IT’S DECEMBER, THAT CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING; PARTY, PARTY, PARTY. WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN PLENTY OF NIGHTS OUT, POSH DINNERS AND FAMILY GET TOGETHERS? THERE IS NO DENYING PARTIES ARE GREAT, BUT DECEMBER IS GREAT FOR COSING UP NEXT TO A FIRE WITH A HOT CHOCOLATE TOO. YOU ARE BOUND TO LOVE BOTH OPTIONS, BUT HOW EXACTLY DO YOU DITCH THE NIGHT CLUB FOR A NIGHT IN? HERE’S 5 EXCUSES THAT YOU CAN USE THIS PARTY SEASON. 

December is an entire month of a jam-packed social calendar. You will need multiple outfits, an over-flowing purse and heaps of energy to even begin to attempt making it to January. It sounds all glitter and fun, right? It might be, but there are bound to be times when all you want to do is skip the dance floor, snuggle up with a hot chocolate, get lost in a den of blankets and watch endless Christmas films.

Need an excuse to do exactly that? You’re in the right place. Here are 5 excuses you can use to have that night in your are so desperately craving:

1. You already have party plans

It is party season after all.

Everyone is a social butterfly at this time of year; it’s totally believable that you have other plans. A work-do, a friends birthday or a family get together will easily get you out of an invite! Just skip the Snapchat of you in bed surrounded by snacks and blankets. 

2. You have no money

Why is Christmas so expensive?

It will come as no surprise to your friends if you are completely broke at this time of year. As a student, it’s hard to not max your overdraft in any month, it’s understandable that you will be poorer than ever around Christmas. Turn on the guilt by claiming to need the money for your families Christmas presents and you should have people off your back straight away.

3. You’ve been hit with the flu

Who doesn’t have the flu in December?

It’s cold, you can’t afford heating and just about everyone on campus is ill; of course you are too! Fake a cough, sniff repeatedly and there’s no way you will be deemed fit for a night out. Stay in, drink endless tea and act like the poor, ill person you are pretending to be. 

4. Fake an injury

Who wants to go out with an injury?

No one wants to have to look after the injured person on a night out. If you are going to be a burden, your friends are more than likely to politely tell you to skip this one. Your friends will want you to stay in almost as much as you do; it’s a win, win situation.

5. You have a scheduled night-in

Going out is the new staying in

Sure, December is all about going out but it also offers plenty of opportunities for a night in too. It’s the month of wine and cheese and what better way to take advantage of that than being sat in your pjs watching Saturday night TV. Invite friends over and then you really do get the best of both worlds; company from the comfort of your own home. 

So there you have it. Your ultimate guide for ditching a night out… but don’t overuse them it wouldn’t be Christmas without some partying!
