The festive season is around the corner, and Christmas celebrations will once again fill the whole world with joy and jubilation. Illuminated and decorated pine trees, Santa Claus with that proverbial bag of gifts, and people making a beeline to supermarket stores – these are just a few of several usual scenarios that we will witness in the coming days.
So how are you planning to celebrate this Christmas?
Since the fascination for enjoying the Christmas holidays resides deep in your heart this year, unleash your fascination by using so many different ways to celebrate this century-old festivity. It is perhaps the right time to find creative and innovative ways to make this Christmas an extraordinary one.
Here are some amazing ways of celebrating Christmas:
1. Spread the message of joy and peace
Very few global festivities like Christmas give you an opportunity to bring sunshine to the lives of those who are less fortunate. Through videos and podcasts on the internet, you can reach out to the world community and spread the message of joy and peace. You can make this Christmas a reason to bring happiness to the lives of orphanage children or special kids.
2. Give printable Christmas cards
You sure are so excited to catch up with your friends and family and want to have a good time this festive season. It would be a really nice feeling to give your loved ones attractive printable Christmas cards to create unforgettable memories. Just hang around with them, go on vacation together, or take sunbathe on sandy beaches. This is the perfect time to get up, close, and personal with your special someone as well.
3. Use decorations to tell about the life of Christ
The life of Christ was one of love and sacrifice for the well-being of others. In today’s perspective, it is more than necessary to talk about Christ’s life when we are witnessing so many crimes being committed around us. Although Christmas signifies the birth of Jesus, you can use decorations to show the zest of his life on earth. You can use artwork to narrate the events from the life of Jesus.
4. Go green
Going green is an eco-friendly way of celebrating the festival. Since climate change is one of the hottest contemporary issues globally, buying a real tree for decoration is certainly not a greener option. Just think if everyone starts using a real living tree for Christmas, how many trees will be cut down across the world? Use artificial trees instead, or you can grow your own real trees. You can also give eco-friendly gifts such as special varieties of plants or saplings.
5. Make a DIY Christmas tree costume
If we are talking about creativity and innovativeness, then you have many options to use your imagination. You can do many things for yourself while sitting at home; for example, a DIY Christmas tree costume will be a unique piece of art.
You have to buy a few pieces of synthetic grass and some light bulbs from the supermarket. Make a suit from the grass, put light bulbs in different places, and connect them through wires. Now put the dress on and light bulbs with caution, and you are a walking Christmas tree.
6. Exquisite food
The celebration of the Christmas holidays cannot be completed without a gourmet delight. To make your Christmas feasting special, you can pick a few traditions along with foods from different cultures. For example, a traditional Christmas meal includes ham or turkey.
You can mix it with seafood along with green vegetables and salads. You can use other ideas in your Christmas kitchen including Bacon Potatoes au Gratin, salt-roasted lollipop lamb chops, Shrimp Scampi with Linguine, Holiday Duck with Fig Glaze, and Cornbread Stuffing.
7. Volunteer for bringing a change around
Compassion and kindness is the true lesson that one can learn from Christmas. You can encourage your near and dear ones to donate cash and clothes to poor people. Why not get your family members to volunteer at a local shelter or hospital during the Christmas holidays?
This will surely go down as the most unique and incredible Christmas celebration in your life so far. As a matter of fact, you don’t know what it means for those in dire need.
Christmas will come and go every year, but what difference are you making at your end? How unique and different is your disposition towards the spirit of Christmas? What new ideas are you using this festive season to bring a change around you? The above-mentioned tips will surely help you glance into this thought.
