Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:14 December 2015 

Christmas is a joyous time of year and it is the perfect time to strengthen the bond with friends and family. No matter what your religion is, the holiday season is celebrated all over the world. Let us take a closer look at Christmas and find out why it is so important to celebrate. 

Where Did Christmas Come From?

Even though the origin of Christmas has been disputed by many historians, Christmas is still considered as the birth of Jesus Christ. It was originally a religious celebration, which spread to millions of people all across the world. 

Depending on your location in the world, Christmas is usually accompanied by a number of celebrations before Christmas takes place. Good examples of such celebrations are advent and octave of Christmas.

Not everyone celebrates Christmas in the same way, considering the fact that the religious beliefs of people can vary. Instead of Christmas, many people refer to this time of year as the holiday season. However, no matter how you call this joyous time of the year, it is one of the most favourite celebrations for people all over the world.

How Can I Make This Christmas Unforgettable?

Planning a great Christmas celebration for your friends and family? Take advantage of our Christmas tips below to make your Christmas celebration unforgettable and amazing!

The first thing that makes a Christmas celebration great is the build-up. Unfortunately, this is something that many people tend to forget when they are planning their Christmas party or Christmas celebration. 

In order to make your guests feel excited for your Christmas party, we recommend creating an official invitation. To get the maximum effect from this invitation, ensure that the invitation has a nice Christmas theme. You can also add a nice little gift to the invitation, giving your guests a little hint of things to come.

A Christmas party does not always have to be trademarked by alcohol and an expensive turkey dinner, because you can also organise a movie night everyone is bound to enjoy. Ask your guests to bring their favourite Christmas movie and then watch each movie with all your guests on Christmas Eve.

Making Christmas dinner can be incredibly stressful, so instead of stressing yourself out cooking turkey, why not get a takeaway during your Christmas movie night? A good pizza may not be as fancy as a good turkey, but it sure takes the stress away from you. Alternatively, you can also hire a caterer to take care of dinner for you.

Many people organising a Christmas party will also have to entertain the children of their guests. Unfortunately, children are left to their own devices during a Christmas party. If you want to create the best Christmas party ever, we recommend reading to the children from a classic Christmas story book. The children will certainly appreciate the effort and you will create a memory they will never forget.

Christmas can also be a great time for a friendly competition. If you organise a Christmas party this year, you could create some fun by announcing the best wrapped present competition. The most original present gets a prize, and you will have to make less effort to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. 

What Would You Recommend As Christmas Decorations?

Many people who want to draw some inspiration for their Christmas decorations will be showered with choices, this can lead to people going over their set Christmas budget. However, you do not have to spend masses amounts of money to transform your home into a Christmas wonderland. By using the decoration essentials we mentioned below, you can create a beautiful setting for your Christmas party without going over your budget.

A Christmas decoration that is absolutely essential is a Christmas tree. Most people have a Christmas tree they use every year, so you may not even have to spend any money to get a Christmas tree. However, if you do need to buy a Christmas tree, there are several cost-effective options that still look amazing. Instead of going for a real Christmas tree and deal with the mess afterwards, why not go for a plastic Christmas tree that looks just as real. You can even get Christmas trees that are already decorated, saving you money on tinsel and ornaments.

Other essential Christmas decorations are tinsel, ornaments and other things to decorate your tree or the walls of your home, should you need them for your current Christmas tree. However, there is another thing that can invoke the Christmas spirit and it does not cost a lot – scented candles. 

A few scented candles in your home can create a good atmosphere. Of course, you will have to pick a scent that matches the Christmas season. Good scented candles for the Christmas season are vanilla, orange, apple and sweet mint.

The fragrance of scented candles are not the only thing that create a holiday season atmosphere, because the dim light of a candle can certainly contribute to the cosiness of your Christmas party. However, if there are children present at the party, we recommend placing the candles higher up so children cannot reach them.

Last but not least, we also recommend presenting your Christmas presents in a beautiful way. Seeing Christmas presents tends to set the right mood, so either place them under your Christmas tree or get a dedicated Santa sack for the mantelpiece.
