We often get worked up due to the Christmas decorations and buying Christmas gifts. We spend a lot of money behind decorations and other stuff; instead we could do few things better that would bring happiness to the lives of underprivileged. The true spirit of Christmas doesn’t lie in wasting money behind something unnecessary rather making a difference in someone’s life. Thus here we are with some Stress free Ideas of celebrating Christmas which would give us real joy and we would ourselves get pleased with it.
Adopt a Family for Holidays
Through adopt a family program you need to adopt a family in need and provide them with all the Holiday necessities and give them a Christmas to remember. You have to send toys, clothes, home decoration supplies, food certificates etc. So that they can spend a memorable Christmas. If it is possible you can also take them to dinner in a restaurant or invite them home for Christmas dinner, they will feel obliged with this gesture of you. You can gift them some necessary house appliances or pay for their tuition and other necessary things.
Cook a Meal for Others
Cook Christmas meal and give it to the family in need and the people staying on the road side. There might be so many people living on the streets who wouldn’t have any shelter and food. This hot home cooked meal at winter night will mean a whole world to them. At the end of the day even you will feel so good and satisfied and you will understand the true meaning of Christmas. You can also take a note of any family who is not doing well due to some financial problems and go there to treat them for main Christmas Eve meal. Make Christmas gift basket delivery to your loved ones and convey Christmas wishes.
Don’t Go Crazy with Christmas Decoration
There is no compulsion of decorating our homes for Christmas. We do so to bring the holiday vibes and festive fun, but this doesn’t mean you have to go over the limit to decorate the house and stress yourself. We go mad on decorating our home like North Pole, so take a step a back and stay contended with some simple and classy Christmas decoration. Don’t work your ass off for competing with your neighbors and friends and spending unnecessary money in decorating your house. We are not asking you to not decorate but just keep it simple.
Visit Nursing Home
There are so many people in the nursing home, orphanage and old age home who needs someone to talk to them and love them. So take one day out of your holidays and visit the nursing home. Spend your time with them and give them some love because most of the times they are all alone. And during Christmas and holidays they miss their families the most. Many of the patients never have the visitors and they often spend holidays alone. Nursing homes is really a sad sight especially during holidays. So brighten up their day by visiting them, giving them gifts and cards.
Think about Gifts and Memories
You can brainstorm and think about what kind of gifts you will admire for Christmas whether something materialistic or a practical gift that you would use for a long period of time. Gifts like season passes, concert tickets, books and other stuff are so much fun and even helpful. This doesn’t mean we are asking you not to buy toys for kids as Christmas gifts but they already have enough of them so why not give something useful. Send Xmas gifts online to your friends and family if you are holidaying in Christmas and wish them Merry Christmas.
Spread the smile and Enjoy the festive season with your loved ones with no debt and less stress.
