Christmas 2021 Day Four

By Jo Phillips

It’s the holiday season; the air is crisp and cold and the snow has arrived. It’s the time of year for seeing loved ones, gifting, and the odd drink or three. We also do love to dress up and put on our best outfits including a great pair of heels or a soft leather-soled shoe. But be careful out there with much merriment and slippery shoes don’t get caught out carrying all those gifts whilst a bit ‘sqiffie’ and slip on the ice, therefore, dropping all those divine presents. Just in case you need a little inspiration why not check out our twelve days of Christmas 2021 with Day Four Here.
