2020 Dec 16
It definitely is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Sri Lanka! That’s because of one thing mainly- Christmas décor. The seasonal setups, small or big, feature a few classic colours – green (stemming from the use of an evergreen conifer Christmas tree, which originally signified the eternal life of Christ), red (symbolising the blood of Jesus) and gold (a symbol of Christ being the Light of the World). Whatever colour, shape or form, decorations are the ultimate way to keep our living and work spaces warm, merry and bright during the festive season. And what’s more – with the ongoing pandemic and restrictions on social gatherings/outings – they are one of the joys of Christmas we can continue to enjoy safely and responsibly. When it comes to Christmas décor, we’ve got you covered like a reindeer on a rooftop – here’s a roundup of places from where you can get a wide variety of Christmas ornaments, trimmings, embellishments and more!
