Decorate Your Home for 2021 Christmas:
1. Using a Christmas Tree
This tradition began with the ancient Christians. We associate the tree with the presence of God during the celebration. We cut a tree and bring it into the house. We put it in a tree stand to keep it upright. We then cover up the tree stand with a tree skirt.
2. The Ornaments to Go With It
A Christmas tree is not complete without ornaments like simple round balls of highly artistic designs. String lights complete the glimmer. It is under this tree that you put your wrapped gifts for the members of the family.
Make sure to make the children to believe it is Santa Claus who gifted them for being good throughout the year.
Nowadays, artificial trees are available. These make a lot of ecological sense. You buy a tree, put it in your house and use the ornaments that come with it. You can also add a red or a green tinsel to your tree. Snowflakes also add to the glow.
3. Lighting up the House
Brightness goes hand in hand with a happy mood. You are more likely excited in a well-lit room as compared to a dark room. Line the walls in and out of the house with string lights. Use portable lamps to hang here and there. Colored light bulbs that twinkle simultaneously are beautiful to look at just like those that glow alternately.
4. Scented Candles
Candles on beautiful stands will add to the lighting even as their sweet smells waft around the house etching beautiful memories.
5. Lawn Figures
Outside, you can put eight tiny reindeer. You can go ahead and display a statue of Santa Claus riding on a sleigh.
6. Wreath for the Front Door
Put a wreath on the front door. From a Christian perspective, its circular shape stands for eternity, an unending circle of life. The beauty of a synthetic wreath is that you can reuse it next Christmas.
7. Edible Decorations
Much as you can put candies in shiny wrappings on the Christmas tree, you can also hide them in the house to add to the fun of the day. Use well designed cookies to add color to the dining table.
8. Garland on a Ladder
Hang a garland made of olive branches on top of a ladder resting on the wall. Put red and white paper bells and ribbons on the garland. Use the ladder to hide treats and to display Christmas cards and messages from Santa to the children. You can also hang toys on the ladder, all to the amazement the children.
