Preparing your Home for the Holidays

xmas ball

When Christmas season comes we not only think of getting presents for our loved ones but we also think of creative and colorful ways to make our homes radiate the feeling and ambiance of Christmas. We put up our Christmas tree as early as our hectic schedules allow for starters and fill it with lovely and bright Christmas trimmings. Apart from adding Christmas lights, we also put a number of presents wrapped, not only with colorful wrappers, but also with love and the warmest of thoughts, and under our tree.

And if that is not enough, we also put other Christmas decorations and ornaments like wreaths, lanterns, angels and Santa Claus display in different parts of our home. We also burn scented candles so the house would even smell like Christmas (which is also a very effective way of getting rid of unnecessary kitchen odor in the air). If we can afford it, am sure we will all get snow machines as well.

A special kind of gift

This holiday season try to make a different kind of gift to someone you don’t know. How about donating a portion of your hair to an organization that produces wig for cancer patients? This may sound new to you. But hair donation has been going on for years now. I’ve mention in my other blog…
