If there is one universal truth we can all agree on, it’s that Christmas is all about children.

Simply put, December is nothing short of purely magical for the little’uns in your life.

While you may love the festive season with every fibre of your being, there’s no denying that the magic dulls somewhat the older you get.

If you’re in the business of fighting this hard fact tooth and nail, why not treat yourself and the smallies in your family to some stunning Christmas events?

While recapturing the magic for yourself, you’ll be providing the little people in your life with a whole host of memories.

Take a look at these…

If you are thoroughly lacking a signifigant other and have accepted the fact that no amount of Tinder swiping will cause you to acquire one before the big event, then it's time to gear up for Galentine's Day.

Galentines Day involves eschewing the shackles of romantic relationships and celebrating the annual day of love with your besties. 

But what to do when the restaurants are full of PDA-offending lovers and Instagram is full of pictures of Mchael Kors bags with the hashtag best boyfriend ever? 

1. The ultimate girls night out

 

A photo posted by modàfashion. (@glamxmoda) on

An obvious choice but a complete classic. 

Get your unattached ladies around for some predrinks and make some cocktail recipes you found on the internet, then paint the town red.

Everyone will be out for the shift, so if that's not your style, cackle in delight as you rebut the advances of the opposite sex. Or get the shift, you do you, girl. 

2. Have a date night with your favourite actor

Not literally unfortunately, George Clooney will probably be busy with Amal.

But settling in for the night with a handful of movies featuring your ultimate thespian crush is the next best thing.

Don't forget to stock up on popcorn, pizza and wine so you don't have to move for the night. 

3. Fifty Shades of Grey

Just like last year, the new Fifty Shades of Grey instalment is out around Valentines Day.

There is no better way to spend an evening than giggling at a rude movie with your best friends, and the experience will only be heightened by the fact that the cinema will be full of fellow females laughing at the cheesy romantic film. If BDSM can be considered romantic. 

Booking in advance is probably a good idea, as cinemas can get pretty busy on V-Day. 

4. Laugh until you cry…

…instead of just crying.

There are plenty of comedy gigs going on every night around the country, so if you and your girls need some cheering up on Galentine's, then a comedy show is a good way to get the laughs going. 

Plus it's Valentines Day, so the comedian will probably be taking the p*** out of couples and romance to please your bitter, single heart. 

5. Pamper day

 

A photo posted by L U N A (@nocomay) on

While this one is the ultimate cliche, getting a mani pedi with your best friend and then heading home to veg out wearing face masks is a pretty relaxing endeavour.

Meet up after work (V-Day lands on a Tuesday this year) for some evening treatments and then relax and reminisce on the ghosts of boyfriends past. 

After all, sometimes romance can be fleeting, but your girls are there for life.

Summer is jam-packed with gigs and festivals – it's probably why it's our favourite season of the year (well, that and the sun, obvs).

But sometimes there's so many concerts and weekend fests that we just don't know which one (or three) to choose from.

Here, we've complied a list of the best music events on around Ireland over the next few months – ones you'll be totally devo if you miss out on them:

1. Longitude

With The Coronas, Kendrick Lamar and The Lumineers all set to take to the stage, Longitude Festival is definitely something you'll want to experience. Taking place in Marley Park from July 15 to 17, it's going to be a great weekend.

 

2. Groove

Groove Festival is taking place in Kilruddery House, Co. Wicklow on July 2 and 3. Between acts such as Aslan, Ocean Colour Scene and The Academic all taking to the stage, and the Celtic Kitchen dishing out some fab Irish grub, you'll be spoiled for choice at this fest.

 

3. Castlepalooza 

This Irish independent festival will see Jurassic 5, Lynched, and Tiger and Woods playing over the weekend at Chareville Castle in Tullamore, so it's something that's not to be missed. Throw that in with good July weather (fingers crossed) and it's a dream come true.

 

4. Electric Picnic

More acts have just been announced for EP including Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, The 1975, Nas and Joey Badass. Taking place in Stradballay in 63 days (we're not counting.. *cough*), this year's Picnic is looking epic already.

 

5. Shemazing! Gig with Róisín O (obvs)

Yes! We are hosting our very own gig that's definitely not to be missed. With Róisín O headlining on the night – and loads more acts to be announced – it's going to kick off July with a bang. Just keep your eyes peeled, you have no idea what we have in store *mischievous face emoji*. You can get your tickets here.

Double Act, The Suitcase Kid, The Story of Tracy Beaker, Vicky Angel… If you're getting all the nostalgic feels just hearing those words then we have some great news for you.

As one of the most successful children's authors of the last two decades, Dame Jacqueline Wilson has penned countless bestsellers, but for the most part she shies away from the public eye.

If you're a fan of her work though, get yourself to the RDS on May 5 at 6.30pm, where Jacqueline will be speaking as part of Dublin's International Literature Festival.

According the the event organisers, the famed author will be chatting about "some of her most popular characters, including Tracy Beaker and Hetty Feather, and her brand new book, Rent-a-Bridesmaid."

Tickets start at a (frankly bargainous) €5 for kids and €7 for adults and are on sale now.
