It’s the 1st December and the countdown to the Christmas and New Year holidays has begin in earnest. I guess there are some cynics among us who would say that the countdown starts in September as soon as Christmas gift boxes appear on the supermarket shelves, replacing sun tan lotion and mechanical Santas start ho-ho-ho-ing in the aisles of the local garden centre. Personally I try to wear blinkers for as long as possible to save up the excitement. This year I found it particularly weird back in the early Autumn when Chris Evans started his breakfast show half an hour earlier at 6.30am, opening on a daily basis with Andy Williams singing my favourite Christmas song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” All that aside – as soon as I open that first door on my advent calendar – that’s when it all starts for me.
Of course, here at TLH Leisure Resort in Torquay, the festive season begins with our first Turkey and Tinsel Breaks at the beginning of November, when groups of friends join in a weekend or mid-week break to party together. It really is a great feeling to see people enjoying themselves and having a good time – and let’s face it – we all deserve some fun in our lives these days. These breaks adopt the popular theme of celebrating all of the main days of the festive season in one fun packed break. “Christmas Eve” includes carols and mulled wine, on “Christmas Day” there’s a visit from Santa before guests enjoy traditional Christmas fayre in the restaurant,” Boxing Day” sees our talented Entertainment Team performing their special Christmas show and “New Year’s Eve” is celebrated in style with a gala dinner followed by party night with Kevin of KB Sounds.
This, of course, is only a potted version of the main Christmas and New Year celebrations here at TLH. The days and nights are packed with a sparkling variety of activities and entertainment, not forgetting all the delicious food and drinks our chefs prepare. Everyone has a fantastic time, and we’ve just got a few rooms left for anyone who hasn’t made any plans yet, so come and join in the party. Call 01803 400500 to book.
