Tips for Christmas

I believe that many people truly intend to simplify their holidays each year, but because they wait until the last minute to take action, they inevitably fall into the same old habits. Because there is so much to do and so little time to do it all, these holiday-harried people end up going into "autopilot" and doing everything in the same old familiar way.

  • Christmas shop before the Christmas rush. Of all the things you can do to make Christmas easier for yourself, this is probably the biggest. Dont wait until the stores are crowded with thousands of holiday shoppers. Ask family members for their Christmas wish lists and get busy now.
  • Complete Christmas crafts. If your plan for Christmas gifting includes giving handmade gifts, plan to have them finished by Thanksgiving. Work at it in the evenings and each weekend until you are done.
  • Take care of time-consuming tasks. Writing Christmas cards, wrapping gifts, boxing up presents to mail why wait until December to attend to these time-consuming details? Knock them out now.
  • Fill your freezer. Each time you cook, double, or even quadruple the recipe and freeze the extra portions. During the hectic weeks before Christmas, having heat-and-eat meals in the freezer will be a lifesaver.
  • Plan volunteer activities now. Does your intention of doing some kind of community service always get lost in the holiday shuffle each year? Use the months prior to the holidays to investigate various opportunities for service and decide which ones you want to include in your Christmas season.
  • Plan holiday meals. Write out menus and shopping lists for dinners and get-togethers so you wonââ?‰?¢t have to think about it later. Use this time to experiment with any new recipes you plan to use. If you usually cook the entire holiday meal yourself, simplifying for you this year may mean asking for help. Decide what components of the meal youââ?‰?¢d like to delegate and begin recruiting helpers.
  • Decide what to delete. Which obligations add to your stress level each year? What activities would you rather forgo? Decide in advance how to diplomatically decline these engagements.
  • If your life constantly runs at high speed, you may feel overwhelmed when you read this list of ways to proactively simplify Christmas. Maybe you barely have time to complete the things you have to do each day, much less perform tasks for a holiday months away. If you are in that predicament, let me encourage you to take things one step at a time. Many of the tasks above can be done while you're doing something you would normally do anyway.
  • Your family has to eat every day, right? While cooking those meals, why not double your recipes while you're at it? It really doesnt take that much extra effort. Do you usually spend time in front of the TV each evening? If so, why not wrap gifts, address Christmas cards or work on crafts while watch your favorite shows? And dont forget to include a little Christmas shopping as you run your normal errands each week. Proactive simplification is manageable when you do a little at a time and combine Christmas preparations with tasks you must do anyway.

Christmas Poinsettias

When laymen speak of the "flowers" of Christmas poinsettias, what they're actually referring to are petal-like leaves known as "bracts." Christmas poinsettias do have flowers, but these green and yellow flowers are small -- and certainly not the feature for which one buys Christmas poinsettias!

Christmas Wreaths

When we think of Christmas, the idea of live Christmas wreaths come to mind. Wreaths symbolize life and hope. Ancient Romans used them as a sign of victory. The round shape of the wreath represents eternity and green represents the Church's color of hope and new life.

The tradition of using wreaths as Christmas decorations dates to 16th century Germany, where Lutherans created the Advent wreath. As with most Christmas decorations, the wreath was a symbol of Jesus' birth and God's grace.

There are types of wreaths which are decorated against a wall or hanged on doors. They are Advent wreaths, Living Wreaths etc. Advent wreaths: While Advent wreaths can still be found, they're less popular in today's more secular world. Living Wreaths: These Living Evergreen wreaths rank among the most popular styles.

How to make a Christmas Wreath:

The christmas Wreaths are made by evergreens, most notably pine boughs, which are the basis of many Christmas wreaths. For a fragrant wreath, make one with rosemary boughs. Add a simple red ribbon and you have the perfect beautiful red-green wreath. Read More..
