Christmas always represents a fun but tough challenge for many people as there’s so much to see and do, but the inclement weather often means that many of us will want to stay housebound.

Thankfully, the internet has provided us with many ways to enjoy the best of the season without having to negotiate the icy roads outside. So if you’re looking to make your hibernation a little more festive, try some of these great stay-at-home tips!

Get the Festive Feeling!

Food is a massive part of any Christmas, and if you can’t stand waiting in line at your supermarket, most major food retailers now offer a good delivery service. This means that you can try some yummy recipes from some of Canada’s best food bloggers like Dinner with Julie – the wookie cookies being a particularly fun choice!

Similarly this is the time of the year where many of the biggest releases hit our cinema screens. But thanks to the likes of Netflix we can all pick and choose own our festive movie experience. And whilst Christmas used to mean arguing with the family over a Monopoly board, there’s no shortage of housebound gaming fun thanks to the range of online options.

So whether you’re playing fun app-based party games like HeadsUp, or want to try new online slots machines here at Red Flush Casino, it shows that we can enjoy endless entertainment from the convenience of our comfy sofa!

The online slots games at Red Flush Casino are pretty handy as they provide some good payouts which will help when you encounter that other big festive activity – the post-Christmas sales!

But rather than waiting for hours in the cold outside your local department store, the online shopping revolution has given us all a great chance to spend our casino winnings online as many retailers now begin their sales as early as Christmas Eve.

However, it’s Boxing Day when most Canadians head out to try and grab the biggest bargains, but rather than facing the inevitable scrum, online shopping provides a much less stressful experience. And you can even save some extra pennies if you keep an eye on the online voucher sites which can offer big discounts for the savvy home-shopper.

Above all, rather than spending unnecessary money whilst heading out, this time of year represents a moment where we get to enjoy some real ‘me’ time and forget about the worries of the working world.

So if that means playing some casino games, or just trying out a tasty new recipe, Christmas provides another great excuse to stay home and have fun!
