The Philippines is known for having the longest Christmas season in the world. What’s more heartwarming is that we are recognized for keeping the Christmas spirit alive even in the middle of uncertainties. I believe that no matter how hard our situation is now, we just couldn’t take away the meaning and importance of the Christmas season.
The dazzling and twinkling lights, joyous and echoing Christmas carol and songs, the delicious aroma of puto bumbong and bibingka, the smiles of children on the streets and the essence of gift-giving encapsulate the Filipino Christmas tradition.
Filipinos have an unbreakable bond. We always choose to come home and spend the holidays together with our family. Christmas with the whole family is one of our lives’ great joys. The holiday serves as an important opportunity to reunite and catch up with some relatives and friends.
Amid the pandemic, it might be quite challenging to celebrate the way we used to. But, who says we need to leave our homes to celebrate the season? There are many ways to enjoy the holidays inside your house.
As the popular song goes, “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” So, here are some Christmas decoration ideas and celebration tips to make holidays at home even more special and memorable.
Decorate home together
Nothing’s more enjoyable than decorating your home and filling up every room with Christmas decors to set the whole family’s holiday mood.
Imagine glancing at your family, feeling their excitement and joy while decorating the Christmas tree together, listening to Christmas songs, laughing, singing, and enjoying each other’s company.
So, it’s time to put it all on full display and dress up your Christmas tree with lights, colorful bells, socks, and poinsettia. Go for a more surprising look and place your Santa figurine collections on the center table. Spruce up your stairways and door frame with garlands. Scatter candles and lanterns to show off the holiday spirit and ambiance throughout the room. Don’t forget to hang wreaths at the door for good cheer. Home interiors offer an extensive collection of Christmas decorations.
Cook favorite meals together
Christmas family dinner or Noche Buena is treated as a glorious tradition. It involves serving your family’s all-time favorite dishes.
Before the Christmas spirit hits full swing, plan your Christmas menu. To make cooking together more enjoyable, organize and prepare your kitchen for the occasion.
Lacking kitchen tools and essentials could drop the merry-jolly and exciting spirit while preparing food. Ensure that your kitchen is ready for all the works this holiday. You need to have durable kitchen appliances to create more delectable dishes for your family. Hamden kitchen appliances are your ideal partner for easy and hassle-free cooking.
Your dining table should be as impressive as the menu. Getting Christmas table decoration and dinnerware could make your family’s feast more memorable. Think of a holiday motif to make the dining area feel nice and cozy.
Adorn your table wonderfully with garlands, ornaments, and special candlesticks. For an extra touch, arrange plates, glass, linens, and table napkins creatively. It’s an opportunity to make your dining room more welcoming. Find all these Christmas table decorations and dinnerware setup with Heim Home Interiors and uniquely transform your dining area.
