How time does fly when you’re having fun. The summer is over and autumn will be upon us in no time. Then without being noticed, the first snowflake falls from the winter sky and then it’s Christmas again, a hectic time for most of us where parties, gifts, home decorations, and a lot of merry things are happening all at once.
Others, possibly including your spinster second cousin and the widow living across the street, are wise enough to plan ahead. So if you want your Christmas to be as stress-free as possible then you better get a pen, a piece of paper, and write down your list of Christmas essentials to remember.
We all look forward to the Yuletide season not only for the brief respite it gives us from the pressures and demands of work but also it is one of the best times to show our appreciation to our loved ones and everyone else who have made life more exciting and spectacular.
It is also a wonderful time to make use of your creativity to personally design and craft the presents and cards you will send out to your family, friends, and colleagues. You also have the house and the tree to decorate, the menu for the Christmas dinner to prepare, and the parties you will need to be ready for. It may just be as hectic as your ordinary working day but as sure as the sky is blue, you will enjoy the pressure of your Christmas schedule a million times better.
Anyways, back to business, get your pen and paper ready. What are your Christmas essentials?
1. Christmas cards and presents - Who does not love getting presents, even a simple Christmas card? Not you, I suppose. We are touched even by the customary card from friends simply because they remembered you and appreciated you for being a part of their lives. So make it a point to always personalize your gifts with a heartfelt note.
2. Christmas tree - The season will not be complete without a fir, a spruce or a pine with lights, Christmas balls, angels, and other decorations hanging from the tree. To many, it is a noble tradition and a family affair to dress up the tree for Christmas. Many a beautiful memory is recalled when one mentions Christmas tree.
3. Home decorations for Christmas - If you have a Christmas tree, it is an understatement to say that your home is completely adorned for the Yuletide season. The wreath on the front door, the stocking by the fireplace, and Christmas ornaments has to be strategically placed all over the house. So make sure your supplies are properly taken cared of after taking them down from the last season.
4. Menu for the Christmas dinner - If you are one of those families who gather for a quiet dinner during Christmas, then you are well acquainted with the frantic last minute drives to the grocery store for a pound more of flour and an additional quart of milk. After a delicious and satisfying dinner, the family would gather round the fireplace for some quality time together.
5. Christmas parties - Well, who doesn’t love to party in this season of giving? Company parties, family reunions, and get-together with friends, your calendar is surely filled up with party appointments. Then you’ll have to be prepared with the clothes, the presents for everyone else attending, and other little details you’ll likely forget until the last minute.
These are just the main ideas. You have to break them down to their components if you want your Christmas celebration to be a complete turnaround of the wreck that it was last year.
