The festive season is just around the corner and you're already starting to panic? That's probably how most people feel. In the weeks before Christmas, we are all constantly worried about the upcoming festivities: When do I start decorating? What will I cook? Which family members will I visit? What should I give as a present? What else needs to be thought of? These and many other questions tend to cause headaches in November and December. However, to help you enjoy the most magical time of the year in a relaxed way and look forward to warm treats and cosy evenings, a checklist is a good idea. Make a note of what needs to be taken into account and work through the individual points one by one. Not sure where to start? Don't worry! We have compiled the most important steps in Christmas planning chronologically for you.
