Christmas is a very special and cheerful time of the year, although this year it will be a bit different, you can still celebrate in many ways.
You could host karaoke at home with family, make a gingerbread house, (I personally love making chocolate brownies) watch a movie, play traditional card or board games, try some homemade crafts, Christmas card making or even dance and sing along to a Christmas song!

Enjoyment in Havering Parks
Perhaps you could go for a lovely brisk walk or like me visit Dagnam Park. It's so magical with wild deer roaming free, which are great to see over the Christmas holidays. It's ideal to go for a walk, run, swim or bike ride to burn off all the Christmas chocolate! Why not try going for walk in your local park instead of reaching for another mince pie, your body and mind will certainly thank you for it - everything in moderation right?!
Now most of us are spending more time indoors it's especially important to make the most of the chances when you do get to go outside. Those days between Christmas and New Year are an ideal time to rethink your fitness, ready for the new year, when we might not get a chance to spend as much time with friends and family as usual. I might even try to get my family to join the new Hornchurch Leisure Centre opening early in January. It looks great. I hope they release a timetable soon and have lots of activities for children.
Due to Coronavirus, Christmas might feel strange this year. We can still have an amazing Christmas, while still keeping safe. We can enjoy quizzes, online gatherings with friends & family or even socially distanced walks. I really hope I'm on the good list this year, I can't wait to see what 2021 has in store!
