What could be a better time to spread the Christmas spirit than now?
Get crafty and put up decorations to lift the Christmas spirit
You need not prepare a complicated christmas activity if you want to know how to share the christmas cheer. Each family in your community probably has an artist in the closet just waiting to be discovered. Give them the chance to show their talents by launching a Christmas decoration drive in the neighborhood.
Hit two birds with one stone by requiring homeowners to use their creativity and ingenuity by using recycled material for their decoration. Prepare a guideline for these Christmas community events and make sure that everyone follows. Make this a contest with exciting prizes to encourage every homeowner to join. The homeowners association officers can get sponsorships in exchange for product exposures.
Christmas in the Philippines is all about spending time with family so gather everyone and walk or drive around the community to check their christmas decorations. There is no doubt that a neighborhood beautifully decorated during Christmas can easily put everyone in the mood for the holidays.
Caroling is an ideal Christmas community events
One of the surefire ways to rekindle the Christmas spirit is through caroling. Mobilize the community by organizing a group of carolers. Make this an enjoyable activity for seniors in the neighborhood, who have a lot of free time in their hands. Make this Christmas activity more meaningful for the community by donating the proceeds to a local charity.
Involve the community by sending letters to homeowners informing them of the scheduled door-to-door caroling. Aside from giving them a chance to socialize, this activity will also empower them knowing that they are contributing to a good cause. The singing of Christmas carols will also encourage the Christmas spirit in the community.
Prepare a mini concert to spread the Christmas spirit
If you’re looking for ways to share the Christmas cheer, then how about sharing your talent through these Christmas community events? Christmas is about family, but it is also best shared with your community. The perfect way to do this is by preparing a mini-concert where every household has a representative. You can also make this more inclusive by creating groups made up of different households.
The mini-concert could be the highlight of the community Christmas party. Prepare a buffet for the whole neighborhood to enjoy. Choose a venue that can fit enough people such as the community center or an outdoor area within the neighborhood.
