A big part of Christmas celebrations involve decorating your living space with the seasonal decorations. Traditional way of decorating your home for Christmas includes a lot of fresh stuff and home made things. Also there is a color code if you want to decorate your home in the traditional way. Red would be the most predominant color, while white, silver and green also take up much space. Since you will have a huge tree, you can tone down on the greens and use contrasting colors instead. When you decorate your house the traditional way, you make it warm and cozy and very inviting for the people who live there and also for the people you invite into your home. Here are some ideas to decorate your house the traditional way this Christmas.

1. A huge fresh Christmas tree that can fit in the corner of your living room.

The Christmas tree is the major attraction in the traditional setup and the tree is almost always quite huge. It has to be as wide as it is tall so it can be loaded with all the Christmas Decorations from many years.

2. Lots of shiny balls and a star on top

A traditional way to decorate your Christmas tree would be to place a lot of shiny, glittery balls on the tree and also place a huge star or an angel right on top. Also up on the tree would be Christmas cards that are older than you and some handmade decorations made by you and your siblings as kids.

3. A wreath at the door

No traditional Christmas is complete if you do not hang out a wreath at your door. The bigger and more elaborate it is, the more traditional it is. You can make it yourself or get it at a store. Making it yourself is much more fun than buying it at a store. You will also be true to the traditional way of decorating when you make it yourself.

4. The fireplace and the stairs

The fireplace and the stairs are also places that feature predominantly in the Christmas Decorations. Red socks with white trimmings can be hung through the stairs and also on the fireplace.

5. The mantelpiece

This is the second most important place after the Christmas tree and you can place your little figurines or create a miniature nativity scene. Also make sure to light up this place as everyone would automatically look at this when they enter your house.

6. The gifts under the tree

The gaily wrapped gifts should also be placed symmetrically under the Christmas tree. Placing the gifts is an art in itself as it has to look both neat and also inviting.

7. Hang a mistletoe

Maybe a romance or two would bloom every time your guests are caught unawares beneath the mistletoe. You can even rekindle yours with your husband by kissing under the mistletoe. This too is a must have in a traditional Christmas decoration.
