Let the Festivities BEGIN!

Have a very merry Christmas but don't let the good times spoil the fun - if you know what I mean!
Drink safe - drink a glass of water between each 'real' drink.
Use small glasses for alcohol.

DON'T drive - organise a taxi, designate a non-drinking captain for the night or a mini-bus if there are enough of you.
NEVER get into a taxi on your own without telling someone else first.
If you are with friends - stay together there really is safety in numbers.

Watch your heels - if you are dancing all night or on your feet, wear comfortable and fashionable shoes (or if your bag is big enough take the comfortable pair with you)
Watch out for your friends - we all need a guardian angel
Lastly - enjoy the fabulous-ness of Christmas by being responsible and a good citizen - and with total recall!
