Twixmas: 12 Ways to Spend the Post-Christmas Lull

From feng shui-ing your bedroom to upgrading your wardrobe, get ready to seize the New Year with a few genuinely useful things to do in that dull post-Christmas period

By: Verity Clark

Have you heard of Twixmas? Yes, it might be the world’s worst portmanteau but it has certainly become A Thing. It describes the period otherwise known as the 12 Days of Christmas. Often mistaken for the 12 days leading up to the big day, it actually refers to the period of time between Christmas Day until January 6th – who knew? If you want to get into the nitty gritty Christian theology behind it, then essentially it marks the time between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi, or the three wise men. But you probably better know it as that weird period of time where you wear the same jumper for over a week, resort to eating even the Bounty’s from the box of Celebrations and have watched every single Christmas TV special. Twice. Is there anything better you could be doing with your time? We have a few ideas. Or a dozen to be precise. So here they are: 12 ways to fill your days that will help you to get through this blurry occasion unscathed.
