Christmas is always a super busy time. There is the present buying, the organising of family so you all arrive at the same place at the same time, the food prep and the extras like advent calendars, Elf on the shelf, and various works do's and events.

It is nice to sit back and try and enjoy the period. We spend so much time preparing for one day that we sometimes forget to make the most of the build-up and enjoy that Christmas spirit that makes December a little bit magical.

We have rounded up 9 ways you can maximise your enjoyment of Christmas in Lincolnshire. There are lots of events on from Wreath Making, to Christmas Fairs and Festive Afternoon Teas. Planning a time out might be just what you need to look back on this Christmas a little differently. Get the family together (or escape from them for a few hours) and make some memories.

Here are our top events that will make December more festive!
