Christmas is just around the corner. But while the shopping centres fill up with mad dash bargain hunters and the TV ad breaks are filled with festive favourites, another fact of the season is the dismal weather!
Long dark nights and short, cold days aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, even if it is Christmas!
So if your attention is turning overseas, here’s our pick of destinations for a sunny Christmas getaway:
