So when it comes to the Christmas tree everyone has their own way, some go and buy a real Christmas tree or buy the fake one. In any way, the fun of decorating the tree is no less and the whole family helps in decorating while listening to the jingles and crackling fire. Most important is the star on the top, which is bright and shining. The tree is taken care of till the new year and the star on the top symbolizes the new beginning. After all this, there is always a competition whose tree is better.

Christmas Parties

Since Christmas is considered a big event many of us throw parties at this time and it results in happy get-togethers. Relatives, friends living at far off places even come and spent some time together. Drinking spiked eggnog, eating the grilled chicken and heating up the feet near the fire while talking about the past memories are the best part of the evening. Everyone is scheduled the whole year but Christmas becomes a reason for many people to go off schedule.

Opening Christmas Presents
