You do not have time to shop around thinking about the choice of Christmas decorations most suited to your style? Probably you wish to spend as little time as possible on such activities but wiling to have the wonderful decorations and festive atmosphere prevailing in your home. Discover easy ways to make Christmas really beautiful and special.

First step is strictly about home decor. There is one major rule: interior decoration, Christmas decorations and ornaments should be kept in the Christmas colors (i.e. red, green, silver, gold, etc.). We can of course get rid of them after Christmas is over but while those few days our home might change into something like Santa Claus home.

We also can’t forget about Christmas tree – without it, there are no holidays. We should choose it smart remembering about the place that we are able to reserve for it, the money that we are willing to spend and some other details. Except Christmas tree we can also use some other green elements like for example wreaths, garlands (whether artificial or cut) that could be placed all over the house – mirrors, doors, balustrades.

Second step is to make a mood using carols, Christmas sounds and movies about Christmas. Listen to as many Christmas songs, carols and other songs that brings you in mind Christmas. While being at home try to encourage your family to keep the Christmas music on all over the time – it will help to keep both you and all the household in the festive mood. You can also wake up your children everyday by using Christmas bells and “Ho! Ho! Ho!” words. Also don’t miss any TV shows and movies that are on and refers to Christmas.

Third step might be called ‘WOW, Christmas cookies!’. Christmas time is so pleasure time of the year that we want to make everything perfect and such as our stomach should feel. For most of us Christmas, and also Christmas mood, is inseparable connected with good food and a lot of sweets, cookies. To make food a part of this mood you can decorate Christmas tree with colourful candies (let everyone who want to eat them), bake some small cookies for the guests entering your home or live a plate with delicious fruits for them in the corridor.

Fourth and last step is something like ‘All about rituals and family’. We have a lot of opportunities to make activities connected with Christmas our family rituals. For example we can make a family tradition from turning on the Christmas tree or also writing and sending postcards with family to friends and other relates. Don’t forget about those friends who are not going out and bring them a small Christmas tree, a present or just invite them home.

With those four elements we can make a Merry Christmas not just a wish but a reality. Merry Christmas for us, our family and friends thanks to Christmas mood that can be easily made.
