Proactively promoting their christmas ranges, with an encouragement to purchase online. has also noticed a few christmas tree farms announced that they will not be opening this season due to the pandemic. Yet others are like wise making new websites and new webpages, with the last week of November being the opening dates.

Some christmas tree farms will be limiting customers at their out of town christmas tree farms, with a pre booking only system, for customers. Indeed one major central London supplier of christmas trees to Central London Offices and large trees for council outdoor locations has announced it will not be operating this year, and wishes all it's customers a good christmas and will see them again next year.

Removal of a development page from the site

A near duplicate page has gone: 

An advertisers or registered members page with a tabulated list format showing the current status of an account, has today been removed from the site, this particular page was used primarily as a testing and database debugging page. Advertisers content can now be seen on all pages with the following url  

To view or search for businesses or services that are operating at christmas please visit the home page and continuing browsing from there. 

Also would like to give a brief update the website. A lot of work has taken place in the background to bring you a fully comprehensive and user interactive directory of christmas related information, business operating and services open at this often quite time of year.

During the next two weeks there will be more news updates on the development of the site. Please note there are now four new pages accessible from the footer area of many pages. That are there to help and assist visitors or new registered members to use the site to their best advantage

Mixed Messages for Christmas 2020

The traditional what's on at christmas websites

Are somewhat uncertain about what will be open this year 2020 

Quite a few are still displaying last years opening details, whilst others are openly admitting to being uncertain about what events or what places are going to be open. Rest assured this blog and the accompanying website will continue to try and find for you recommended places to eat drink celebrate or to visit at christmas. Please at all times follow the guidelines of your local health authorities or the most recent government advice, regarding social distancing and crowd numbers especially inside when visiting other members of your family friends or relatives.

It does seem to be the case that the virus spreads more easily in home settings when lots of people are confined indoors for long periods.
