The Christmas period is about to begin and with plenty of people to see and things to do there will be no time to be watching football or going to matches. Well for the majority of Europe that is not a problem as the winter break has just begun for some leagues, while other leagues have finished for the year.
Well that is not the case in England as the Premier League continues its traditional Christmas season fixtures. The Christmas period will see games played on Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
While the likes of Italy, Spain, France and Germany will have Christmas off and we will not see them until the new year, but the Premier League has been having Christmas games for years and it is such a big event. Sitting down on Boxing Day watching your favourite team after having an exhausting Christmas Day, Boxing Day is a day to put your feet up and watch some football in the comfort of your own home. Not only is it a tradition but you can get some surprising shocks at this time of year, with so many games in a short period of time players can become exhausted. So don’t be surprised if you see a team fighting for the title get beat by a team fighting relegation.
During the Christmas period we love nothing more than looking to see what movies are on TV and what matches are being played. It’s a Christmas tradition and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE, from Tiki Talka About Europe.
