Why not shake up your winter and wake up on Christmas morning with an entirely different view? A sunny festive getaway is a favourite of many, and it's easy to see why. Many resorts offer special Christmas morning breakfasts, Boxing Day brunches, gala dinners, and parties on NYE, plus the big guy himself sometimes manages to pay a visit.
