It’s the season of giving! 5 charities you should donate to this Christmas

Lifestyle
For this festive season, why not try and do something for those who aren’t as fortunate as we are? Christmas is the holiday most of us look forward to each year. It's the time to spend with family, be thankful and of course, get a lot of gifts! However some people may not be as lucky as we are. Scroll down to see a list of charities running different kinds of christmas donations. The Salvation Army The Salvation Army is a church and a registered charity.

Discovering the sound of Christmas

Discovering the sound of Christmas

Christmas, culture, Featured, Music
Christmas is a time of joy, with magic lights hanging all over the city and people giving gifts to each other. But trust us, none of this would make any sense without a good soundtrack. From Bing Crosby's White Christmas, a classic of the season, to Sia's newest holiday album, Everyday is Christmas, we went out in the cold to explore the sound of Christmas.

Grab your warmest coat and get yourself down to the land of all things winter: hot chocolate, mulled wine and a hell of a load of fake snow.  Yes, Winter Wonderland is back and you know you can’t resist. Even though we’ve been every year, the excitement never dies out. And this year is no different. Christmas carols playing in the background. The smell of warm chestnuts. The little chalet-style market huts that make you feel like you’re in the mountains. Seeing your breath linger in the air every time you speak.

Winter is coming and the red cups, syrups, sprinkles, and marshmallows are everywhere! Yes, it’s Christmas season once again, which means it’s time to swap the iced cold lattes for something a bit warmer and cosier, because who needs to worry about their summer bodies now? Britain's favourite coffee shops seem to up their game every year, bringing us more indulgence, a wider selection and of course, more sugar to keep us warm for a chilly winter ahead. A coffee or hot chocolate in a festive cup seems like an ideal way to cosy up, but it is probably not the greatest idea to have them daily. Why? Because all those tempting syrups and creams can send the calorie and fat content through the roof, with some accounting for nearly your entire daily recommended sugar intake (25g or 6 tablesp
