Christmas is a time for peace on earth and goodwill towards mankind. You have finished celebrating Thanksgiving. New Year festivities will follow right after Christmas. Keep in mind that there are ways to bring the enjoyment of Christmas into the New Year.
Console and Provide
It is not just a matter of smiling and greeting everyone with a Merry Christmas. You have to give consolation to those who are suffering and feeling sadness. You have to provide to those who are having financial difficulties and hardships. There are people that are feeling the pressure and strain of providing food and clothing for their family.
They may have experience financial hardships. Some may have lost their jobs. Others may have insurmountable debts. Several may be undergoing the trauma and sadness of experiencing death in their family or have recently undergone the rigors of natural calamities.
People try to show their joy despite all the hardships they are enduring. They do not want to spoil the festive spirit by displaying their misfortunes. Consoling them during their hours of sadness can lift their spirits and help them get through their obstacles and problems.
Make Spirits Bright
Perhaps you are in a better financial position than others. If so, you have the unique ability and opportunity to help those who are in dire need of food, clothing and shelter. If you are fortunate enough to have a regular job and the assurance of a regular monthly salary you should embrace the opportunity to help those that are less fortunate. That is the spirit of the season.
You should extend your assistance to the optimum. You can seek additional help from friends and relatives. Knowing that a person in need has been provided help can be a much better gift for Christmas.
Share to show you care. That is, why not invite others over to share your Christmas meal or to enjoy other gatherings throughout the year? That may be the best gift they will receive – friendly people to spend time with (a great cure for loneliness) and a fantastic meal to eat!
Spread Joy and Happiness
There are ways to help others without spending money. Smiling may suffice for some people. Smiling and consoling them during their sad moments may help relieve their tension and stress.
You should display happiness in your actions. Smiling requires less facial muscles and it can bring happiness to others. It can make people forget their worries. You can sing Christmas carols to brighten the atmosphere. You can offer compliments to people.
Admiring their clothes and hair styles may be more effective than simply greeting them with a Merry Christmas. It shows you are attentive and observant. You can feel their exuberance and excitement over your complimentary remarks.
While it’s important to allow others to express their joy and delight you should also be ready to listen and empathize if needed. At the same time, you should share with them your optimism and hope for a wonderful Christmas and bright New Year.
Bringing Christmas to others can be the best way to ensure that you will have a fabulous Christmas that is merry and bright!
