Keeping traditions helps to keep the family bonds strong. No wonder, Christmas is believed to be the most family-oriented holiday. That is the day to get together and have a lovely dinner, share smiles and grow the family relations even stronger. Start making or keeping your family traditions well in advance before the holiday. Whether decorating a Christmas tree in your living room altogether or bringing in the elves and placing them on their “lawful” spots on the shelves of the wall unit and Christmas decorations on the occasional tables, wreathes and Rudolf, the deer, outside. Have you already decided on the dining table decorations for this year?
That is exactly the reason we decorate our houses, entryways and living rooms, and start getting ready for family dinners. The true joy and anticipation of the coming holiday, the spirit of celebration – all comes well before the day of the holiday. Keeping fairy-tale alive is even more important for the children. The holiday is not only about the presents, but about the light of miracle, the holiday brings. Make special small gifts here and there in the children room to surprise little ones with the small tokens, and show the way they are special for you, and encourage children to make surprises for Mom/Dad, Grandparents, remind them about cookies and milk for Santa on the day. Don’t forget to treat yourself and your guests as well. Make conversation islands in the living room (by placing few chairs around the small table) and leave there several small tokens or treats for the guests.
🌟Revalue The Year
Christmas and New Year Eve mark the end of the year, and it is just the right time to be grateful for all the good things that happened this year, and make plans for the coming year. Not only the goals about career, but also about self-development and simple values in life could be on the list (like spending more time with children and close friends, family members, dedicating more time to your health).
🌟Bring New To Your Life
Exactly the right time to bring new to your life and home is before Christmas. That is the reason many people start rearranging furniture and renovating the overall home décor before the winter holidays. When was the last time you have totally reorganized the furniture scheme, say, in your bedroom? May your bed be in totally different part of the room, and add some new furniture piece to your nest, like accent chair or bedroom vanity. Find some inspiring interior design and let yourself imagine and create your dream bedroom. Don’t forget to add some seasonal touches (bedding in traditional holiday colors, or Christmas-themed throws and pillows). And, undoubtedly, don’t forget to look for good inspiration at FurniturePick.
🌟Share Love And Kindness
It is just the time to share love and give due attention to the dreams of the closest ones. Why not to give something useful as a gift, that will last long and bring not only the up-to-the-minute joy, but be the useful present? Has your husband been dreaming of any new recliner, home office set, home bar set? Has your wife been dreaming of totally feminine loveseat, vanity area? Will your kids love to have the adventurous youth room? Just a couple of ideas for you. 😉 Don’t forget about the people who need your kindness and help, think about gifts to help others, get involved in charity, talk with the kids on donating toys, and teach them to share.
