This Christmas, 43 million Brits are expected to head out for a stroll, according to conservation charity the National Trust, and it's a good thing, too! It may not be too surprising to yourself but more than two thirds of people commend the annual Christmas Day walk as the perfect way to spend quality time together, topping other festive activities such as watching TV or preparing Christmas dinner! Research has shown us that the traditional Christmas walk slashes family arguments on Christmas Day by half! Did you know the National Trust found that walking is considered a bicker-free festive activity by 82 per cent of Brits.
