What can give more positive emotions than following certain family traditions in the pre-holiday days? At this amazing time, most of us strive to get closer to our families, putting everything else for later. The day when we will gather with our families, in the warmest Christmas atmosphere in every sense is not so far.
Let's look at the traditions of the Royal family and decide whether to follow their example in preparing for the holiday?
- Why don’t we write a congratulatory letter?
Nearly 1,000 personally signed postcards are sent these days by Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Different signatures are used in the personalized card.
Let's also not be ordinary and say simple congratulations, but express our emotions, writing even about some little thing that connected you with the addressee in the outgoing year. Call on the help of imagination: write about the future beautiful moments together.
- Why don’t we go shopping?
Of course, your shopping is unlikely to take place in Queen Elizabeth's favorite supermarket Harrods. But taking the day off, you can just as comfortably go to your favorite stores.
- Why don’t we make a Meghan Markle-style Christmas dinner?
Plan your trip to the nature, follow the example of the Royal family, welcoming Christmas in Sandringham House. Maybe you have your own country house. And if not yet, then pre-book a cheap country hotel for the whole family.
- Why don’t we decorate two Christmas trees?
From reliable sources it is known that in the dining room of the Royal family flaunts a live Christmas tree, and in the living room there is an artificial thirty-years-old silver tree. In any case, decorate the house with your family – this will give you so much fun and unite you even more.
- Why don’t we give simple presents?
As it turned out, in the family of Queen Elizabeth it is accepted to give small gifts, and on the principle: the cheaper, the better. As in Royal family, let’s this time open presents right before Christmas. Folded boxes are disassembled at the command of Prince Philip. As you understand, each gift is signed. And though this is a handmade gift, but it has so much warmth!
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones! And may last year's negativity never return to your home. Let the coming year be filled only with positive!
Too early for congratulations? Let us be the first to congratulate you!
