With Christmas fast approaching, you may be finishing off some last minute pieces of coursework, or you may be ready to relax and unwind. But either way, you’ll probably be cramming in some time with your new student family. From friends on your course, to your new flatmates, the chances are, your Christmas will be fairly sociable. One of the most common ways to celebrate together is by planning a Christmas meal. And you’ll be relieved to know that there are several different options available. These include:

  • A traditional roast
  • The classic takeaway
  • An alternative roast
  • A favourite dish

A traditional roast

This is probably the most time consuming option. From selecting the right meat and veg, to food prep and cooking, a traditional Christmas dinner can be expensive, and take up a lot of time. But it is also one of the most popular options. After all, would it really be Christmas without the roast dinner?

The classic takeaway

For students with deadlines, work and other responsibilities, a traditional roast can be too much of a time commitment. Instead, some students opt for a classic takeaway. That way, everyone can eat whatever they like, while still spending quality Christmas time together. Crackers go well with a pizza, dont they?

An alternative roast

While an increasing number of people are becoming more environmentally conscious, the vegan diet is also on the rise. And this means that you might be thinking about an alternative roast, suitable for vegans. This is a great way to make sure everyone can join in with the festivities, and it is slightly less time consuming to prepare.
