Are You On The Christmas Countdown?

Once it comes to the end of August each year, some people starting counting how many weeks or even how many days till Christmas. Of course, 2020 is going to be very different for many people: no Office Parties and kids may have started thinking about what they might like for Christmas, but in many households, Christmas expenditure will have to be cut back severely!

If your household is still able to celebrate and you need to know how many days until Christmas, you can see that on the Xmas clock in the top right hand corner of this page.

Preparing Ahead

If you like a big Christmas each year, you may have already started preparing as soon as the previous Christmas is over: recording what went well and what needs to be improved and starting to store decorations and the tree away ready for next year.

If you cook your special Christmas meal only once each year, it’s important to note down the cooking times and temperatures, the ingredients and any special items you include. It’s so easy to forget to buy that special ingredient or the particular temperature or cooking time needed for your turkey or special recipes but you usually remember them at the time you need them, so write them down then in your journal.

Getting Ready

Have you made a list of all the things you need to do? The cards to send, presents to buy and wrap, guests to prepare for? You can get a download list of things to remember and budget for here.

Secret Santa

Many work places hold a Secret Santa event each Christmas, where each worker draws another person’s name from a hat and buys them a present within a given budget. No one knows who buys which present for which person. Some families, especially large ones, make use of Secret Santa each year to cut down on overall expenditure and allow each person to receive one bigger gift rather than many smaller gifts.

 

California Delicious Starbucks Daybreak Gourmet

What’s your favorite Christmas dinner? Some people like tradition all the time, with all the trimmings. Others prefer something different. A lot depends on whether you have the time to consider a new menu, practise cooking it and obtaining all the ingredients, especially if they are somewhat exotic. Some people love cooking and may find they have more time at Christmas to try something new, whereas others may have large numbers to cater for and prefer to know well in advance that they are preparing a traditional dinner, possibly with a few alternatives available for those who do not eat traditional Christmas food. Even if you cook your main meal from scratch, it can be useful to get snacks and side dishes to keep ahead of time. Christmas food or hampers can also be useful gifts, especially for those far away.
