Wight Christmas

Christmas tree

Michelle has put together some Christmas thoughts and ideas of what Christmas means to her and some tips for island festive fun.

The festive season is upon us and with it the perfect opportunity  to send out messages of kindness, hope and love, take some time to care about the people who mean a lot to you and do what you can to help someone less fortunate. Lavish  your homes in festive colours with twinkling lights and winter scents to shed a feeling of warmth and joy and evoke happy memories that will linger on. Christmas is a time for spreading peace and happiness so use this time to create magic moments. We live in a beautiful world that is ever changing and evolving, try and notice the changes, listen to what the world is telling you and act according to what it needs, above all smile at the wonder, and glow with the magic that this time of year brings.

Christmas here at Tiny Homes Holidays is kept simple – we gently decorate the cabins along with the studio and the vibe is as chill as always!

There’s plenty of local festivities happening to keep you having a jolly time on our island at this time of year so here’s a few ideas to keep your spirits up:

Haven street Steam Railway are running a traditional Christmas Santa Special  There’s always a lovely Christmas atmosphere with lots to see as you wander around the nostalgic grounds perfect for all generations.

Osborne House, the Islands favourite royal heritage house. This year you can visit Santa for storytelling and a present, whilst enjoying the wonderful grounds that never fail to impress.

The Wildheart animal sanctuary in Sandown have lots going on this Christmas with a special reindeer stables and Santa in his grotto there’s various various different events happening on different days including carols so it’s best to check the website for details. 

For something extraordinary do make time for a visit to The Christmas Imaginarium – open all year but of course even more spectacular during the festive season! It’s an Isle of Wight original

No Christmas would be complete without the ahhhh factor and a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary – it’s a perfect opportunity to do something charitable whilst reflecting on the four legged friend that played a huge part in the traditional Christmas story, Santa will be there on set dates too.
