Tone down hectic preparations by setting aside time to ease your Christmas spirit and rejoice the season’s essence. Get into the Christmas mood.
- DEMONSTRATE ARTFUL CARDS – Get all your Christmas cards all stacked up on the table. Let your tables clutter in a psychedelic fashion with these cards by turning them into the decor. You can arrange the medium and large hole punches to create paper circles on a wreath form made of wood. Use ribbons and pom-poms to decorate these and to have them stuck in the right place using an adhesive.
- KEEP A HOLIDAY SCRAPBOOK– Before Thanksgiving, you a must get a scrapbook for yourself. There is a whole new variety available in the market. Tuck in a few photos or cards as the time progresses and collect some written notes about the foods you prepared, the presents that were gifted, and the traditions that were followed during the season of festival.
- DOUGH AS ART – with the use of a store-bought dough shave cooking prep time and ask your family to come over and enjoy a becoming cookie-decorating party.

- WRAPPING PAPER CAN BE MADE BY CHILDREN – Ask from any kid how much fun it is to wrap the gifts and they will tell you it is as much fun as the gift itself is. Children are experts at this or we can call them better than the expert creative designs available in the market.
- REJOICE– Singing Christmas songs along with the family and friends can give leave you with a deep satisfaction as it imparts the sense of community.

- REMEMBER –This day can be a source of reminiscence for the dear ones that are no longer in your contact. Instead of fuming about what you don’t have, better focus on what made them a unique part of your life. You may have a flashback of memories and the golden time spent with them. Remember them and celebrate the day without feeling nostalgic. Rather, make the day unique by cherishing those times and the people.
- REST – you may feel like you are being worn down because of the shopping, baking, wrapping, and entertaining. All these things can wait so you must take proper rest so as to actually enjoy the festival.
- DREAM – Play with the snowflakes. Slow down, stop and sit on Santa’s lap and listen for reindeer hooves just like you used to do those crazy things when you were a child. This is a way to relive your childhood again.
- CONNECT– you must bundle up your family as you will be heading outdoors at certain times to a holiday festival .Therefore; pack your whole stuff in place.

- REACH OUT TO OLD FRIENDS-Friends are family because you need not be related to people to call them your family. So, this year manage some time out of your busy schedule to keep in touch with a friend whom you’ve been trying to meet but somehow it skipped your mind. Approach them and make the meeting special by writing out letters or buy them stationery.
