The only way to keep warm this winter

Too early? Never. With Halloween out of the way, there’s no excuse for everything not to begin to look a lot like Christmas and as usual Dublin will be ringing in the festive season in style. Literally, as Funky Christmas Jumpers, Ireland’s original Christmas jumpers company, have just opened their store on South William Street. Spend your €40 now and you’ll definitely comply with the “cost per wear” philosophy. Geansaí Nollaig Day is due to return, date to be confirmed, but they’ll be looking to set the world record for the biggest gathering of seasonal sweater wearers in one place, all in aid of Foróige

The folks at the Lighthouse Cinema are gearing up for their “Christmas Lights House” festival, and are taking suggestions on Twitter (@LightHouseD7) for which Christmas films for grown-ups they will show this year, keep your eyes peeled for more news

If a little jaunt on the Dart is not entirely unappealing, take yourself to Dun Laoghaire, where the preparations begin in earnest on the 9th of December, where the Christmas markets and Winter Wonderland will be open until the 23rd of December

The Docklands Christmas festival will run from the 7th until the 23rd of December in the IFSC, from 12 noon to 8pm daily. Wrap up warm, have a go on the vintage carousel and eat some fudge.

The Christmas lights on Grafton Street will be switched on at 5pm tomorrow, Thursday November 15th, and on Henry Street at 4.30pm on Sunday the 18th. There is so much to do in Dublin over Christmas, so don’t miss out. The John Lewis ad is here, selection boxes are on the shelf, it’s time.
