Start off by making a list of friends and family relatives who do not live close by. Once you have the list, move out and start buying cards for everyone on the list. You must write nice Christmas and New Year messages for all these relatives and then send it to them through mail.
Once you have wished all your family relatives and friends, it is time for you to start your own personal celebrations. Get yourself a nice, live/artificial Christmas tree and start decorating it with different ornaments and lights. This will take a lot of your time since customizing the Christmas tree can be time consuming.
Now you must hang mistletoe on your doorway. This small, scented sprig comes along with a small tradition. If two people are standing under the mistletoe, they must kiss each other.
Once you have decorated the tree, it is time for you to decorate your house. Go outside and start placing lights and other decorations. You can place lights on the shrubs and trees.
Since you have completed the decorations, it is time for you to buy gifts for the relatives and friends who do live nearby. Put these gifts right under the Christmas tree.
Always remember to hang stocking from your mantel. It is said that Santa always leaves little items whenever he visits.
Right before the Christmas, make your little children write down a wish list so you can provide them with what they really need.
Start playing Christmas music in your house just so that you can get into the holiday spirit. There are several popular choices when it comes down to Christmas music. Two of the most popular ones include the likes of “Silent Night” and “Deck the hall”.
Once you have completed all these steps, it is time for you to treat yourself and your relatives. Invite them over and prepare a delicious feast. You can make turkey, ham, stuffing, vegetables, mince pie, etc. You can include other favourite recipes and you may ask others if they want you to make something special.
Do not forget to visit the church on the Christmas Eve.
