It’s December, which means that it is officially the start of Christmas.
People up and down the country have gone into panic mode about the amount of preparation that they need to do before the 25th December arrives. Fear not, here at The Ice Cream Farm, we are on hand to offer you some guidance with our 10 ways to get ready for Christmas.
1. Open your advent calendar daily.
There is something magical about a little taste of chocolate every morning with your breakfast. Open your advent calendar daily for a little Christmassy magic for 24 days in the lead up to the big day.
2. Put your Christmas tree up.
An integral part of Christmas is ensuring that your Christmas tree is up and well dressed. Bring out the tinsel, switch on the lights and add an excessive amount of baubles, because the time for all things sparkly and metallic has arrived!
3. Go to the kid’s nativity play.
Making the children’s nativity play costumes out of household items is a must-do for a successful Christmas. We all remember what it was like when our parents dressed us in a tea-towel and sent us off to the stage to make our debut as a shepherd. It’s only fair that we pass the tradition on to the newest generation.
4. Drink mulled wine.
Serve steaming hot and with orange peels for a truly festive delight. Why not invite the neighbours in to share winter tales over a glass or two? Put the log fire on, and you’ll be the top of everyone’s Christmas card list!
5. Eat Cheshire Farm Ice Cream’s Christmas flavours – Sugar Damson, Christmas Pudding and Prosecco.
Number five goes without saying, as no Christmas is complete without a scoop of Cheshire Farm’s famous Christmas ice-cream flavours. Opt for the Prosecco flavour, to add a touch of class to proceedings, whilst our traditional Christmas Pudding will finish off the dessert perfectly. Our Sugar Damson has been a year-old favourite, and will never fail to disappoint. Made with the same recipe as our award winning all year round flavours, our Christmas choices are ones not to be missed!
6. Wrap your presents early.
Get the boring wrapping done and dusted early. That way, come Christmas Eve, you can sit down with a steaming hot glass of mulled wine, in front of the log fire, and watch a Christmas film. Alternatively, you can see in Christmas in style, without being worried about wrapping presents at 1am after a Christmas Eve night out.
7. Wear a garish Christmas jumper.
The more garish, the better. Jumpers that have Christmas lights, pom poms, 3D scarves and heinous patterns are all acceptable come the 1st December. A highlight of the season is the annual National Christmas Jumper Day which will take place on 11th December.
8. Visit Cheshire Farm Ice Cream at Chester Christmas Market.
We are down at Chester Christmas Market until the 14th December. Come down and say hello, whilst we serve up a delicious helping of Cheshire Farm Ice Cream. Alternatively, opt for our Frozen Hot Chocolates, Ice Cream Cupcakes or Ice Cream Burgers – all equally scrumptious!
9. Order your turkey.
Get your order in at the butchers early to ensure that you are not disappointed. However many people you must cater for this Christmas, turkey’s come in all sizes and are a Christmas must-have come dinner time. And remember to use the left-overs for those wonderful turkey and cranberry sandwiches!
