Christmas Ready Meals: Tis' the Season to be Jolly

Added 1068 days ago. 23 November 2018

With the holiday season fast approaching, we are so excited to indulge in the Christmas festivities, and we hope you are too.

With recent generations now living through the lens of social media, we wanted to head back to some festive traditional roots and revisit some of those nostalgic Christmas traditions that we all love.

Christmas Cards 

Do you still send a traditional Christmas card?

Part of the traditional celebrations of Christmas, the common act of sending a greeting card has been around for centuries. They help convey messages or a religious sentiment between loved ones.  

In recent years however, Christmas cards have become less popular, being replaced with text messages, thus losing that same level of sentiment associated with sending a hand-written card.

If you are going to send a card this year, it’s always a doubly nice idea to purchase charitable Christmas cards, helping fantastic causes while posting some festive goodwill.  

Christmas Dinner 

Nothing says Christmas more than a traditional Christmas lunch with all the delicious trimmings. It’s a tradition we just so happen to be well versed in at Wiltshire Farm Foods, which we love to celebrate. 

We understand that getting everything ready for Christmas can be stressful if we leave preparations to last minute. From the frantic dash to the shops for last minute gifts, to attempting to find ingredients for the perfect Christmas dinner – plan and order ahead is our advice.  

And while this year might be a little different, it does not mean you can’t enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner from the safety and comfort of your own home. You can place an order with us and we’ll take care of the rest – from preparation through to delivery.

Our prepared Christmas dinners, rustled up by our expert Chefs, offers 13 brand new dishes, as well as some traditional favourites, sure to give you that Christmas feeling – while removing the stress of cooking and allowing you to spend more time with family and friends.

Go all out with our luxury Christmas pudding. Packed with fruits and spiced with nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, Dorset ale and French brandy.

Queen’s Speech 

After dinner entertainment traditionally begins with the Royal Christmas message. Watching the Queen’s Speech is as much of a tradition as putting up your Christmas tree, or tucking into your Christmas dinner and then falling asleep on the sofa after a little overindulgence. The tradition began in 1932 with a radio broadcast by King George V, and is now delivered by Queen Elizabeth II and has been televised since 1957.    

Christmas Carols 

You can be sure to find a hint of festive nostalgia in a Christmas Carol service. Joyful Christmas Carols date back to pagan times, where people came together to sing traditional hymns in the celebration of Jesus. Joining a choir near you can help gain a sense of community at this joyful time and may spark a new hobby to enjoy all year round. Finding a free taster session in your area is a great way to test your vocal chords while having fun too! 

Christmas Markets & Lights

Christmas is a time to spend with family and friends, so a good ol’ family outing, enjoying festive events together can be a fun way to make everlasting memories. Visit a town or city near you hosting a Christmas market or Christmas Lights switch on – stopping by famous department stores to enjoy festive window displays never gets old.

Christmas Crackers 

They may be famous for their bad jokes, but do you know the history of the Christmas cracker?  

A traditional favourite in the UK, Christmas Crackers were first created by Tom Smith in 1845. He was a sweet maker, inspired by the idea of adapting his French bon-bons to open with a crack when their decorative wrappers were pulled in half. His business was further expanded by his family, introducing hats which were thought to symbolise crowns worn by the Three Wise Men.  

A range of themed crackers soon grew and to this day the British Royal Family still have special crackers made for them!
