Christmas traditions that everyone should know about

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below


Christmas is undoubtedly one of the most popular holidays of the year. In Singapore, this is no different thanks to the high number of foreign residents who live here. The blending of cultures brings out a variety of traditions as the holiday moves in. As Christmas approaches, you might find yourself enjoying even more of these traditions.


Are you trying to participate in more holiday traditions this year? This guide will introduce some of the most common traditions to give you some inspiration.


1 – Enjoy Christmas Lights & Decorations

Christmas is a great time to enjoy lights, often on display at malls, public buildings, and even homes. Lights can be colorful or twinkling in white, offering a grand display. Some displays are even synchronized to sync up with music.


Other decorations, like Nativity scenes, are frequently on display. You might see religious displays, renditions of Santa Claus, or even other winter-themed scenes. Of course, the types of displays will differ from region to region based on local traditions.


Some families purchase and decorate a Christmas tree each winter. Trees can be decorated with lights, garland, tinsel, and even dried cranberries on a string. At night, people turn on the lights to see the lovely light show. For an extra spin on traditional decoration, you can even set up a toy train set underneath it.


2 – Eating Dinner Together

One of the most popular ways to celebrate Christmas is to have dinner together with the rest of the family. Plum pudding, mince pies, ham, and other delicious foods are often served. Of course, the foods you eat in your home will be based on your own family traditions in addition to regional cuisine. The great thing about traditions is that you can adjust them to meet your needs.


Some families enjoy holiday buffets, frequently prepared at restaurants and hotels. Here, you can expect to find everything from traditional seafood to ham and roast turkey. An array of desserts is also typically available.


The goal of the dinner is to spend time together, enjoying the company of those you love. Making and sharing memories is one major component of the season.


3 – Attending Church Services

While there are many people who celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays who are not religious, many people do enjoy attending services during the winter festivities. Some people do feel that attending the services helps them connect with their loved ones as well.


4 – Sending Holiday Greetings

Greeting cards offer a lovely way to send your best wishes to people you care about. Sending a heartfelt message in a Christmas-themed card shows just how much you care. Cards are typically sent to an entire family, but you can also opt to personalize a card just for one person.


To make a card truly special, write a personal message inside. You can express how you feel, showing your thanks for special people in your life. You can also display the cards as part of your Christmas decorations.


5 – Enjoying Christmas Entertainment

Christmas offers a lovely opportunity to enjoy themed entertainment, ranging from holiday music to street performers. You will find holiday-themed plays, concerts, and other types of shows more available during this season.


Christmas carolers are also part of the Christmas tradition. In some regions, carolers go from door to door singing holiday songs. Sometimes they collect donations for charities and other social causes.


6 – Baking Holiday Treats

Baking is one way to pass the time as you await the holidays, especially because you can share the treats with loved ones. Even if you will not be hosting a big event at your home, baked goods are an excellent holiday gift for neighbors, friends, and even colleagues.


The most popular holiday flavors include cinnamon, hazelnut, caramel, chocolate, pumpkin, and similar spices. Cranberries and raisins are also highly associated with Christmas when baked in breads, though pies and cakes are not uncommon Christmas desserts either. These rich, spicy flavors are holiday favorites.


7 – Giving Holiday Gifts

Gift giving is perhaps the tradition most commonly associated with Christmas. People give gifts to their family members, friends, co-workers, and even their pets. Gifts can cost very little or be very expensive based on who they are for. For example, the gift you give to your romantic partner is likely to cost much more than the gift you give a colleague at work.


Gift hampers are an excellent gift choice. One reason is because they are so versatile. Gift hampers contain a variety of objects, often associated around a theme. Gifts inside the hamper or basket will include delicious treats, drinks, and sometimes even decor or toys. You can often even customize gift hampers to ensure that you choose just the right gift for your loved ones.


Our Christmas collection is perfect for a family exchange or to send to your beloved from afar. We love the arrangement of gifts each of our holiday gift hampers contain — and so will those you love.


For example, the Blissful Surprise hamper contains an array of treats, ranging from dark chocolates to fruit crisps. We also recommend the Sweet Addiction gift hamper, which contains chocolate treats, sour worms, and nuts.


We offer so many different gift hampers to choose from that you are sure to find the perfect gift for everybody in your group of friends and even in your family. Gift hampers provide an excellent way to send variety and fun to those you care about.


Christmas is full of fun, time-honored traditions. There are so many ways to celebrate, and people start their own traditions all the time. No matter which traditions you choose to take part in this year, you are sure to have a fantastic time.
