Christmas, my favourite festive season. The whole atmosphere changes , people are happier. Christmas is one of those holidays that just seems to be filled with cheer and wonder. Whether you are celebrating a secular or religious Christmas, your day is sure to be filled with happiness.
However you decided to celebrate the Christmas, you can not avoid certain steps, to make it truly magical for you and your family.
1. Listen to your favourite Christmas songs. It sure make me very happy and warm inside. When you hear Christmas songs, instead of being grumpy smile and whistle along. Being cheerful during the Christmas season really will help in spreading Christmas spirit to those around you, plus it helps you enjoy it more too. Wish others a Merry Christmas if you know they celebrate Christmas. If you’re not sure, just say Happy Holidays! Either way, you are spreading the holiday cheer.
or, very popular this year, and I love it is :
2.Let yourself be a kid again and enjoy the holiday spirit. Whether it’s leaving cookies out for Santa Claus, watching for Baba Noel out the window, leaving carrots for Rain deer, or leaving your boots by the fire for Santa, indulge in a little holiday tradition and give into the magic.
3.Decorate your house for Christmas. The possibilities for decorating are nearly endless. Put Christmas lights on your house. Hang mistletoe in the doorways (particularly if you know that special someone is coming over,) hang a homemade wreath on your door, or put Christmas figurines like Santa or Rudolph out on your counters.
4.Buy and decorate a Christmas Tree. Go with your family to your local Christmas tree farm to cut your own or head to a lot selling pre-cut Christmas trees. Pick out a Christmas tree that fits your house. After you’ve gotten your tree situated, wrap it in lights and begin hanging the ornaments. Don’t forget to water it occasionally and safeguard it from pets!
- You can decorate your tree with family heirloom ornaments or try something new by decorating a tree with Star Trek or superhero themed ornaments, or with little trains, or with Disney characters for example. It’s really up to you–be as creative or traditional as you like.
5.Buy gifts for your fiends and family. And do not forget , it is all about giving. There are so many toys, gadgets, books, digital items out there, that will make a perfect gift your son and daughter, and that someone special in your life.
As a mum of 2 children, boy age 11 and little girl age 6, I have to make sure I get all the presents before they break for Christmas. I would like to share some of the items I have purchased already, and hope it will give you some ideas also.
