Grab your mates and make plans.

Halloween is over and you know what that means...Christmas is coming. Actually, it doesn't because the Christmas decorations and memorabilia in shops is getting earlier and earlier with each year but even Scrooge himself would enjoy seeing the Coca-Cola truck passing by his house.

As is the norm, the lorry will be touring around the UK and its voyage starts in Glasgow on 11th November.

Don't worry though because the festive cheer is going to be spread to 42 locations across the UK.

If you want to see if your city is on the travel itinerary, you can do so here.

At present, here ate the locations where the Coca-Cola Christmas truck will be visiting. All together now, 'Holidays are coming, holidays are coming....'

Aedamar Howlett, marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britain, said: "Coca-Cola is synonymous with the Christmas season and it's no secret that our much-loved Christmas Truck Tour marks the unofficial countdown to Christmas. We can't wait to start spreading holiday cheer and we are excited to announce a brand new route for 2017 - which brings a sprinkling of festive magic to fans across the UK."

This being said, in Liverpool, there have been calls to ban the truck from visiting the city. The city’s Liberal Democrat party believe the Coca-Cola event should not take place because Liverpool "is in the grip of an obesity epidemic".

According to the Liverpool Echo, Councillor Richard Kemp wrote a letter to the local shopping centre which will be hosting the event. In that letter, he objected to the Coke truck visiting on the grounds that children already consume too many sugary drinks.
