However, booking of flights needs to be done well in advance so as those elusive cheap tickets do not slip out of grasp. However, quite a few airlines also offer some special Christmas deals. Here are some of the most popular Christmas destinations as revealed by online searches and other sources.

    Paris

    Paris, synonymous with fashion and glamour stays one of the hottest Christmas holiday destinations in the world ushers in the festival in its signature trendy style.

Every casino comes with terrific Christmas holiday ideas to make it an unforgettable night in Sin City. The Fremont Street Experience, Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden, Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, and those glitzy shopping malls are the hottest places of Las Vegas on Christmas Eve.

    Next time you are thinking about setting off on your travels, why not choose to stay in a holiday cottage? In fact, this is what Snowdonia in North Wales specialises in. There are very many benefits that can be enjoyed by staying in a beautiful holiday cottage in Snowdonia as opposed to staying in a hotel room. Lets look at some of the benefits of choosing holiday cottages over hotel rooms

    1)The freedom in holiday cottages is simply amazing
    Staying in a holiday cottage as opposed to staying in a hotel is more satisfying and more relaxing than any stay in any hotel. This is because by staying in a holiday cottage, you are able to control your own schedule and do whatever you want whenever you want! It is not a breach of hotel regulations and it does not cause any harm to the facilities. You can have meals according to your schedule and are not limited to somebody elses timeframe.

    It is very easy to make your holiday cottage feel exactly like home. This is very hard to do with a hotel room that is invaded every now and then by room service and cleaning staff. Hotels have an air of unfamiliarity and coldness that is hard to disguise no matter the effort made by the staff and management. Holiday cottages feel warm and homely and nothing can deter you from feeling that the moment you step into one of them.

    With a holiday cottage in Snowdonia, you have the freedom to relax and take in the gorgeous North Walian scenery whilst enjoying the company of your friends and family, rather than having to endure being crammed into a hotel making pleasantries with other unfamiliar guests.

    2)Holiday cottages are very economical
    We are currently living in very harsh and chilling financial weather. This means everyone is having to watch the amount of money that leaves his or her pockets. Renting holiday cottages is much more economical compared to hotels as, firstly, most of them are generally self-catering, which means that you will cook and eat your own food. In the long run, you will end up spending less money than if you had checked into a hotel. Secondly, you are likely to rent the cottage with a number of friends and family which means that the cost will be split between a number of you.

    The main benefit of being away from home is the wonderful fact of putting all chores on hold for the duration; a significant plus to anyone who has laboured mightily on Christmas Day, barely snatching ten minutes to listen to the Queens Speech before collapsing in an exhausted heap and going to bed before the children!

    Amongst the drawbacks are that spending Christmas away from home can induce homesickness and the general unfamiliarity with foods and traditions can be a problem; even something as simple as knowing where the milk and sugar are for that necessary cup of tea! Sun-worshippers may like the idea of lying on a beach somewhere, sipping a tropical cocktail while snow and robins are the furthest thing from their minds; however many people prefer to stay in the United Kingdom for Christmas, if for no other reason than to have authentic Christmas weather, maybe even a snow flurry or two to create picturesque tableaux. Another drawback could be that family pets will need to be catered for, either at a boarding facility or having someone pet-sit for them.

    Norfolk lends itself admirably to being the location for a holiday away from home; particularly one of the holiday lodges available in the area. Norfolk is absolutely beautiful; miles of flat countryside which should be dull but are not due to the wonderful diversity of plant, animal and birdlife to be found in the area. Rolling heaths interspersed with the occasional evergreen, windmill or church spire are plentifully watered by the many rivers and waterways that provide a vital ecosystem for the birds that flock here from all over the world. Coastal paths and the seaside do not have to be the property of summertime only; wintry walks will reveal a precious private shore life not hinted at in tourist-busy summer.

    Many of the lodges come with a housekeeping service meaning that the family can go out for a lovely morning walk to explore the area or stock up on snacks and treats and come back to find everything beautifully clean and tidy. The lodge will provide sufficient privacy for everyone to relax and feel properly at home, in a way not always possible in a hotel or even at a relatives house. Imagine snuggling down in front of a genuine wood-fire on Christmas Eve, the flames sparkling off the tinsel and baubles, beautifully cosy while the frosty wind whistles outside what better setting for the best family Christmas ever? Some lodges may even have a provision for pets to accompany their owners; how wonderful to have the whole family all together for one of the best days of the year.

    Norfolk holiday lodges at Christmas can provide a wonderful setting for a memorable holiday, a time of laughter, relaxation, family fun and giving magic!

    Compare for a moment a beach holiday with a ski holiday. The first is all about lying under the sun and doing practically nothing, whereas the latter is taking advantage of as much light as possible by skiing, walking and snowboarding and other activities that require a lot of energy. Besides, a cold environment makes the body burn more calories.

    This of course does not mean that we are allowed to forget our good weight loss habits. On the contrary, it is important to be even more careful, because when we get carried away it is easy to forget how to eat properly.

    If you are about to leave for your ski resort, for the whole week or just for the weekend, it is important to know how to eat. In this article I will point out a few tips to follow during your winter holiday.

    First of all: forget about drinking alcohol to protect yourself from the cold, it is just a myth and a dangerous one indeed. If you feel warmer after your shot of whiskey or grappa, it is probably because of the bar you are sitting in. Since alcohol is a vasoconstrictor, the effect will be exactly the opposite: you will feel cold.

    Do not forget the proteins: in a cold environment our body instinctively craves for carbohydrates, forgetting about proteins, which are essential to keep a good muscular integrity.

    If you do not want to waste time in the restaurant at lunch, have several small meals during the day, rather than a proper lunch; bring some energy bars with you.

    Speaking of bars, be careful with chocolate. It is true that it gives a lot of energy (about 550 Kcal for 100g), but unless you are planning an Arctic crossing, walking 12 hours per day, lower calories bars, with yogurt or muesli are a better choice.

    If you have to sit down and have a proper lunch, stay away from fat foods. It is not hard to find them in a mountain resort, but the myth around them is that they will give you more energy, and make you warmer, but in fact they will just slow down your digestion and make your skiing in the afternoon harder. And of course leave alcohol for after dinner.

    Even if your lunch was light, always wait one hour before going back to the ski run.

    At dinner, if you had carbohydrates for lunch, balance them with proteins.

    Now go have fun!
