HOW TO SPEND THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY IN 2021

Christmas is a one day celebration about the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a day event that is globally celebrated mostly by the Christians. In some countries, the celebration usually begins 1st December and ends 31st December. While in some countries the celebration is only done that day 25th December. People celebrate Christmas Day in many ways. Many people decorate their homes, visit family or friends and exchange gifts. … Some groups arrange meals, shelter or charitable projects for people without a home or with very little money. It’s obvious that the pandemic still affected this year but not like last year. Many people couldn’t go home because of that and that is why this post will be very helpful to people spending the Christmas holiday alone and those spending it with family.

How to spend the Christmas holiday in 2021?

1. Travel home to Family

Christmas is a time that most people have to spend quality time with their family. The spirit of Christmas is so great and much fun when you spend it with the ones you love. While you are with your family, you can do so many things together like: playing a Christmas game, discussing about life, creating new memories that will stay with you till you meet with them again. If you are spending the Christmas alone, you can visit friends that are close to you or you can visit your colleague and try to do the aforementioned.

2. Be a charitable person this Christmas

Yes! Be a charitable person this Christmas, by participating in charity fundraising events. Visiting the orphanage home. Telling and convincing people to visit the orphanage home. Volunteering in places that needs help. Visiting those old people near you or even those far from you and help them do stuffs like: cooking for them, fetching firewood, or filling their gas cooker or buying the kerosene, buying them gifts and leaving them with cash that will sustain them for a long time. You can decide to make a change by visiting the prison. Visit those in the hospital and spend a day or an hour with them.

3. Adopt a new cultural celebration

Since you have known yourself, spending the Christmas has always been the same routine for you. This Christmas holiday should be different. Dig up some old family culture and pick one and add to the already existing one. How did your grandparents or great grandparents spend their Christmas? What do your aunties and uncles do when they come back home for Christmas? These are some of the questions that will help you dig out some of the cultures.

4. Watch Christmas movies

Watching Christmas movies will surely help you be in the mood for Christmas. You will not only watch to enjoy yourself, but you will acquire more knowledge. There are Christmas movies that tells you how and why the Christmas celebration started, these type of movies will help you in knowing how to better celebrate.

5. Go Caroling

You can go and watch a Christmas carol. Or you do that yourself. Put on a nice dress, pick a musical instrument or two, call a friend or your sibling or colleague whichever is around you, and start singing Christmas carol. You can first start singing to yourselves before going to your family, then the neighbors.

SPENDING CHRISTMAS ALONE?

You couldn’t go home because of tight schedules? Well let me help you with some suggestions on how you can make this Christmas count. You can choose from the 5 above, the ones you can do and then add these ones to them.

1. Listen to Christmas songs

You can make a playlist of your favorite songs and then add some Christmas songs to them. Make sure to learn the lyrics well, so you will be able to know what you are singing and not biting your tongue. Have you heard? That music is a scientifically-proven way to boost your mood. This happens because of the release of neurotransmitter, like dopamine (which regulates pleasure) and serotonins (which contributes to well-being and happiness).

2. Read books

Reading books and sipping either coffee or juice, in your Christmas or normal pajamas will make much sense. Make sure you stay close to the window, so that if you read a little, you can look out to see the outside views easily.

3. Watch parade

Go out there and watch the colorful and beautiful Christmas parade. If there is no parade around your area, you can go outside, look for a spot, seat down and watch how people are dressed. Or surf the internet, go through either instagram or Facebook you will definitely see one. Christmas dressing is usually different, which makes it very lovely to watch what others are wearing.

4. Create new memories

After reminiscing, you can create new memories by doing those things you have always wanted to do but too afraid to do them. Now is the time to do them.

CONCLUSION

Christmas holiday is a holiday that should be spent with happiness on your face always. It’s not a time to be sad or mourn or get angry. It’s a time to forgive and do away with every grudges. It’s also a time you make peace with yourself and others around you; especially those who offended you. Knowing how to spend your Christmas will make it easier, which is what I have done already. With the above lists, anyone can have a fun filled Christmas, alone or not.

I hope this post was helpful to you. I would love to hear the ones you will try out this Christmas.
