The days are still getting shorter and the weather is getting colder, but will there actually be any snow this Christmas? Probably not, but here's some nice seasonal stories to put you in the festive mood.
MERRY VLOGMAS FROM ZOELLA
Lovely YouTuber Zoella, also known as Zoe Sugg, has got in the festive spirit with her annual Christmas Vlog, which she calls her Vlogmas.
She has a fantastic trailer for each day, which shows a cartoon Zoella with her pug dog Santa Nala in a sleigh pulled by her guinea pigs Pippin and Percy.
Tune in to watch her and Alfie opening their many, many advent calendars, getting their Christmas tree, decorating the house and other festive stuff, such as going on an expensive shopping trip to the Harrod's department store in London, playing couple's pictionary and setting off for a holiday in Dubai.
FESTIVE KNITS FOR THE WINTER
This year, the Christmas jumpers have come out in all of their glory. Supermarkets are selling Santa pullovers, reindeer T-shirts and snowmen hoodies, and they all look great. Send us your Christmas jumper photos, we'd love to see them. Nia has just bought a really nice one from Fat Face called the Festive FairIsle Jumper, which has got reindeer, snowflakes, trees, zigzags and even some cute little love hearts. Very nice work Fat Face.
HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH
Have you ever wondered if you can give or receive too many presents at Christmas time? Well, one mother recently shared a picture of the 300+ presents that she has bought for her children this year. While the mother admitted that she got carried away, she didn't expect the huge amount of criticism and online abuse that she received soon after. Personally, we think that less is more, especially when your gifts are super thoughtful.
SHOULD CHRISTMAS DAY BY A PHONE FAST
There's no denying that we're all rather addicted to our smart phones, social media and modern technology, but the Archbishop of York thinks that we should all put our phones away for Christmas Day. He has proposed a 'phone fast', because he is worried that the day is beginning to lose its true meaning. The Archbishop has been met with a very mixed response, with many people saying that they're 'happy to do whatever they like, thank you very much'.
