Whether the holidays are trimmed in white, red, gold, silver, or green, most cultures have a special way of celebrating. For the Japanese, it’s “Ōmisoka,” or setting things in order before the new year. In Denmark, they have a special feast called “Juleaften” that often lasts all night. No matter how you choose to celebrate, the sentiment of the season is one of home, family, and fun.
Whether your plans include celebrating with large, extravagant traditions or focusing on small, simple ways to show that you care, there’s nothing better than making a warm, festive home for the holidays.
If you love the idea of creating a cozy atmosphere, you may want to consider some neutral, wintery elements as opposed to Christmassy décor, primarily because you can keep them around for a while. Plus, things like candles, pillows, and warm drinks go a long way toward making your guests feel welcome! W
