Everybody awaits Christmas. This is the only time of the year when we can feel a different joyous feeling – gifts, holidays and quality time with family and friends. Christmas is a perfect season for us to temporarily forget about all the troubles in life and have fun.
Apart from Christmas shopping, left and right Christmas parties and a sumptuous Christmas Eve dinner, there are other ways on how to feel more the spirit of Christmas.
Here are the old and new Christmas ways that make our Christmas celebration very special:
The objects related to Christmas strengthen the Christmas vibe. For us to feel more of the joyous season, we have to surround our home with Christmas decorations. This includes Christmas tree, snowman, reindeer, candy canes, stockings and Santa Claus figures, among others.
Apart from Christmas decorations, we need to hear Christmas songs. Music gets in our soul. There is a distinct feeling when we hear the jingle bells, the sound of the sleigh, and Santa’s laugh. The jubilant and merry rhythm of Christmas music makes our hearts jump.
In case you want more than hearing Christmas songs, you can actually sing it yourself. Gather your friends and families and carol door-to-door in your neighborhood. It is a fun way of bonding together, plus you get to enjoy the Christmas freebies from homes.
Reminisce the wonderful times you spent Christmas during the past years. Remember the good feeling and the excitement you experience whenever Christmas comes. Share with your friends the unforgettable memories and moments. That’ll make you want Christmas more.
Feed the Birds
Another common activity during the Yuletide season is feeding the birds. People will put strings of popcorn, seeds, grains and bread crumbs on top of Christmas trees so that the birds can feed on them. This is a practice that shows fervent love and care for animals.
Reach Out To The Poor
The true essence of Christmas is sharing. Santa Claus gives free gifts to everyone. In Christians, Jesus Christ saved both the believers and non-believers from sins and death. To celebrate Christmas meaningfully, we need to reach out to the poor. There are many ways in which we can help others. You can visit orphanages, give food to street children, donate used books and clothes, and much more.
Apart from Christmas Eve family dinner, you can also uniquely celebrate Christmas through a wonderful breakfast. On the 25th, serve Christmas breakfast to the family. It is a good way to start the Christmas morning before you part ways for your respective Christmas parties and celebrations.
Of course, Christmas will never be Christmas without the exchange of gifts. People love to receive gifts, but in this period of time, you have to give first before you can receive. The spirit of sharing is being done through the exchange of gifts. This is the time when you take effort, money and time to look for the perfect gift for your receiver. This also gives a thrilling feeling of excitement.
