Christmas traditions across the globe

Fancy hiding a pickle in your Christmas tree? Or maybe roller skating to church for some festive cheer? I love Christmas, I’m that annoying person humming Jingle Bells in November and being incredibly ‘festive’ at every available chance.

I think we do Christmas pretty well in the UK but there are some stonkingly good traditions that happen all around the world at this time of year. So if you’d like to learn how to say Merry Christmas in another language, or just want to see what happens across the globe, take a look at the infographic below created by Bright Horizon’s Nursery Highbury- maybe there’s something you can add to your Christmas fun.


saving money on family fun with Groupon.

There’s nothing better than spending time with your family. Days out build memories which last long after the adventures end, but the truth is days out for families are often hugely expensive.

That’s why I love Groupon because it has some amazing deals to make family life just that little bit easier. We’ve visited stately homes, we’ve been to theme parks, bowling and we’ve been looking at some great mini breaks to give us all more time together.


Groupon offers have made possible some things we would never have afforded, or would have had to wait and save for a long time for. I know spending money is not the most important thing and as a family we spend hours walking, talking, playing games and other cheap and cheerful activities. But to be able to do something a bit special with some great money saving offers is the cherry on the cake.

it also means we’ve been able to enjoy some lovely meals out as a family. I think it’s really important children get used to eating out in restaurants and learn how to behave in social situations.  But again eating out is expensive and through Groupon we’ve saved loads.


Groupon has something for everyone and I love that with a click of a button we can find so much, even things like car servicing – I’ve had some great manicures too!

It saves us money as a family, is really easy to use and totally free. What’s not to like! I’m looking forward to lots more family fun through Groupon and maybe the odd mummy pamper day too.
