Editors note: Festive fun for all

‘Tis the season for all manner of occasions, get-togethers, and frivolity.

‘Tis also the season for over-indulgence, high spirits, and gifting so you’d better watch out, better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to town. Throughout the Christian world, adults and children alike are counting down the days until the fat guy supposedly slips down the chimney, and delivers a sackful of bounty; some of which will be well received, and some of which will find its way on to TradeMe the following day. For a few short hours, children and parents will be happy.

Within a few days, many will celebrate again, cheering as the old year ends, and a new one begins. New Year’s resolutions will be to the fore, yet experience tells us that most of these will have passed their use-by date within a few weeks. Our team at Metropol will be taking a well deserved break, which will probably include all of the above, as well as chilling out at home and abroad, and enjoying what Christchurch has to offer.

As usual at this time of year, there are numerous action-packed events to attend, and a dynamic vibe through the central city’s hospitality arena. Some of them feature on the following pages. Don’t forget the outer areas, the vibrant small heartland towns that also come alive during the festive season. In the meantime, thanks to all those who have helped to produce Metropol, to our readers, and our advertisers.

We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas holiday break, and keep an eye out for our 2024 issue on 25 January.
