The holiday season has arrived! With the cheer and parties, it is easy to forget that there are some reasons why we celebrate December – from a time when Jesus was born to the feast of Epiphany. Here is a blog article explaining why December is celebrated, and how you can learn more about these holidays.
Why do we celebrate December?
December is celebrated around the world for a variety of reasons. In North America, December is usually celebrated as Christmas. Many people believe that December was chosen as the month to celebrate Christmas because it was the month during which Julius Caesar was assassinated. December 25th is also known as Christmas Day.
In Europe, December is often celebrated as Winter Solstice. This is because on December 21st, the shortest day of the year, the sun briefly reaches its highest point in the sky. This marks the beginning of winter, and many people celebrate by spending time with family and friends, eating festive foods, and decorating their homes for the winter season.
What it is actually getting us
December is celebrated all around the world for different reasons. Some believe that December is the month where everything comes to a close and it is a time to reflect on what has happened during the year. Others believe that December is a time of cheer and joy, where people gather together to celebrate life’s special moments. Whatever the reason, December is an important month for all of us to enjoy!
How to save time and money on the holidays
December is a busy month for many people, and it can be even more hectic if you’re trying to save money on the holidays. Here are some tips on how to save time and money this December:
1. Decide what you need and don’t buy unnecessary extras. If you know you only need one item, chances are you’ll be able to find it at a cheaper price at a store than if you try to buy everything.
2. Plan ahead. If you know what events or dinners are coming up, make reservations early so that you can avoid waiting in long lines. And be sure to take advantage of online sales; many stores offer discounts on specific items throughout the month of December.
3. shop smart. Compare prices before heading out to purchase items, and look for deals that retailers offer throughout the month. Buying in bulk can also save you money, especially if you plan on using your holiday decorations soon after Christmas.
What can you do to avoid the stress
December is celebrated because it marks the winter solstice, a time when the days start to get shorter and the weather becomes colder. Families come together to exchange gifts, eat festive dinners, and spend time with friends and loved ones. But avoiding the stress of the holiday season isn’t as hard as you might think. Here are some tips to help make the season happy and festive for everyone!
First, plan ahead. December is a busy month, so make sure you have your shopping done well in advance so you don’t have to rush on Black Friday. And don’t forget about Christmas Day itself: keep your celebrations low key if you want to avoid last-minute stress. Stick to your usual traditions instead of trying something new this year. And remember: family is important during the holidays, so try not to be too hard on yourself if you can’t get out of your own way.
Second, take care of yourself. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, eating healthy meals, and exercising regularly. When you’re feeling good physically, you’ll be less likely to let stress get the best of you.
Third, network with friends. The best way to avoid stressful situations is to have people to fall back on, so make a point of getting out and about with friends. Try joining social groups or going for coffee with coworkers. Fourth year in a row Christmas is cancelled here? Not fair, but we still get fireworks from the local fire department.
The holidays are stressful enough as it is — even if you’re not the least bit religious — and it’s easy to slip into bad habits when you don’t feel like exerting that much energy.
