Friend-mas: a great end to a term

In the past ten weeks on campus, the chances are that you have met a group of people you’re rather impartial to who you refer to as friends; whether that be flatmates, course mates or people you’ve met through societies. As the term comes to a close, there is the dilemma of celebrating the festive season with said people, before people return to their homes and  Christmas meal is the perfect solution. 


When organising a ‘Friend-mas’ of sorts, there are a few things to consider:

Venue- This could be viewed as the most critical element of your celebrations as it dictates if the meal will be homemade or provided by a restaurant. 

Type of Food- Just because it’s supposedly a Christmas meal it doesn’t have to be a roast. I’ve attended festive meals and enjoyed chips, Chinese and even spaghetti. The meal is just an excuse to get everyone to gather and have a good time, so consider what everyone wants and maybe have a mixture of different cuisines as a compromise.

Dress Code- You might want to dress up for once or just have a very casual on. Either way, make sure you’re comfortable. If you’re unsure, a   Christmas jumper or hat never goes amiss, especially when you’re getting in the spirit.

Entertainment- After all, your munching, you probably want to make some memories. I would recommend having some group games like charades or Guess who, which really get the conversation flowing.

Bits and Bobs- If you’re going for that extra Christmas touch, then you may wanna make sure you do these last few things organising a white elephant and making sure you pick up some Christmas crackers. 


Anyways however you choose to celebrate the end of this term, just make sure you have fun.
