Quick Reindeer Gift Box To Celebrate Christmas DayMerry Christmas to you all, my dear friends!

The Tradition of Christmas festival has gradually evolved from times that long represented the Christian period.

All the traditions and customs performed on this day are only the extension of Roman Pagan to Christian ceremonial.

The tradition of Christmas include the 12 days of Christmas, the bright fires, the yule log, the giving of gifts, carols, the feasts, and the church processions, can all be traced back to the early times.

With the passage of time, the nature of Christmas celebration has undergone tremendous change and every year a new tradition begins.

Christmas, celebrated to remember and honor the birth of holy Jesus, has evolved from a staunch religious affair into a merry hearted event that include carnivals, cookies and of course Santa Clause and his reindeer.

Quick Santa Claus Gift Bag On Christmas Day To CelebrateMerry Christmas to you all, my dear friends!

Colored lights decorate many town centres and shops, along with shiny decorations, and artificial snow painted on shop windows. During the season people take the time to enjoy the city or town when it’s all decorated.

No matter which part of the world you are in, the tradition of Christmas blossoms with fun and celebration and carries along with it faith, hope and love.

Celebrating Christmas has nothing to do with spending a lot of money and having elaborate parties. The biggest celebrations are the most personal ones spent with people whose company we love. A simple thing as watching a beautiful Christmas movie with a special someone can be all it takes.

Or maybe share a home cooked meal with friends in front of the decorated Christmas tree.

If you want to give a personal homemade gift to someone, still there is time to make this quick project.

Xmas Tree Shaped Boxes

Christmas Tree Shaped Gift Boxes To Make At Home “Oh holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn…”

O Holy Night (Cantique de Noel) was written by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to “Minuit, chretiens” by Placide Cappeau (1808-1877), an amateur French poet. This Christmas favorite that recalls the birth of Jesus, has become a standard carol for solo performance.

As an interesting fact, it seems that O Holy Night is the first piece of music to ever have been broadcast on the radio. It was on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1906, that Reginald Fessenden, a Canadian inventor, broadcast the first AM radio program, that included himself playing “O Holy Night” on the violin.

While decorating the Christmas tree, still there is time for a quick homemade Christmas gift project.

Hexagonal Snowflake Gift Box

Posted on 23 December 2012 | Comments Off

Hexagonal Snowflake Christmas Gift WrappingHave you ever looked at a snowflake and wondered how it formed or why it looks different from other snow you might have seen?

You may have heard that no two snowflakes are alike, but did you know snowflakes can have one of about 35 different shapes!

Several factors affect snowflake formation. Temperature, air currents, and humidity all influence shape and size. Dirt and dust particles can get mixed up in the water and affect crystal weight and durability.

What are the common snowflake shapes?

Generally, six-sided hexagonal crystals are shaped in high clouds; needles or flat six-sided crystals are shaped in middle height clouds; and a wide variety of six-sided shapes are formed in low clouds.

Colder temperatures produce snowflakes with sharper tips on the sides of the crystals and may lead to branching of the snowflake arms (dendrites). Snowflakes that grow under warmer conditions grow more slowly, resulting in smoother, less intricate shapes.

What a beauty! And what an excellent holiday season gift idea! Prepare a stunning Hexagonal Snowflake Gift Box, fill it with


and present it to your loved ones as a homemade Xmas gift craft.

Unique Thoughtful Homemade Christmas CraftsWhat is Christmas?

Christian Nationalists complain about secularists conspiring to transform it from a religious into a secular holiday, but they don’t seem to notice how it has already been transformed form a somber memorial to the birth of their Savior into celebration of excessive spending and materialistic consumerism. More money is spent on more things during Christmas than at any other time. Many business rely on Christmas buying to break even or make a profit for the entire year.

Christmas in modern America has far more to do with materialism and consumerism than anything else – and it’s a situation which has been a noticed and discussed problem long before Christian Nationalists created their trumped-up War on Christmas complaints.

There are traditional meanings and religious meanings, but no “real meaning.” The “meaning” of Christmas is whatever people celebrating decide to assign to it. If people give it a religious meaning, it will be a religious holiday for them. If they fill the day with other meanings (gifts, family, etc.), then it will have those instead.

If you choose to celebrate with gifts, a thoughtful homemade gift on what you have spent time and efforts will be always appreciated. Being creative and using your imagination can produce some of the best gifts for him/her that leave a long lasting impression.

For instance make a unique Christmas Gift Box and fill it with

Happy Holidays Gift Wrap

Posted on 21 December 2012 | Comments Off

Happy Holidays Gift Wrapping Ideas Homemade“Happy Holidays” is the most appropriate greeting during the holiday season when you don’t know for sure what a person is celebrating.

Even if you do know that they celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, though, “Happy Holidays” may be as good as if not better than “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” because they may be celebrating more than one holiday – at the very least there is New Year’s and many families are multi-religious.

By choosing a narrower greeting, you’re only wishing them well for one of their holidays. Why not wish them well for all the holidays they celebrate?

So Happy Holidays, my dear friends, enjoy the wonderful gift-giving occasions by presenting something really memorable to your loved ones, a special homemade gift box filled with

Santa And Mrs. Claus Gift Boxes

Posted on 20 December 2012 | Comments Off

Fairy Santa Claus And Adorable Mrs. Claus Gift Boxes HomemadeMrs. Claus is the wife of Santa Claus, the Christmas gift-bringer in North American and European Christmas tradition.

She is known for making cookies with the elves and preparing toys with her husband Santa Claus.

Since 1889, Mrs. Claus has been generally depicted in media as a fairly heavy-set, kindly, white-haired elderly female baking cookies somewhere in the background of the Santa Claus mythos.

She sometimes assists in toy production, and oversees Santa’s elves.

Today, Mrs. Claus is commonly seen in cartoons, on greeting cards, in knick-knacks such as Christmas tree ornaments, dolls, and salt and pepper shakers, in storybooks, in seasonal school plays and pageants, in parades, in department store “Santa Lands” as a character adjacent to the throned Santa Claus, in television programs, and live action and animated films that deal with Christmas and the world of Santa Claus.

Her personality tends to be fairly consistent; she is usually seen as a calm, kind, and patient woman, often in contrast to Santa himself, who can be prone to acting too exuberant.

These adorable Santa and Mrs. Claus Gift Boxes are the perfect Christmas Containers to fill with

Merry Gingerbread Houses

Posted on 19 December 2012 | Comments Off

Merry Christmas Gingerbread House Gift Boxes DIYDid you know that…

The gingerbread house became popular in Germany after the Brothers Grimm published their fairy tale collection which included “Hansel and Gretel” in the 19th century.

Early German settlers brought this lebkuchenhaeusle - gingerbread house – tradition to the Americas.

Gingerbread houses never caught on in Britain as they did in North America, where some extraordinary examples can be found. But they do exist in other parts of Europe.

In December 2001, bakers in Torun, Poland, attempted to beat the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest-ever gingerbread house. It was made in Szczecin, Poland, with 4,000 loaves of brick-shaped gingerbread measuring 11 1/2 feet high. It took a week to create and used 6,000 eggs, a ton of flour, and 550 pounds of shortening. Alas, they lost to an American team!

Cute Snowman Gift Wrap

Posted on 18 December 2012 | Comments Off

Adorable And Cute Gift Wrapping IdeasHave you ever wondered who made the first snowman? Who first came up with the idea of placing snowballs on top of each other, and who decided they would use a carrot for a nose? Most puzzling of all: how can this mystery ever be solved, with all the evidence long since melted?

The snowman appears everywhere on practically everything – from knickknacks to greeting cards to seasonal sweaters. Whenever we see big snowballs our first impulse is to deck them out with a top hat.

The snowman is not just part of our childhood memories, but is an integral part of our world culture, appearing – much like a frozen Forrest Gump – alongside dignitaries and celebrities during momentous events.

Again and again, the snowman pops up in rare prints, paintings, early movies, advertising and, over the past century, in every art form imaginable…

If you are seeking for a super easy, fast and affordable gift idea, make a pretty Snowman Box and place in it

Round Santa Container

Posted on 17 December 2012 | Comments Off

Santa Gift Box Homemade ContainerGift-giving, mainly centered around children, has been an important part of the Christmas celebration since the holiday’s rejuvenation in the early 19th century.

Stores began to advertise Christmas shopping in 1820, and by the 1840s, newspapers were creating separate sections for holiday advertisements, which often featured images of the newly-popular Santa Claus.

In 1841, thousands of children visited a Philadelphia shop to see a life-size Santa Claus model. It was only a matter of time before stores began to attract children, and their parents, with the lure of a peek at a “live” Santa Claus.

In the early 1890s, the Salvation Army needed money to pay for the free Christmas meals they provided to needy families. They began dressing up unemployed men in Santa Claus suits and sending them into the streets of New York to solicit donations. Those familiar Salvation Army Santas have been ringing bells on the street corners of American cities ever since.

If you are planning to go homemade this holiday season, here is a great DIY gift idea for you:
