Our tips for celebrating Christmas

Every year the Christmas season and the associated stress come our way. Christmas is and will always be the celebration of love, but the stress of buying presents cannot be avoided. You rush through the aisles of all shops and try to find the best gift. But when it’s done, you’re overjoyed.

The ultimate goal: making children’s eyes shine

If you see the radiance in the eyes of the children and family members, then the stress was not in vain. But before buying a present comes the annual adorning and decorating of the apartment. In order to create the right mood, it is best to do this together with your loved ones. You bake cookies together, stroll leisurely through the Christmas market together and you can feel that unique feeling that only exists at Christmas time. You feel like you can embrace the whole world in anticipation of the festival. The whole family gets together, you make the big gift giving on Christmas Eve and eat together.

The first Christmas for two

There are many couples celebrating Christmas together for the first time this year. This is a very special Christmas for most of them. Emotions are particularly strong at this time of year. The cheerful colors, the smell of freshly baked cookies in the streets – the festively decorated alleys and shops. It’s the celebration of love. However, couples attach particular importance to choosing and decorating the Christmas tree together. This is lovingly decorated and every detail has to be right. But the most beautiful thing about this time is still the giving of presents on Christmas Eve. This is usually first done by couples alone, in intimate and above all romantic togetherness and then only with the family.

Celebrate Christmas with children

Anyone who has children knows exactly what is important at Christmas. The little ones look forward to this time all year round. Baking cookies with my mother, buying presents for relatives and siblings and visiting my grandparents on Christmas Eve. But what they look forward to the most is Santa Claus, or the Christ Child, who brings presents on December 24th. Parents always like to tell their children this story: A tall, fat man with a long white beard, a red pointed hat and a red suit. He comes flying on his sled, with 6 reindeer in front and brings the dear children the gifts they wanted. But children just as much love playing in the snow at Christmas time, building a snowmen, to make angels in the snow and, best of all , to go sledging with my father .


Christmas with animals

The whole family usually gets together at Christmas. But also for the pets is, because of doting dog lovers, this evening also like Christmas. Especially in the winter time, you can see dogs with jackets on the streets. After all, the little ones and also the big ones shouldn’t freeze in the snow or get really wet. Many pet owners also get their animals a gift for Christmas as a matter of course. A chewing bone for the dog, a scratching post for the cat, and a ladder for the bird’s cage. Even if some people who do not own pets think this is crazy, the pet is also part of the family and, above all, is always there. But Christmas can also mean stress for the little animals. Lots of people who are suddenly visiting but don’t otherwise live with the animal. In addition, animals notice the stress that people have on Christmas Eve, for example because of the food that should be finished on time. Take the time to cuddle or play with the animal every now and then to show it that you are always there for the animal, no matter how busy it is.

Are you alone at Christmas 2022?

For many people it is the celebration of love. But there are also people for whom Christmas can mean real hell. For example, for the elderly who no longer have a family and have to spend the Christmas season alone. These people “eat up” this time because they feel alone and really are. But there are also people who do not like Christmas for special reasons. They usually sit in undecorated apartments, focus on their work or hide from the television. But you shouldn’t do that, especially at Christmas time. Because Christmas means love, security and well-being – preferably with family or friends who are there for you during this time. And if that is not possible, then at least the well-tried tradition remains, on 24. December to go to church and watch the children’s nativity play. That puts a smile on everyone’s lips.

Nobody should be alone! This is especially true at Christmas time. Maybe everyone is wondering how to make other people happy. That means Christmas. charity!
