christmas-traditions

Christmas is the most favourite among all winter celebrations. It is a time when these beloved traditions are honored year after year. A time of hope for the future and reminiscing of past events. As we rejoice the birth of Christ, we are reminded of just how special the day truly is. Christmas is celebrated with full enthusiasm and zealous spirit in every part of the world where Christians live. Although traditions are different in different countries but every Christian celebrate it in its full bling.

The cold, wet and foggy weather of Christmas day is melted away by the warmth of traditions practiced in UK. Like all other Christian families around the world, people in UK also excitedly decorate their homes, cook special meals and buy Christmas presents for their loved ones. However, there are some peculiar Christmas traditions of UK which add in the Christmas’ beauty.

  • Letters

It is very common of school children to write letters to Santa Claus, they write all their wishes and tell Santa what they want as their Christmas present. But in England this tradition is taken a step further and these letters are burned in fireplace and ashes go up to the chimney, they have a concept that Santa can read the smoke.

  • Stockings

The tradition of hanging stockings for Santa is also slightly different in UK. Rather than hanging stockings above fireplace, the kids in UK hang their stockings on their bed, hopping they will be filled with Christmas gifts in the morning. How nice a surprise it would be to wake up and find your Christmas present right on your bed. 

  • Crown

If you dream of becoming a king, go to UK on Christmas. On Christmas day everyone is a king in UK! From adults to children, everyone wears a crown. The multicoloured crowns made up of paper and tissue are given the shape of original crown. Smiling people, wearing colourful crowns gives a very pleasing sight.

  • Crackers

Crackers are paper tubes, covered in foil, twisted at both ends. Concealing treasures and surprises these crackers are given the shape of large sweets. Each person crosses its arms and hold its own cracker in right hand and neighbour’s cracker in left hand. Next, you pop the cracker and all its content spill out. It usually holds a joke which is meant to be read at dinner time.

  • Mid-Day Dinner

Like Americans, UK residents also have a mid-day dinner on Christmas Day. The table is set with roast turkey, goose or chicken and trimmings. Brits love their Yorkshire pudding but it is not like a common pudding. It is a flaky biscuit with the center just waiting to hold the gravy. Traditional trifle is also one of the common dishes of Christmas dinner.

  • Royal Christmas Message

Every year on Christmas Day, Queen gives its speech on sharp 3 pm. People sit in front of their TVs with their families and listen to Queen’s Christmas speech. This tradition of giving a Christmas message from a member of royal family began in 1932 with George V.

  • Boxing Day

Boxing Day follows Christmas day and is a nationally recognized holiday in the UK, it is also called bank holiday. Originally it was the day when people gave presents to their servants but now this day has become one of the biggest shopping day. We can compare it with America’s Black Friday.

Technology lets us shop with a peace of mind by helping us in escaping the chaos of shopping malls in Christmas and New Year season. Some tech gadgets and apps proves a great companion for our shopping. Here I would be discussing all these gadgets and apps in details which make our shopping much easier.

Online Shopping

Starting with iBeacons I would like to focus on every single technology related thing which has made our shopping easier. These are small Bluetooth devices which send unique signals to people who have downloaded a shop’s mobile app.  iBeacons can be used to guide you in finding the exact outlet and points out the exact shelf where you can find the product you are looking for. It is ideal for navigating the crush. In busy shopping days like Christmas and New Year holidays, this device saves our time and takes us to the exact point where we can find our desired product, minimizing the need to peep into every single shop filled with hyper buyers, to find our item.

More and more retailers are trying to cut down cues with payment apps. Day by day more retailers are introducing apps which let customers make their orders, pay for their purchase and then just come to the desk for a couple of minutes, just to pick up their products. These tailored retailer payment apps helps us in escaping the long queue at the cash counter.

Touchscreen kiosks are also playing a chief role in saving your time while shopping.

Getting Ready For Christmas

What do we really want for Christmas? More time, more fun, more joy and less stress?  Well, you can get a chance to enjoy a stress less Christmas with your loved ones if you prepare well before Christmas. Christmas day comes once a year but preparation for this event takes months. Entering the month of December we have entered the Christmas season. There is so much to do before Christmas, shopping for Christmas presents, decorating your house, grocery shopping for holidays, preparing Christmas foods, and much more. Between all these things we hardly get any spare time to sit back and enjoy the festivity of this spiritual occasion with our family. You can have a calmer and more centered holiday celebration if you have a proper plan for Christmas preparations.

  • Cleaning

Every year you spend hours or even days in Christmas cleaning. Cleaning takes a lot of time so it is better to get done with it before time. Get everyone in the family to help you in cleaning, this would save your time and will also make cleaning a less fatiguing task. Don’t forget to clean every ignored nook and corner of your house including fans, walls, freezer, etc. as you wouldn’t want your house to look dirty and messy when your friends and relatives visit you on Christmas.

  • Gift Wrapping

Go through your gift wrap stash and take note of what you have on hand. Make a list of what you need to purchase at least a couple of weeks before Christmas. Throw away all the torn wrapping papers and crumpled bows and buy new wrapping supplies. The survey of 2,000 UK parents, commissioned by Wilkinsons, found that almost 3 hours and 23 minutes are spent in wrapping your Christmas presents. So pack your gifts before time as you would hardly get any spare minute on Christmas Eve or a day before that. Purchase a gift wrap organizer to keep bags, wrap, bows, etc. neat and ready for use. Keeping everything all in one place and ready to go will help you breeze through this task.

  • Food and Recipes

Plan your Christmas food and holiday meals before time. Take out the recipes you will be needing and if you have to find one, then find it before time. Check your pantry and freezer for the items you have in hand and make a list of what you need to buy. Take out all the baking and cooking utensils you will be needing. Clean them and keep them at a place which is easily reachable.

  • Lights and Decorations

The most time consuming task of Christmas season is decorating your house. Make sure you begin decorating as soon as possible. Go to your store and open all those cartons which have Christmas decorations of last year. Get rid of all those broken ornaments and non-functioning light bulbs and strings. No need to keep all this broken stuff at home anymore. Buy new decorations and a new Christmas tree if needed. Decorate your house with lights days before Christmas and even try to decorate your Christmas tree before time. So you don’t have to spend your last day in store all covered with dust and taking out decorating items, instead of enjoying with your family.

You are done with your Christmas preparation, plan some celebratory activities you can do in all that time you saved by planning your tasks. We wish you an enjoyable Christmas season. Merry Christmas!
