Decorating your home during Christmas can be a lot of fun, especially when done with your loved ones. It is a great way to bond with family and friends. Colorful festoons, fairy lights, snowflake cutouts, and ribbons can make the atmosphere festive. So work up your imagination, and create magic with Christmas decorations. Here are some decorating ideas that can make your home and Christmas tree stand out in the neighbourhood.

1. Use Theme Based Decorations

My son had attended a Christmas party at his friend's place, who had put up Star Wars collectibles as a part of Christmas decoration. Since most of the party invitees were boys, they loved the theme. From swords, to cloaks, to bright headgear, there was every variety of Star Wars paraphernalia. Theme based decorations are a big hit with kids, regardless of age. You can even bake a cake with the theme, to add a dash of excitement.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play, and wild and sweet The word repeat of peace on earth, good-will to men!

2. Stick Pictures of Your Family During the Best Moments

Instead ofposting Christmas cards with your family photographed hugging each other, you can do something better. Hang photographs of your family during childhood, adulthood, best days and worst days. Photographs are great conversation starters, and you can have a rocking party to welcome Christmas. Take your friends for a walk down memory lane with old pictures. Nothing is more charming than reminiscing good old days with a bunch of friends.

Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They’re never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.

3. DIY Christmas Decorations

If you are a whiz at art and craft, you can make your own Christmas decorations rather than using store bought trinkets. Get your family and kids to participate in making Christmas decorations and make this a family project. Besides saving money, you will also enjoy doing the project together.
