    When you think of Crimbo trees, you probably think of classic fir or pine. Or ladder Christmas trees or Christmas pineapples if you’re the trendy type.

    Upside down ones are apparently the thing to buy now and some even have popcorn on them.

    But now, a 20-metre Christmas tree is giving visitors the chance to try out a 14-metre slide inside the tree.

    Yes, you heard correctly.

    A SLIDE.

    Forget mulled wine or standing around at crappy Christmas markets, the Slideatron propels visitors down in 18 seconds.

    If you’re looking for a fast thrill, this hits the spot.

    I mean why would you even ask that? Are you an enemy of Christmas?

    They are a wonderful addition in our otherwise dreary lives and should not be questioned.

    But if you really want to know the answer, here goes.

    Advent, comes from the Latin word for ‘coming toward’ and the period of Advent is coming toward Christmas.

    The Advent tradition is closely related to the Christian religions as for Christian’s Christmas is one of the holiest events of the year… Read the full story

    Make sure to catch the Coca-Cola truck this year (Picture: PA Wire)

    Nothing quite beats the glorious sound of the Coca-Cola trucks advert before the Christmas holidays start.

    It’s December, and that means holidays are coming, my friend.

    In my secondary school days, I started a casual debate with my friends asking which Coca-Cola advert they preferred, the trucks or the polar bears?

    I’m going to say this delicately.

    I’m not here to enrage, or get thrown out of the country, or be declared a miserable Scrooge.

    love Christmas. The second December hits, I believe you officially have permission to start stringing up fairy lights and covering things in tinsel. I love mulled wine, I love Christmas markets, I love wrapping presents.

    But I think it’s time that we all admit something and stop fearing the backlash.

    And yes, there will be backlash, because I understand that what we’re about to discuss is widely considered an essential part of British culture.

    Meghan Markle may be the new queen of coats – as well as being seriously excellent at hair, makeup, and all other fashion-related decisions.

    After the white coat Meghan wore to announce her engagement sold out online, Meghan showed up to her first official royal appearance with Prince Harry, to Nottingham, wearing another truly great outerwear option.

    This time around, Meghan’s gone for a maxi-length navy, double-breasted coat rather than pristine white.

    Yet again it’s from a Canadian brand – Mackage. The coat Meghan wore is the Elodie Navy Wool Coat from Mackage,… Read the full story

    I recently made the decision to give up alcohol for a while.

    As much as my love for a glass of red runs deep, alcohol had started to make my anxiety symptoms worse.

    I started noticing a pattern: after an evening of drinking, be it one glass or two bottles, I’d wake up the next day in the grip of a horrendous panic attack.

    Mince pies have always been one of my favourite things about Christmas. When I think back to the Christmas of my childhood, my mum’s homemade mince pies feature strongly. From the sticky glaze and her crumbly pastry to the incredible aroma that filled the kitchen while they were baking it simply wouldn’t have been Christmas without a mince pie. Or twenty.

    McDonald's ran out of bacon
    (Picture: McDonald’s/Metro.co.uk)

    Tragedy befell hungry people across the UK today, as they nipped into their nearest McDonald’s for a McMuffin only to be greeted with terrible news: No bacon was available.

    We know. It’s awful. People had to make do with egg and cheese McMuffin, longing for the joy of bacon for the rest of the day.

    McDonald’s branches in Devon, Essex, West Sussex, and Greater Manchester were hit with the bacon shortage, and according to Twitter, the McDonald’s in Leicester Square has been affected too.

    As a result of the missing pork, customers have been unable to purchase bacon rolls, bacon and egg McMuffins, and bacon and egg bagels.

    Online clothing store Pretty Little Thing has withdrawn a vest after facing backlash for its insensitive slogan: ‘Am I Skinny Yet?’

    After being spotted online, the vest was slammed for promoting eating disorders – not only for the slogan but also because of its sizing, due to the sports vest having only been stocked in an extra small size on the website.

    The vest first sparked outrage with customers back in January, when writer Emily Rose Grieve wrote an open letter to the brand telling them that ‘fitness is not just about being skinny’.

    Unfortunately, the vest was only removed from PLT’s website… Read the full story

    Do you have an armpit vagina? Probably, yes. (Picture: metro.co.uk)

    Oh, what fun it is to have a human body in the modern world.

    All of your entirely natural features are hideous and wrong and must be corrected through pricey products or painful treatments. Your cellulite, despite 90% of women having it, is bad. As are your stretch marks, and thighs that touch, and a stomach that isn’t flat after eating a large meal.

    It’s exhausting just keeping up with which body part we’re supposed to be stressed out over next, let alone dealing with the emotional wreckage caused by hating parts of ourselves which are entirely normal and healthy.

    Festive afternoon teas

    I love afternoon teas – they are the perfect excuse for hours of gossip and sweet tooth indulgence.

    But just before Christmas, the experience is a special kind of wonderful (hint, I quite like the festive season).

    Primark has launched its own customisation station so that shoppers can add a personal touch to what they wear.

    Last week, the fashion outlet launched its first customisation station in its Oxford Street East store.

    Primark-fanatics will be able to create their own t-shirts, choosing out of two designs – so if you’re a Disney or a Star Wars fan, you’re in for a treat.

    There will be several characters, slogans and patterns to choose from to customise your own shirt – designs include Aristocats’ Marie sat in a ring of flowers, and a very grumpy-looking Donald Duck.

    There are all sorts of festive ways to do your make up this season.

    From Christmas tree eye make-up to festive nail designs, you could look different every day for the rest of the month.

    But if you’re bored of candy cane eyes (although we’re not sure how you could be), why not look like an Elf On The Shelf the next time you go out?

    We first met seven years ago. I was still in school and I didn’t realise what you were. I was trying to live a normal, happy life, but it was hard when I felt you were always on my shoulder.

    At the time, you were something I had but I didn’t understand. You were something lots of people had, and in turn they didn’t understand either.

    You made me feel lost, alone, angry. Angry at myself for not feeling better. Furious with you that you wouldn’t leave me alone.

    I saw my doctor but I was too young for them to do anything about you. Hormones were blamed, my mental health disregarded. And so I was stuck with you. But I didn’t know how long I’d be stuck with you for.

    When I was 18, our relationship grew more intense. You started coming with me wherever I went. At times you consumed me. I felt as though I couldn’t breathe, a darkness lingering over… Read the full story

    It can be a risk buying something online, as you never quite know what’s going to arrive at your door.

    Whether it’s a pair of trousers that are way longer than they looked on the original product photo, or something different entirely, it’s incredibly annoying – especially having to take time out of your day to return and wait for a refund.

    One parent, who purchased a dinosaur-themed pillow for their child, has been faced with the latter.

    There’s no need to feel left out if you’re gluten-free this Christmas (Picture: Getty)

    Often, we focus so much on making Christmas dinner gluten-free, that we neglect to plan for dessert too.

    It’s not until everyone else is half-way through their desserts that you realise you’ve made a terrible mistake.

    Trust me, I’ve been there.

    That’s why I’ve made a round-up of the 10 best gluten-free desserts available in supermarkets this Christmas.

    There’s everything from gateau to trifle, Christmas puddings, profiteroles and more.

    When locals tell you Totnes is twinned with Narnia, they’re only half joking.

    There really is something a tiny bit magical about the place.

    9 reasons you should move to Brighton immediately

    Even if you don’t much go in for the new age claptrap and crystal shops, Totnes’s artsy vibe and fiercely independent spirit make it a unique, and globally renowned, hub for alternative lifestyles.

    Here are a few reasons why you should consider going west.

    We’ve all been there. You match with some cute guy or girl on Tinder or eHarmony, message each other for a while, and everything seems to be going well.

    You then tentatively set up a first date, and arrive for the big night only to find that: you actually have nothing to talk about/they look about as much like their photo as the Queen looks like the banknote portrait/you really don’t get on/they’re a bit creepy (delete as applicable).

    One of the thing that frustrates many us with IBD is the many years of struggling it takes us to reach a diagnosis.
