For some Christmas may seem far away, but in Inishowen this November the festive season is beginning to come upon us. Across the peninsula there are many Christmas Craft fairs, the perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon browsing among all the unique products and perhaps picking up a few Christmas gifts along the way.
