Christmas is a “Holiday season” of happiness and love and the best way is to celebrate it with your friends and family. Many families make preparations ahead of Christmas and eagerly wait for the festival day. It is full of tradition that makes the Christmas special. Without sipping of hot chocolate it makes no sense. This Christmas season is the best time of the year. Decorating gingerbread houses and new calendars advent are the must do things. Winter season makes Christmas special, celebrate it with your family members as “a Christmas reunion”. Having festival drinks, delicious treats and engaging in the festival game will make your Christmas day complete.
Here is the list of things you should do with your family:
- Make a family play:
While there will many shows going on outside, try to perform a family plan which brings you closer. If not at least try to play music in your local church along with your family or group of friends. Arrange special costumes and a good set will add beauty to your play which lasts for a lifetime.
- Family get-together:
Most families try to gather to celebrate on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. This informal meeting is called gathering. Often, people stay away from their families, so it might not be possible to be with their family on Christmas. In this case, people will gather with friends for special dinners or Christmas parties. Every family follows different customs and traditions depending on their ethics and values.
- Gift giving and gift exchange:
Many people celebrate Christmas by giving gifts to friends, family members, or their coworkers. This is called a gift exchange. There are a number of special words related to gifts, and some types of gift exchanges. First of all, people usually wrap the gifts they give, which means they put decorative paper wrapping around the gift. They might also put a gift in a gift bag. Then, when people exchange gifts, they open them to see what’s inside.
Some families and offices may have special gift exchanges. Because it is expensive to buy gifts for all your friends or colleagues, many groups exchange gifts called the secret Santa. For the secret Santa, everyone takes the name of someone else in the group and buys gifts for that one person.
The word charity can be used to describe any action that helps people who really need help – such as homeless people or people without money for food. One of the most enjoyable moments in a year is this “Holiday season“.
For example, some people may volunteer to make food at a homeless shelter. Others may donate gifts to children from poor families.
In general, the holiday season is a time to help others, so you might see signs like “keep the spirit of life throughout the year”. The idea is that we have to help others throughout the year, and not just for a month and at the end of the year.
