Christmas is fast approaching; are you still wondering how to make your Christmas tree look pretty and different from last year? Here are 5 easy DIY Christmas decor ideas.
Even though it’s biting cold out there in many parts of the country, this is the season to rejoice! But, for many of us, what is fun Christmas without snow flakes anyway? Well, I know we do mock snow with cotton in most of the Indian Christmas trees since we do not have snowfall, but of course there are also scarves, candles, wine, and socks which are part of the celebrations, add to the festivities and also will help you keep warm!
My favourite part of Christmas is decorating the tree, and if you are a person like me who loves crafting, then I am sure that this must be your favourite activity too. During my childhood, my sister and I used to just hang a star on our verandah and be thrilled just to have that star.
Last week, when I went shopping, the market looked so joyful with Christmas décor and lights all around. The place was brimming with loads of Christmas ornaments that you could use for decorating your tree, be it the reindeer, mini santas, little gifts, stars, santa sticks, santa caps, santa socks, snow men or glitter balls! All these are available in miniature sizes too to adorn small-sized Christmas trees.
Though all that sounds exciting and saves a lot of time and gives variety to your Christmas trees in minutes, there are other excellent reasons to make these at home.
To get you started, here is a DIY video on how to make your own amusing Christmas ornaments. This video offers 5 such simple ideas which hardly take any time.
So go ahead and try them out and you will fall in love with the whole process. This is the season of giving and finding happiness in sharing and caring. Let’s spread the joy and warmth all around, Merry Christmas folks!

As parents, we put a piece of our hearts out into this world and into the custody of the teachers at school and tuition and can only hope and pray that they treat them well.

When I was in Grade 10, I flunked my first preliminary examination in Mathematics. My mother was in a panic. An aunt recommended the Maths classes conducted by the Maths sir she knew personally. It was a much sought-after class, one of those classes that you signed up for when you were in the ninth grade itself back then, all those decades ago. My aunt kindly requested him to take me on in the middle of the term, despite my marks in the subject, and he did so as a favour.
Math had always been a nightmare. In retrospect, I wonder why I was always so terrified of math. I’ve concluded it is because I am a head in the cloud person and the rigor of the step by step process in math made me lose track of what needed to be done before I was halfway through. In today’s world, I would have most probably been diagnosed as attention deficit. Back then we had no such definitions, no such categorisations. Back then we were just bright sparks or dim.
Pathaan touted as SRK’s comeback has been in the news for mixed reasons. Right from the hype around SRK’s comeback and special mentions his body contours; yet I can't watch it!

For me, it’s not about Deepika’s bikini colour or was-it-needed skin show. It’s about meaningful content that I find is missing big time. Not just this movie, but a spate of cringe-worthy narratives passed off as ‘movies’ in the recent past. I feel insulted, and not because I am a devoutly religious person or a hardcore feminist, but because I feel the content insults my intelligence.
But before everything else, I am a 90s kid who in the case of movies (and maybe more) is stuck in time as it wrapped around me then and the gamut has too hard an exterior for me to crack it open!
