It’s the most wonderful time of the year, where you can see Christmas decorations
hanging and hear Christmas songs basically everywhere you go, from shopping
malls to protocol roads, you’ll feel that joyful vibes. But how do people usually
celebrate Christmas really? We have several traditions of how Christmas is
celebrated.
1. Christmas Greeting Cards
Sending Christmas cards via mail has been a tradition from way back. A
Christmas card is seen to be a tangible way to show your friends and family
that you care about them, it’s all about that small gesture. A typical Christmas
card will have the sender’s family picture in it, as years go by, the cards you
keep can become a mini photo album of how the family has grown. One thing
for sure, when you send a card from someone, it shows that you still keep
them in your mind and will surely bring a smile to their face.
2. Gifts Under the Tree
As kids, we all look forward for every Christmas morning and find all the gifts
and presents under the Christmas tree. We were told then that Santa Claus
sent those presents as a reward because we have been a good one that year.
3. Family and Friends Gathering
It’s been a tradition that most families and friends get together during
Christmas time over lunch or dinner. They usually spend their time reflecting
back through the year and thinking about their new year resolutions, as well as
exchanging gifts. And to spice things a little, they often do “Secret Santa Gift
Exchange” so you would not know who got you that present. If you are still
confused about what to get your secret Santa, you should definitely check out
KadoKita boxes.
4. Christmas Carol
“Children sings, are you listening?” is one of the most common Christmas
carol songs you can find. Christmas Carols are now a staple aspect of
Christmas celebrations, be it in schools, shopping malls or public places, you
will encounter a caroling group at least once. It’s like a free concert for
everyone.
5. Christmas Feast
What’s Christmas gathering without food? It’s no secret that many of us spend
all year thinking and dreaming about what we are going to have for Christmas
Eve or Christmas Day feast. Each country has different traditions when it
comes to their feast menu, for instance in the United States, they will have
Turkey, while in France, they will be celebrating Christmas with muscles, foie
gras and champagne. In Indonesia in particular, they serve either roasted
chicken or roast beef accompanied by many sweet desserts. Yum!

And these are several ways Christmas is usually celebrated, KadoKita wishes you a
happy jolly holiday and a happy new year!
