Christmas is known for its festive vibes, mesmerizing decorations, and lavish three-layered cream-rich cake that everyone fights for. Christmas is celebrated on the occasion of the birthday of Jesus Christ and it’s the day of celebrations and merry-making. Traditionally, the festival was celebrated only by Christians, but gradually, it evolved to become a global festival and is celebrated in every country and by many religions. Now, it is a secular holiday enjoyed by everyone.
The Christmas excitement can be seen in kids who wait for Santa Claus popular for distributing gifts and chocolates for his dear children. On this auspicious occasion, families decorate their homes with Christmas trees, bake cakes, deck up their dining tables with delicious dishes and visit the Church to pray and get blessings of Christ for a wonderful life ahead. This is the traditional style still followed as a ritual. Today, there are more additions such as grand dinners, karaoke parties, outdoor party themes, or a trip to some exotic locations specialized for Christmas celebrations. In Bangladesh, Christmas is celebrated as “Boro Din” and it is officially announced as a Government holiday.
Students who are studying MBBS in Bangladesh and staying in hostels and PG (Paying Guest) accommodation will miss the Christmas vibes. Where the entire nation will celebrate Christmas with friends and families, the MBBS students will have immense pressure for their semester assignments and exams. However, students in their medical mode can also celebrate Christmas- the Boro Din in their hostel/PG. Bringing up the five ways in which students under a shoestring budget can celebrate Christmas with high spirit and enthusiasm.
Decorate Your Room or the Common Room:
Every hostel has a common room or a separate space where celebrations are planned. It’s Christ’s Birthday, and you need to plan something special in that available space to enjoy Christmas Eve. If your hostel does not have a common room, then choose one room unanimously and start decorating it. Since you have a limited budget, you don’t need to buy a huge Christmas tree and tones of lighting. A medium size Christmas tree will work with small gifts, lighting, and stockings loaded on it. Choose glitzy red, green, and golden lights that reflect to make the space look larger. They are cheap and best for festive decorations on a budget.
A packet of red and white balloons will add a spark to the celebration. Place the combo balloons on the walls and on the entrance door. And how can Christmas decorations be complete without a Santa Claus? Buy a Santa Clause and place it on your study tables in the corner. Decorate the center table with a bunch of balloons, and chopped paper ribbons, and make a border with rose flowers to place the cake. This completes your decoration part. Be creative and make the best use of the decorative pieces available.
Order a Christmas cake at a Discount:
The cake is a synonym for Christmas celebrations. It is not only a bakery item but an emotion. There are many bakeries or sweets shops that sell Christmas cakes with special offers and discounts. Check in your area which bakery is the best and what price are they offering. You can also place an advance order two-three days before the party. Also, you can check online food delivery platforms that offer up to 50% off on food ordering. Compare the options and order your Christmas cake from where you can save more and more bucks.
Make it a Game Night with Tasty & Scrumptious Food:
One of the best ways to celebrate Christmas Eve is to announce it as a game night. There are many indoor games like Ludo, Monopoly, Scrabble, UNO cards, carom board, etc. These are some of the cool games that you can enjoy in your room or the garden area with your roommates. Play some music in the background.
How can one ignore tasty food on this auspicious occasion? However, the daily bland food that the hostel kitchen offers is next to a nightmare. When you are in a group celebrating Christmas in your hostel, you can request the hostel warden or the management to change the dinner menu and prepare something tasty and special. You’ll get a change in taste from the distasteful hostel food. You can also ask the warden to allow the group to cook something special for the day. It will be group culinary fun and everyone will have great food for Christmas Eve.
Announce a Christmas Movie Marathon:
Get cozy and celebrate Christmas in your Hostel/PG room by watching old and classic Christmas movies. Yes, choose your most comfortable pajama and put it on for the night. Get some hot coffee or some hot drinks of your taste and preference and cuddle up with some blankets to beat the cold. You guessed it, you're right! Start a movie marathon for the holidays!
Some of the famous Christmas movies that you can download or watch on the OTT platforms are, A Christmas Prince, Better Watch Out, It’s a Wonderful Life, Jingle All The Way, Let It Snow, White Christmas, Happiest Season, The Holiday, etc. A laptop in a hostel takes no time to turn into a room theater. Enjoy binging in a group and make the Christmas night memorable.
Try Christmas Solitaire- The Online Game
Your smartphone is no less than a game station. In this festive mood, you can download the Christmas Solitaire game from the Google Play Store and prefer it playing at this time of year. The cards are arranged in proper order, and the appropriate card from the deck is drawn. Power-ups or lifelines are available to help you if you need them. The game is Christmas themed and there are 100 levels, and plenty of fun to enjoy on each level. Apart from Christmas Solitaire, there are other games like Christmas Cookie, Farm Snow, Christmas Stories: The Gift of the Magi, Christmas jigsaw Puzzle, Delicious- Christmas Carol, Toy Party, etc.
