The festive period is fast approaching, and we all like to enjoy some merriment. There will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy Christmas parties and have some festive drinks. Of course, you want to enjoy yourself as much as possible, but it’s also important to be safe. So, this is a guide for how you can enjoy a safe and joyful Christmas drink this year.
Don’t Over Indulge
Yes, Christmas is the time for overindulgence. In fact, it’s the one time of the year that it’s acceptable for us to over indulge. We all eat and drink a little too much, and that’s part of the enjoyment. But, when going for a Christmas drink (or two), it’s important to be sensible. You have to make sure you don’t overindulge too much. This is always going to end badly. If it’s the work Christmas party, then you risk making a fool of yourself. If it’s the local pub, you may end up causing a scene. Just try to slow down and enjoy yourself in a responsible manner. That way everyone gets to have a good time, and you will have fond memories of your experience.
Forget the Car
Honestly, at Crimbo time, just forget it. Leave the car at home! Seriously. There is no point in bringing it. Do you know the statistic for drink driving over the festive period? There is an average of almost 30,000 road accidents over the festive period. Many of these will be people who have been out for one or two drinks and decided they were fine to drive home. You might be able to find a great DWI attorney, but you’ll definitely need one, and that will be the least of your problems. Car accidents can cause serious injury and even death. And they will result in a lot of legal problems for you. If you take the car with you, then the temptation is there to use it. Seriously, just leave it at home.
Take the City By Storm
The best way to enjoy the ultimate Christmas drink is the hit the bright lights of the big city. Think about how many opportunities there are when you head into the city to enjoy a few well-earned Xmas beverages. The best part about it is that you don’t need to drive either, you can just get public transport. There will be loads of bars and pubs around, and many of them will be themed and made up like Christmas. If you’re in the UK, you should make sure you head to London this Christmas. If you’re back home, venture out into whatever city is closest to you. And take your gal pals with you. Safety in numbers and all that.
We all love a drink around Christmas time; that much is obvious. And there are a lot of occasions where it’s the perfect time for a seasonal party. You need to make sure you stay safe and happy while you enjoy your Christmas drink. And the way to do that is to try to be sensible, avoid driving and stick with a group of friends. That’s the blueprint for a great time this holiday season.
