Are You Ready For The Christmas Season? Here’s What You Might Forget

Winter is upon us, and that can only mean one thing, Christmas is well and truly nearly here. With a few
precious weeks of planning left, are you ready for the big day? Some people are super organized when
it comes to the festive period. They have already bought all the gifts, they have prepared their social
schedule for the christmas period and they are ready and waiting to enjoy it. Whereas others can
leave things to the last minute. Heading to the shops on Christmas Eve in the hopes of buying
everything they need. Then there are some of us that fall in between those extremes. Half organized,
half not. But I guarantee that many of us will forget one important factor of this season. So I thought I
would share with you some of the things you are most likely to forget, hoping they prompt you, just in
case.




The Christmas feast


The main feast itself is different for everyone around the world. The people in the UK enjoy a big turkey,
the Philippines and people in America are likely to choose a Ham. Maybe the Australians will throw a
few shrimps on the BBQ. Some traditions are similar across the cultures, and others different. But there
can be a lot of pressure placed on this big feast for the whole family to enjoy. One of the biggest things
people can forget is the main attraction of the feast, and that could be your meat or your vegetarian
option. A great tip is to organize and order your food in advance. That way you know it’s taken care of
leaving you one less thing to worry about.


The christmas lights


So many people love to decorate their homes at christmas, and honestly the inside is normally all taken
care of at your chosen times. But, what about the outside? Many people love to ensure the exterior of
their home is just as festive, but can often forget or put off the timing to actually put them up. Until it is
too late. This is when looking into someone doing the Christmas Light Installation for you could be an
option. Booking them on a specific day and letting them take care of the awkwardness and hard work. Job done.


Your social schedule


There is no hiding from the fact that over the christmas and holiday period there will be a lot more social
gatherings that you are invited to. It can be easy to forget when things are and when you plan to do
things. That visits to see Santa with your children. The christmas drinks with work. So that you don't
forget, why not make a note of each thing in your diary and plan ahead. It can avoid you feeling red
faced when you happen to double book or miss something important.


Your home security


During the festive period can be a time where burglary can increase. This is mostly down to you not
being in your home as often while visiting family and friends. Or even just having items ready to be
gifted being stored in your home, sometimes highly priced items at that. So it’s easy to forget that you
need to make sure your home security is up to scratch. Your home security could also be threatened just
by uploading your whereabouts and what you are up to on websites like Facebook and Twitter.
Broadcasting when your home is vacant for unwanted eyes to see. It’s always a good idea to check you
have the privacy levels on high.


Sending our your festive greetings


Sending out a Christmas card or a holiday postcard is something many people enjoy to do. But quite
often it can be something you don’t think about until it’s too late. Perhaps you have missed the cut off
for your Christmas post, or just didn’t get organized this year. It’s one of the most common things to
forget. Perhaps you have sent out your cards but forgotten a few family members or loved ones. A great
tip is to keep a list of everyone you want to send a greeting to, ticking off as you have completed them
will ensure no one gets left out.


That one present


Finally, just like you can forget to send cards to someone, you are always likely to forget that one
present for that particular person. Just like you do with cards, keep a list handy of who you need to
consider buying for. It’s a great way to keep on top of things and also budget for the festive season
ahead.

I hope this helps you navigate your way through the busy Christmas period.
