As the holiday season unfolds, many of us find ourselves reminiscing about the magical Christmas periods during our childhoods, filled with traditions that added a special touch to the festive season.
Cooking and Sharing with Neighbours:
In the ’90s and early 2000s, Christmas mornings were marked by a beautiful tradition of cooking and sharing food with neighbours. Plates adorned with festive covers were meticulously prepared, placed in trays or baskets, and joyfully distributed among the community.
This heart-warming tradition, unfortunately, has become a rarity in today’s bustling holiday preparations. Bringing back the spirit of sharing food with neighbours can rekindle the sense of community and generosity that once defined Christmas.

Brand New Christmas Clothes and Visiting Friends:
The excitement of adorning onself with a brand-new Christmas cloth has somewhat dwindled over the years. In the past, parents would take their children to the market to pick fresh holiday attire, from head to toe.
These outfits weren’t just for show; they were worn proudly during visits to friends and family. The tradition of children parading through neighbourhoods in their new Christmas finery, spreading joy and creating lasting memories, is a tradition worth resurrecting.
Visiting Father Christmas:
Remember the anticipation of meeting Father Christmas in a festively adorned room, surrounded by twinkling lights? This enchanting tradition involved children forming a queue, eagerly awaiting their turn to share a moment with the jolly gift-bearer and leaving with a bag full of surprises.
The modern twist with peculiar-looking Father Christmas at parties pales in comparison. Reviving the tradition of a more classic and magical encounter with Father Christmas could add a touch of wonder and innocence to the holiday season.
