Christmas is a really exciting time of year, but many people don’t actually appreciate it as much as they should. So in today’s news update, I’m going to break down exactly why Christmas is so awesome, and how you can achieve maximum festivity.
Let’s start with Christmas lights. Did you know that having lights can increase your happiness by 70-80 percent? They come in a variety of shapes and colours that can suit any budget. They can be re-used every year and can make your house really stand out in a crowd. Don’t overuse them, though, you don’t want to be “that guy” on your street.
Also be careful, these suckers can get hot. They also have a habit of spontaneously turning into a knot that you will absolutely never be able to untie.
You absolutely must get a tree. A real tree. Not one of these phoney plastic ones. Christmas isn’t real unless your tree is.
I know what you’re thinking: “But Ryan, what about the tree needles that get everywhere? It’s so much to clean up by January”. Well, if you want to have a fake Christmas, devoid of happiness, built on a tree of lies, then be my guest. But don’t complain when you feel empty and joyless for the rest of your life.
This is what Christmas is all about. To maximize your Christmas’ potential, be prepared to sink a lot of energy and money into your presents. I’ve heard amateurs say, “it’s the thought that counts”, but don’t let them fool you. Buy big, or buy a one way ticket to lonely-town.
A good way to make sure you deliver the best presents every time is to do some simple research. Read what are some popular presents this year and discover what’s on the top of everyones most wanted list.
Always remember: you can absolutely buy happiness.
Family is very important during Christmas, but it can be hard to get everyone together, especially if some of your relatives live overseas. So if you can’t be in the same room as your nearest and dearest, think of alternatives like Skype, or Apple’s ‘FaceTime’ feature. This will be a great way to have your family close, even if they’re far away.
Of course, if worst comes to worst and family isn’t an option, consider crashing another family’s Christmas. It could work out cheaper for you, and you won’t have to be alone on this special day.
Well, there it is. I hope you have enjoyed these great tips on how to get the most out of your Christmas.
If you want help with your next Christmas celebration, don’t call me. Unless have a nice bottle of scotch and a big TV for the cricket, feel free to leave me alone.
