Enjoy a magical Christmas at home this year


Hello… and welcome to our jam-packed Christmas Mini-Site just in time to welcome the beautiful winter season. Let’s start by saying that we’re so lucky to live in a town like Omagh, where everything we could ever want or need is simply on our doorsteps.

Walking down Omagh town when the Christmas lights are glowing in the dark is a truly wonderful experience, as is shopping on Main Street with your loved ones to buy that perfect gift for someone special.

So why not make Christmas an extra-special holiday this year by shopping local, soaking up the buzzing atmosphere of the town as strangers and familiar faces hurriedly make their way from local shop-to-shop, and taking a family tour of the lights.

Here to get you into the festive spirit, our seasonal min-site is filled to the brim with everything from cosy recipes for those cold, wintry nights, all your favourite Christmas movie facts and a look at nostalgic Xmas songs from years gone by.

Undecided about what to buy your child or teen this year? No problem, we have a comprehensive list of the most sought-after toys this year, as well as the low-down of all the top video games of 2016.

And don’t think we’ve stopped at just that – if you need inspiration about what to buy your pet too, then read on.

Kids, if you’re looking forward to writing to Santa Claus this year, we have all the details of how you do that, while the adults can enjoy reading bite size facts and legends about the Christmas season littered throughout the pages.

We also hope you enjoy our feature on the most cosy and in-trend items of clothing to wear this winter – and what’s more is that all of the items can be purchased from shops across the town.

If you like the sound of making cute snowy owl biscuits with your family, as well as how to create the most-loved Christmas hot drinks then we’ve got you sorted.

And if you’re a vegetarian, you’re also in luck – we’ve even got a easy-to-make and yummy Christmas dinner recipe just for you.

So without further ado, boil yourself a hot cuppa, put your feet up and simply enjoy our special festive min-site
Merry Christmas from all at the Ulster Herald!
