Christmas is one of the most anticipated times of the year, perfect for sharing with family and friends and enjoy all the traditions of these dates moment. But vary from time to time is not bad if what we want is to have fun, so we invite you to celebrate Christmas in an original way, in a traditional meeting with some different elements for you to spend a happy and with different time your loved ones. Find out how in this article.
Always celebrate Christmas at home or the home of a family? As a great way to make a different encounter, and if the budget allows, is to celebrate Christmas out of town. Many families choose country houses in the mountains to change the air. In countries where it is summer during Christmas, some families choose to go to the beach to enjoy together. Choosing another place to celebrate Christmas is a good excuse for a trip and for spending a different Christmas Eve.
Maybe the budget does not fit an out-of-town getaway with your family, but they can make the little ones live a moment of fun and joy. We all know that Christmas really is and if there are children in your family more then you can create a simple contest between them. Buy cards of Christmas colors and explain to the little ones a couple of days before the Christmas Eve that day there will be a Christmas contest. Each one of them must draw a simple ornament for the tree (a cane, a doll of nine etc), the most beautiful win a prize. Of course, you will buy the same prize for everyone and you will tell them that after deliberating it is impossible to decide why it is more beautiful so everyone has won. Choose a simple detail at any cheap store and allow the little ones to have fun creating and painting on Christmas Eve.
Another option for an original Christmas and to encourage saving is an exchange of gifts instead of buying a gift for each of your family. But this is not any exchange. Each family member should buy a generic gift, a good gift, something that is to their liking and that they know they can please the most, for example a gift card for a relaxing day at a spa, a gift coupon at a good Clothing store, a simple iPod, the special edition of a book etc. Each one takes his gift and before they are distributed they put all the names in a bag and they are taking out the papers. First, they will be two names, so he gives it to Mangano, then Mangano will give to the next name that comes out and so on. The most fun of this exchange is that after the gifts are open their new owners can change it for another if both people agree: a fairly interactive Christmas breakdown.
Without losing the tradition of the typical dishes of your country or region, you can make aperitifs that are different and original, for example making thematic tickets of a country: Mexican nachos with shots of tequila, an Italian antipasto accompanied by a wine of The region etc. If you have guests of various nationalities you can honor them with something to bite from their countries, you can invite your family to bring something typical of the region to which they belong so that at the level of gastronomy have options for fun.
There are other original and perfect ideas for little ones such as making Christmas trees with recycled materials, or ornaments for the tree also recycled, a good way to promote eco also culture during this time of year materials.Make a list of joyful and fun music for all generations of family that meets with you at Christmas, have them dance, sing, remember and have a good time on Christmas Eve. To have fun there is nothing better than to celebrate Christmas in an original way.
