Make Holiday Home Christmas Traditions

15 Nov 2022

At Maguires Country Parks, it’s all about making holiday home traditions, especially at Christmas time. After all, there’s nothing better than spending the festive season at your home away from home making memories with the ones you love.

If you’re spending Christmas time at your holiday home in Northumberland or North Yorkshire, making festive traditions is one of the most exciting things you can do to get into the spirit.

So, it’s time to get out all the twinkly lights, decorations and delicious festive snacks because we’re making traditions at Maguires Country Parks!

Host a movie marathon

When the month of December rolls around its basically Christmas, no matter what anyone says. Have everyone in your family choose a festive movie to suit their personality and set an evening aside to have a movie marathon.

Gather some seasonal snacks to accompany you; enjoy Stollen, Lebkuchen, pretzels, and of course chocolate!

Sing Christmas carols in your holiday home

Christmas songs are one of the best parts of the holiday season, so of course it’s always good fun to play them over and over again.

So, why not host a Christmas sing along? Print out some lyrics, fire up a playlist and get your vocal chords ready to belt out the favourites. You could also prepare some delicious mulled wine to enjoy on the side.

Alternatively, if you can’t have all your relatives with you this festive fun can easily be hosted over Zoom!

Build a gingerbread house

A favourite tradition for many, building a gingerbread house allows you to express your personality and design skills without taking yourself too seriously. Plus, it’s a great way of working together in the light of the Christmas spirit.

Wear matching festive pyjamas

Matching or coordinated Christmas pyjamas always look great when taking family photos and are fun to look back on in years to come.

Why not start making a tradition now to wear a different pair every year?

Decorate the Christmas tree

An essential part of the Christmas build-up, putting up the tree and decorating it is a fun job that will get the whole family involved.

Choose a festive aesthetic to complement the modern look of your holiday home and the place will be feeling cosy in no time.

Take a holiday home family photo

Taking snapshots for Facebook or Instagram is an almost daily occurrence in this day and age. However, how often is it that we all pause for a proper photo where everyone is spruced up and looking at the camera at the same time?

So, it’s time to go all out when it comes to the annual family photo. Whether it’s matching outfits or Christmas costumes, dress your best and get some festive photo props involved!

We believe that we have the best touring pitches, holiday homes and residential homes in the whole of the UK, so why not pop down and see what we’re talking about?
