Despite the havoc that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us, we still have one thing to look forward to - the holiday season (even though it looks like we'll be spending it indoors. Here are five simple ways to celebrate Christmas this year.
1. Buy new Christmas lights for the house.
House decorations are one of the most exciting parts of celebrating the holiday season. Step up the celebration this year by purchasing twinkly pro lights by Christmas Designers. Christmas Designers is a store that sells all the Christmas decorations and holiday lights that you could ever need to dazzle up your home. They have the best decorations, including twinkle lights, LED lights, an impressive range of bulbs, twinkly devices, smart light strings, and a vast collection of other essential lighting effects. May all of your Christmases be as bright as these stunning new twinkly pro-RGB lights.
2. Deck the halls with advent candles.
Nothing is better than having some lovely candles to light up the mood.
Cokesbury is a retail store (branching from the United Methodist Publishing House) that sells products geared toward many independent churches and denominations. One of their popular products is their advent candles; during the advent season, candles and wreaths symbolize different meanings relating to Christ. There are several advent candles to pick up for the Christmas season, including the white candle, the purple candle, the Christ candle, the third candle, the fifth candle, and the small red candles. Advent tradition plays a huge role in the Catholic religion; to learn more about advent calendars, visit Mercy Home.
3. Have a Christmas movie marathon.
You can imagine the scene now. Mugs of hot chocolate, plenty of comfortable blankets, and hours of your favorite Christmas movies playing. Sounds delightful, doesn't it?
One of the best things about celebrating the holiday season is getting to kick back, relax, and spend uninterrupted time with the ones you love. Hosting a movie marathon with your loved ones is a great way to spend an evening (or whole day if you're up to it) while on a Christmas break. Here are a couple of movies that we recommend including in your line-up:
- A Christmas Story
- Home Alone (the first and second in the series are our favorites!)
- The Polar Express
- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
4. Decorate the Christmas tree as a family.
This is a long-standing tradition in many families. Simple and joyful, decorating the Christmas tree is a fun way to spend time with your family while exercising your creativity. Here are a few steps for sprucing up your Christmas tree:
- Pick out your dream tree. Whether you go hunting for a live one or you pick up a pretty good look-a-like, finding the perfect tree is the foundation of dressing it up.
- Pull out your collection of decorations. It's always fun to find those handmade ornaments or pieces of decoration that have been in the family for years. If you're looking to freshen up the supply this year, visit Christmas Designers to pick up some new favorites.
- Name your tree. Okay, this may sound a little silly, but consider your tree to be a part of your family. Give it a name to refer to it lovingly over the holiday seasons.
5. Share your gratitude with one another.
There is so much to be grateful for, especially during the holiday season. To have a safe and comforting space where you can fellowship and hold a celebration with your loved ones is a huge blessing that others may not experience. It would be a sweet and meaningful idea for you and your family and friends to create lists of gratitude to share with one another. It can be from past Christmases, or you can make it into a wish list of what you look forward to for next Christmas. Either way, it helps keeps the spirit of gratitude alive during the holiday season.
