We know that Christmas is still on its way and that many of you are still in the midst of hanging your decorations, preparing your food shop and buying last-minute gifts. But once the festivities are over, the New Year celebrations begin in next to no time, so if you don't want to be left with nothing to do, it's best to start planning.
If you normally bring in the New Year surrounded by your family and friends in a bar or restaurant in your hometown, why not break tradition by going abroad for a few days?
The Christmas period is one that's filled with laughter, feel-good music and all-round festive cheer. With this weekend marking the last one before the big day, it's likely that the last-minute shoppers will be rushing around to snap up the rest of their gifts. But instead of getting caught in the Christmas rush, why not break the annual tradition by spending the festive season in a wonderful ski resort?
With Christmas day drawing near, it's likely that your December schedule will be packed full of parties, dancing and plenty of food. But with the festivities in full swing, a month of drinking and eating sugary treats can take its toll on your body and you may begin to feel lethargic. That's why it's important to keep fit and active.
If you're considering taking a break and booking a holiday before the year's out or in the New Year, why not take a trip to a ski resort?
It's the last month on the calendar, so what better way to round off a good year by going on holiday? When the temperatures start to drop, some people choose to escape to a sunny destination where they can lounge on the beach and soak up the sun. But although the weather in the UK is pretty dismal in winter, others still see it as their favourite season, in which case they prefer to visit somewhere that's still chilly - just a lot more fun.
With December in full swing, there's no doubt you're confronted daily by all things Christmas-related, be it the festive markets in your home town or city, your children opening their advent calendars, or the office Secret Santa presents.
But as much as you enjoy the Christmas period, you may be looking forward to what 2015 has in store just that bit more. When the temperatures start to drop in winter, many families and groups of friends dream of escaping from the blustery UK and visiting somewhere far away.
