Christmas

  1. Funny Gifts And Stocking Fillers

    We all like a good laugh at Christmas time; it is what brings the whole family together. From the teasing about eating the sprouts to the cheesy jokes in the Christmas crackers, we laugh in good spirit and that’s what makes it the most wonderful time of year. No matter what friend or family member you’re buying for, there is always room for a bit of tactical humour. Fill their stockings with funny festive tricks and treats to put a smile on everyone’s face. Do you know someone who likes to get on the wrong side of the law or often gets mistaken for some that does? We have the perfect present for them! How about a Joke ASBO that you can issue to them personally? This hilarious novelty item looks official with its seals and stamps; that is until you begin reading. There are different “offenses” to choose from too ranging from having awful taste in music to always being late!sm-27609-penguin-party-poncho-costume stocking If your recipient loves the great outdoors then we have just the thing for them! One of our fantastic waterproof party ponchos will put a smile on anyone’s face. With a huge range of designs to choose from you’re sure to find something to suit that festival goer in your life.

  3. The Big Christmas Countdown

    One Month to go Crimbo Reindeer JumperThe Big Christmas Countdown is now well under way, there is now less than a month to spare before the big day. If you’ve yet to do any preparation at all, then don’t despair: there is still time to take care of everything – but only just. You should now do any online shopping you plan on doing. Christmas is the busiest time of the year, not just for traditional retailers, but for online ones, too. While most of them promise to deliver within a matter of days, you should always plan for the worst. Errors can happen and if you leave it until it’s too late then these errors cannot always be rectified. The last thing you want is no present at all. If you still haven’t got one, now is a good time to buy your Christmas jumper. Wrap your presents Not only does buying presents early safeguard against the doomsday scenario of not having any presents at all, it also affords you with plenty of time in which to wrap them. In order to save more time, you should always try to wrap gifts as they arrive, for two reasons. Firstly and most importantly, it will prevent members of your household from discovering their presents before the big day; and secondly, in order to avoid the annual panic-stricken present-wrapping session on Christmas Eve.

  4. Doing It For The Kids

    Doing It For The Kids
    On the 12th of December the organisation ‘Save the Children’ is holding a “Christmas Jumper Day” to raise funds for their cause. The eventsave the children logo is now in its third year and has so far managed to raise more than £1.6 million, so let’s see how much we can boost it by this year! Who Are 'Save The Children'? Since the early 1900's all the way up to this day Save the Children has been working to help children and families from Britain and all across the world through war and times of famine. With no political agenda and a philosophy to help anyone one in need regardless of their colour, country or belief they have saved millions of lives. In 1919 Eglantyne Jebb and her sister Dorothy Buxton decided that campaigning for children's' rights just wasn't enough and at a public meeting at The Royal Albert Hall the Save The Children fund was created. While Dorothy concentrated on political campaigning, Eglantyne made it her mission to make children's rights and welfare a major issue across the globe. When her 'Declaration of the Rights of the Child' was adopted by the forerunner of the UN, The League of Nation's and managed to inspire the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, everything looked to be very promising.

  5. Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

    Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!
    ChristmasChristmas music is a lot like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it and here at Hollywood, we certainly do love it! Our stores will be blaring festive music all season long, so get on board and make your own Christmas playlists. There are literally thousands of festive tunes to get you through the winter. If Classical is your cup of tea then there are traditional carols galore to relax to by the fire. For something nice and soothing try the gentle voice of Bing Crosby with “White Christmas”.  If you like your music a little funkier then you’re in need of some 80’s pop holiday hits from the likes of Slade. You can’t even be too metal to like Christmas music as there are hundreds of metal covers and even some original tracks too like Twisted Sister “Heavy Metal Christmas” which is a play on the 12 days of Christmas. Here are our top 10 Christmas songs: Bobby Helms “Jingle Bell Rock” So this song might make you think of Mean Girls or even that “adult” version but put that out of your mind, because this is the original and best! Every line of this song just shouts Christmas and we all know it’s one you can dance to. The repetition and simplicity of this song make it so catchy that you can’t help sing it all season long. Bing Crosby “Winter Wonderland” That beautifully smooth voice and catchy tune make this is a song you can listen to all winter long without the guilt of dragging out the Christmas songs. This is a tune that makes you feel warm inside, like any good Christmas song should. A must have to any festive playlist.Christmas Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You” What do you get for the lady who has everything? You, apparently! A beautiful message that all you need is love at Christmas time and sung by the lovely Madame Carey too, what’s not to like? We all know that this song gets sung in jest to friends and co-workers at the office party more than eligible lovers, it is just a great feel good Christmas anthem that you have to love! Slade “Merry Xmas Everybody” Now, this is a good Christmas tune in its own right, but we all listen to it in anticipation of hearing singer, Noddy Holder, shriek “It’s Christmaaaaaaaaaas” We always get it wrong, we know we do, but we like to play the game (SPOILER: It’s at the very end of the song) It’s a typically British song, perfect for a good old fashion British Christmas.
