Welcome to your local ' Countdown to Christmas': It's not long now and the clock is ticking

Rugby Editorial 9th Oct, 2023 Updated: 26th Oct, 2023   0

Here at ‘The Observer’ we love planning for the upcoming festivities as soon as we can to ensure that when the big day arrives it is filled with love, happiness and laughter!

Christmas is about spending time with loved ones so we’ve put together lots of local  ‘Christmassy’ promotions and advertising offers, as well as a Christmas Quiz which will be fun to play around the dinner table and lots, lots more – so keep checking your ‘Countdown to Christmas’ as we will continue updating right up to Christmas Eve.

Make sure you tell your family members some of our truly awful Christmas jokes you’ll find in these digital pages. Also you’ll also find a delicious Christmas pudding recipe, some important information on Christmas trees (did you know you need to keep watering yours?), and we’ve unearthed some wacky Christmas traditions from around the world, and we even managed to get Mrs Claus in to answer some of your Christmas dilemmas.

We’ve also had our eyes peeled for this year’s best presents, events and offers locally AND we have a wealth of businesses and local services featured in these pages to help you get ahead and prepare for your best Christmas ever.

Finally, one of the real joys this season is the opportunity to say thank you to all our readers and advertisers, and wish you the warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year. Wishing you the gifts of the season — Peace, Joy, Hope. Merry Christmas!
