2020 may be cancelled, but Christmas shouldn’t be. It remains a season that encourages us to celebrate the end of the year with our loved ones in joyful, intimate evenings. The only difference this year is that the celebrations may have less pizazz than before, but that certainly does not make the seasonal cheer any less meaningful.
Which brings me to to the topic of staycations. For a cosy evening away from the monotony of 2020, a staycation can help to end the year on a quietly contemplative note. At least for a couple of days, you don’t need to think about cleaning up the house for a more pleasant environment to lounge in or what to eat for meals. Furthermore, you’ll also be contributing to the local economy.
What kind of celebrations are you looking at this Christmas? Here are some inspirations and recommended hotels for a seasonal holiday experience.
