The festive season is upon us, making this my first experience of Lancaster at Christmas time! I’m going to be documenting how I’m spending the Christmas period with my flatmates and hopefully giving you some insight into the activities and events you can take part in at uni throughout December.
Having an advent calendar to kick off the festivities has been a long-standing tradition for me, so I decided to get one for my room to help me feel as festive at uni as I do each year at home.
My flat loves to celebrate every occasion with decorations, and as we’d enjoyed decking out the kitchen for Halloween we were excited to go bigger and better for Christmas. We set out to town to grab tinsel, fairy lights, bunting and even a miniature pine tree to sit on the kitchen table (which we have named Terry and want to keep for the rest of the year if we manage to look after him properly). Along with this, we also bought perhaps a few too many festive treats which were much appreciated during cosy movie nights in watching the classics, such as Nativity, The Holiday and The Grinch.
Lancaster looked lovely all lit up on our shopping trip for decorations.
