Christmas is the greatest time of year. Fact. Actually, slight correction, it’s the second greatest time of year behind April. April is the greatest time of year because mini eggs are on sale.
Anyway, Christmas is great. You can eat what the hell you like, when you like. Cheese and chocolate for breakfast on 25th? Not one grumble from my mum (I’m 28 years old FYI). Drinking on a Tuesday because it’s December? Go ahead!
We were grateful enough back in 2019 to have been invited to the Oxted Christmas light switch on and took a couple of Mustangs. We parked them up outside Everyman Oxted and Pipers Florist and got very lucky when a photographer (Craig Sugden) came by to take some incredible shots ... Website Pete, do your thing here please.
Every Christmas we get inundated with gift voucher purchases and we absolutely love it. Picturing peoples faces as they realise that they get to drive one of our classic cars is pretty cool. And they’ll get to meet us which is even better, we’re bloody delightful. Our gift vouchers are entirely customisable and can be purchased for the entire value or part of the value of a classic car hire experience.
On top of our ‘standard’ gift vouchers, earlier this year we launched our picnic hamper package. From £355 you’ll have a classic car of your choice, 5 hour hire and a picnic hamper for two. We’re offering vouchers this year for our picnic hampers too. They make for a brilliant Christmas gift and allows the recipient to book their own date and hire in as and when suits them.
I’m always very conscious when describing Christmas as great. I often say it but also often think about those who don’t see Christmas as a great time of year. There are so many people out there who struggle with what is supposed to be the happiest time of year. There are so many organisations out there who do some unbelievable work to ensure people get through this period. There are so many to name but huge shoutouts to Stripey Stork, Shelter, Samaritans, MIND & Crisis.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Oxted Classics!
