7 reasons NOT to go to Winter Wonderland this year

Whether you’re going to take a wintery Instagram pic or just need an excuse to add whiskey to your hot chocolate at 4pm, it’s time to finally accept it - Winter Wonderland is just not that great. At the risk of being a big old Scrooge, here’s seven reasons why it might be better to stay home this Christmas season. Reporter: Hannah Grafton | Sub-Editor: Frances Cullen   1.
