Happy holidays, folks! Around this time of year, no one is sure what day of the week it is and as such we have decided to write an extended Yuletide Roundup for you all. We’ve got the low-down on what is up this weekend, right through to New Year’s Eve.
Whether you are still searching for the perfect gift, hosting a Friendsmass dinner, or hoping to just have a good non-denominational time on the town we hope you stay warm, stay safe, and have yourselves a merry little weekend!
