades once again, imagine spending your Christmas holidays in the sun, lying on golden sand, cocktail in hand. Just for once, why not leave the frantic shopping and washing up behind and let someone else cook the Christmas lunch?
With year round sun, the Canary Islands are always a popular choice for Christmas Holidays, as you can be sure of the weather. Whether you are a couple looking for something romantic, or a family looking for fun, ‘All Inclusive Holidays ’ has Christmas Holidays to suit your needs. Check out their web site at http://allinclusiveholiday.co.uk/all_inclusive_holidays/christmas_holidays/ for deals to Tenerife, Gran Canaria or Lanzarote. The Spanish celebrate Christmas Eve in style, eating their Christmas meal at midnight on the 24th and partying into the early hours. The Canaries are their favourite destination and the better places usually manage to banish ‘tacky’, so dress to impress and enjoy a sense of occasion.
Be prepared to push out the boat (and open your wallet) for Christmas week, with the same holiday costing up to €350 more than in November. Or play around with departure dates. Flights leaving up to the 15th December are considerably cheaper and it’s possible to return quite cheaply between Christmas and New Year.
