Human beings have an affinity to be unique and get involved in activities that are different from usual. Doing the same thing repeatedly does not make any cherishable memories or events. How about doing something different this Christmas away from the usual traditions?
The following are some of the activities you can try out to make the upcoming Christmas completely different and more meaningful. We can bet that instead of regretting, you will adopt this different way of celebrating Christmas for years to come.
1. Invite A Poor Family
A celebration is all about being happy and spreading happiness. There is no better way of being ecstatic than by making others happy. Make this Christmas a memorable one for you and for a poor family. Invite them for lunch or dinner and if possible, gift them items as per your budget.
2. Go On A Vacation
Most of the people prefer to stay at home during Christmas. In the meantime, you can visit your dream destination with your family and cherish the memories for the rest of your life for doing something non-traditional during X-mas.
3. Adapt To A Different Culture
You can break the barrier of the cultural way Christmas is celebrated in your place by adapting celebration culture from another country. Christmas celebration varies a great deal from place to place and hence choose the one your family is comfortable with and be different from others in a pleasant way.
4. DIY Gift Exchange
Gift exchange is a usual tradition of Christmas, and everyone loves receiving gifts. The true meaning of giving gifts changes when you make the gifts yourself. Everyone will appreciate your personal touches and do whatever you can within your means to surprise everyone pleasantly.
5. Visit An Orphanage
You should give one of the most valuable days of your life to the orphans because when you will look back, you will really pat yourself on the back for doing something right in life. It would be even better if you spend the day with them along with your family.
6. Family Activity
The real happiness lies in family activities because you get close to one another like never before. It could be baking dishes, decorating the house, going to a theme park, having a lunch or dinner in your favorite restaurant, watching a movie, fishing, playing outdoor or indoor games, reading the Bible together, and likewise.
7. Settle A Grudge
Christmas is the best time to forgive others and settle grudges with all your enemies. You may not become friends again, but at least you will be in good terms with the other persons. The best way to do that is by giving them a gift.
8. Decorate The Tree Differently
Decorate the Christmas tree with all the good memories and good deeds of you and your family members. Later on, you can play a game of guess which one belongs to whom.
9. Cook For Street Kids
If you are fond of cooking, you should cook something good and distribute them to the street kids that you will find in plenty during the occasion.
10. Gift A Thought
ALong with usual gifts, you should gift thoughts so that the person ponders on it to improve in life. It could be healthy criticise, points for improvement or simply how you perceive the person's character.
If you have such unique plans to make this Christmas meaningful, do share them with others.
