We are hearing Christmas songs and we are not hallucinating for its real! It’s Christmas time once again and they say that this is the time when people are so warmth and very considerate when inside the malls doing shopping for gifts, new things and everything they can buy in their salary bonus. Outside the road is different, this is the season when people are turning from an innocent sheep to a monstrous fire breathing dragon when caught in the middle of turtle pace moving traffic. And were still a hundred and thirteen days more to the greatest birth of our Saviour. Everybody has his or her own way of preparation in mind and we are pretty sure it’s all effective isn’t it? Been there for more than 5 years doing it and i find it handy some will tell you that. Listen to them as it might more apt to your needs in terms of preparation for the holidays. i too has several tried and tested means to have a successful season of the year. Let’s start with decorating your place then planning the food to serve and the gifts to share limiting it to just three basic important things we usually do wherever your place may be and whoever you intend to celebrate it come 25th of December 2016.
On decorations, you got a load of it inside your storage room, how old are you? as your age will tell you how packed your box of decors might be. Some are doing it with their own set of motifs, i want a blue and red thing to look like patriotic, no i want that yellow and green to put memoirs with the past olympic and i want it red and green as that is the real colors of the holidays. They’re all correct, see nobody gets wrong in this blog site, you are all correct i promise you. Color’s differs in a way the season affects the holiday, it might be summer in downunder Australia while it’s freezing cold in the US. Get the idea, it might a white christmas in america due to snow and vibrancy covers the summer of the others. Locally we have a variety of motifs just by visiting places from north to south. City are dressed to the occasions giving you the feeling of season while embracing the local culture you are visiting. The great thing about the season is that everybody is entitled to celebrate it in whatever modest way we can have it. People who flock the street to ask for a little change while you are sitting in an hour traffic mess should be seen as a culture not a menace for our indigent brothers, it is one of their way to get prepared for the most important event of the calendar year. They too are celebrating as i kept on saying people are created equal, we all born without any clothes on isn’t it? That makes the equality divine. So the next time you encounter indigent people across your path, be his or her present by respecting the culture they have, perhaps that loose change could do no damage onto your daily budget and that means a lot to them, hand it and say Merry Christmas to you.
On food preparations, the budget always dictate the diet. Agree or disagree? You are the best provider in the house and you always wanted the best for every member of the clan in terms of food. Have you think about this? Does serving the most expensive or the oiliest food on the table will make them happy? Maybe a fast food fried chicken is more than enough to make the family happy? Try to ask your 5 year old son and he will give the truest sense of how kids see Christmas season foods must be. On the contrary try to ask your Mother or Grandma and they’ll surely give you the simplest food they wanna have even during the media noche. These alone is a good start to think of what food do really your family is looking forward to and you can avoid the supermarkets that filled till the aisle you’ve never reach during your normal grocery days. People tend to overspend during holidays because they failed to plan properly. Maybe limiting the food to a few courses will do and free up your fridge of excessive salads or ended up throwing those rotten fruits you failed to eat as everybody got full with that sumptuous fettuccine ala caramba. I suggest you try to look at how hotels or restaurants arranged and presented their menus and you’ll notice the chronology of digestive suggestion that will make you enjoy the food they’re serving or offering to its customers. Entiendes? no, go try to take a look. That will give you the idea of how a media noche should’ve been prepared and presented moderately. The food is the medium to celebrate the season as a whole family nothing more nothing less.
Gifts of all types are all over places, everywhere literally speaking. How do you like to buy some of the best sauce we have that you just put on your food Madam? This is a perfect gift for your mother in law Madam, without even asking if the mother in law is still alive. cheerfully offered by the waitress in one of your dinner date with Cumpadre. Laughters can be found while searching for that very unique out of this world idea you’re thinking about that even you doesn’t know if it exist. I suggest you go for the gifts that can be practical and be useful to the receiver. As simple as that. You don’t wanna caught by your husband as where and how were you able to buy that sauce that is only available in one of the most expensive hotel restaurant isn’t it?
To be perfectly ready for the coming holidays? just stay simple in everything besides it’s the inner soul that requires to be feed, gifted with good deeds and be the most decorated person by respecting the culture of everyone and sharing the most during this season of giving.
