Christmas is officially done and dusted, girls. Can you believe it?
Whilst many of us are prepping for New Years Eve, most of us have eaten all of the leftovers in the fridge, we’ve watched just about every festive film we can think of (twice, if not more) and we’re stuck in a repetitive cycle of not knowing what day it is. Don’t worry, it happens to all of us!
But here’s the thing, there’s actually a name for that weird in-between period post-Christmas, so if you've been feeling a little 'out of sorts', there's a reason for it. It’s called Twixmas, and no, it has absolutely nothing to do with the chocolate bar as much as we would have liked it to.
Twixmas officially starts from the 27th December and lasts all the way through to the 30th December. Just to clarify, it’s that weird period between Christmas and New Year’s Eve where nobody really knows what’s going on and a lot of us are usually still recovering from all the excessive eating and drinking (no changes this year!)
All of the days seem to roll into one and before we know it, the fireworks are out and it’s a whole new year. Funnily enough, people actually celebrate Twixmas in their own special way. Yes, really.
If you want to get a little bit historical, ‘Twixmas’ actually comes from the old English phrase ‘betwixt’ which means ‘in between’, so it’s actually a lot more fitting than what you may have first thought!
Have a break, have a…twixmas!
No, seriously. Twixmas breaks are an actual thing and we’re here for it. Anything that gives us an excuse to jump on a plane or hop in the car somewhere, count us in.
If it was any other year, a Twixmas break would have definitely been on the cards but unfortunately, we're living in a what feels like a pretty strange time. So, as always, we have another alternative for you, girls and yes, you can definitely put your feet up with this one.
More of a ‘stay home’ kinda girl? We’re with you.
Take advantage of the time off this Twixmas and get Lounging in all of the cosy comforts you need. Curling up with a good book, watching your favourite Christmas movie or simply enjoying a little TLC with all the face masks and festive cocktails you need will have you unwinding in no time. After all, Twixmas only comes round once a year.
If you want to opt for some super casual shopping instead to really make the most of this glorious season, we’re here for that as well.
Besides, what else are you going to spend all of that Christmas money you’ve been collecting on? Go on, you deserve a little Twixmas treat, Lounge style.
For someone you love or simply for you - because girl, you deserve it.
