Celebrate Christmas

                                                                    Celebrate Christmas

 

Snows are starting to fall and the cold breeze gets even into the Christmas fireplace at your sofa where you gently rub your cold hands to your skin to ignite the heat. But as soon as you sit to feel the heat, you ponder more on what’s going on to the other side of the world. Exactly! Thinking on your family and friends left behind to their homes. Being home away from home this Christmas season to your loved is one thing you hate to think about. You’ll surely miss the insane extravagant foods placed on the table with crispy lechon-baboy surrounded with fruit-salad, keso de bola, cakes, and even rounded-shaped fruits being shared with your family and friends. But wait! There’s more exciting thing that you’ll surely miss aside from the foods, well who would like to miss opening a Christmas gift at exactly 12 o’clock midnight and watching the fireworks crackling and bursting its colours at the sky. Watching the fireworks with our family is one moment of a year that we would like to put in a frame as you’ll only see a big perfect smile with the reflection of colourful lights to their eyes. Isn’t it a lonely night to think about while you are hundred’s miles away from them?

But, hey! Don’t falter on the thought of being away from them this special season. Distance can’t stop us to celebrate Christmas with our family. This season is about time of remembering and sharing the love to our family, friends, and even to those people around us. Even a simple Christmas greeting to them would surely give a vibes of happiness and joy and how much more if you add a sincere smile on your face. From being busy working on the busiest season of the year, your workmates would surely feel the loads of task on their back with wish-lists of gift-items that they are thinking of to give to their families. Time, yes! A time! It is what they need from you. Time is something that you can’t buy but it is something that you can share.

Understanding Why Men Should Give Flowers

Flowers have been widely used as a present when courting or expressing romantic feelings. It is such a sweet gesture that now in the modern times the real meaning of it has been sometimes neglected. In the olden times, courting was regarded as a formal and dignified act and flowers were symbols used to express emotions that cannot be simply uttered in words.

Understanding Why Men Should Give Flower

Meanings were associated in the giving and receiving of flowers, so a romantic language developed in the Victorian Era. Each bouquet was deemed to have a secret message for the women to interpret. Enlivening this Victorian tradition in today’s era will pour in so much meaning–magic, life, and mystery–in this romantic gesture.

Saying it at the right moment

When anxiety and tension is eating you up and you find it hard to have the right words to say, then maybe this short list of flowers and their meanings can help you.

Carnation – Fascination

Chrysanthemum – Wonderful friend

Daisy – Loyal love

Gladioli – Sincerity

Orchid – Love and beauty

Pink rose – Secret love

Tulip – Declaration of love

White rose – Innocence and purity

Yellow & orange rose – Passionate thoughts

Now that you have the right flower for your sentiments, you can be more confident and get major romance points when you know the timing to bring or send flowers. Be thoughtful enough to remember your significant other in special and important occasions. A number of these events to keep in mind are Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, new baby, ‘Get Well’ wishes, saying sorry, anniversary, or just a simple day to surprise her.

A Victorian gentleman in the modern world

Don’t question why giving flowers is important because the answer is as simple as women like receiving flowers. Although you may know someone exempted to this rule, generally, this has been the set expectation of woman from her beloved. While men think that flowers are expensive and temporary as they die and cannot be consumed or used when alive, its meaning is beyond being just a material gift. So, what is it for you, gentleman?

You become a happy man. According to a research of Rutgers University psychologist Jeanette Haviland-Jones, the act of giving beckons a real smile. And with this smile emanates a positive reaction from you as the giver. Don’t you agree that seeing a smile from your beloved is priceless?

You become the smarter guy. Sending flowers to you sweetheart’s office or home signifies that you have higher emotional intelligence than other guys. A giveaway for you is when her co-workers are impressed, you might just get a quick access on their network of contacts when you need it.

You become a better manager. Not every flower sent out means ‘I love you’. Boost up your staff’s morale by sending a vase or basket of flowers to their work station. You’ll see a good change in productivity and less trace of anxiety on their faces. It’s as good as saying, “Let’s finish this project on time or we’ll be both dead meat.”
