Mistletone, Wine and Deadlines

Your first December at UNI will be a strange one, you will have been used to getting in the Christmas spirit at home with your family throughout the month, however at UNI you won’t be going home until at least halfway through.

And you can’t slack off you will have deadlines, and there will be work due in just after the break too, you might even have an exam or two. Holidays at UNI aren’t a couple of weeks where you can forget you are studying you will be expected to keep up a level of work across the holidays.

It isn’t all work though, and there are loads of things you can do at UNI to make yourself feel just as festive even if you are away from family.

Multiple Christmases
There is no need to just have one Christmas, get all of your flatmates to chip in and cook a Christmas dinner together, it will be a nice way to spend some time with your flatmates before you all flee for the holidays.

Secret Santa
I love a Secret Santa, i legitimately live for them, they are a good and cost effective way to do presents with a big group of people and they are always a lot of fun. If you want to mix it up a little, you could do a White Elephant, which involves gift stealing and swapping and is a great twist on your traditional Secret Santa.

Decorate
Decorating is probably the easiest way to make UNI feel festive, you will be coming to the end of your first term so money won’t be abundant, which is where B&M comes in, they do loads of great decorations for very reasonable prices, you can get a fake Christmas tree for £10 which is a steal

It will be different, but that doesn’t mean it has to be bad, so as you spend your last full month of December at home, you can look forward to an even more exciting one next year.

Until Next Time 🙂
