Begin the Christmas cleaning
If you live in a Caribbean household, then you know about the Christmas cleaning tradition. Start unpacking those cupboards and taking down the house in preparation for the big clean! And who can forget a fresh coat of paint?
Hang wreaths and lights
Dust off the decorations and start hanging them up. Nothing says Christmas quite like an overdose on glitter, décor and…lights! Don’t forget the outside of your home when you’re decorating. You can also make your own wreath if you’re feeling crafty!
Turn up the music
What’s Christmas without the music? No matter what tune makes you move, bring out the radio and turn up the volume. Your home will be filled with the joy of Christmas in no time.
Specialty Christmas candles are going to be everywhere. Light some candles for extra special scents in your home and to also bring a softer light, which in turn makes your space feel cozier and more Christmas-like. Although, is there any better smell than when you’re cooking your favourite Christmas dish?
Begin prepping Christmas favourites
Speaking of food, shout out your favourite Christmas dish! Whether it’s homemade bread, sorrel, garlic pork, ham, eggnog, fruitcake, whatever…once you start prepping, baking and tasting these foods, your kitchen is officially ready for Christmas!
Put up the tree
Get the family together and put up the Christmas tree. That one’s a no brainer!
