When some houses shine brighter than the rest and you hear the sound of carol verses alternating with refrain, then you know Christmas is near. There’s something special about this season; the weather gets colder, roads get busier (at least in Lagos), clothes and jewelries leave retail shelves faster than they came in, tunes change on your favorite radio stations and of course, you’d feel it in the air.
One of the ways to get in a festive mood is to make sure your immediate environment reflects this. The living room, bedrooms and kitchen should remind you what season it is.
If you’re thinking of how to get your home ready on a budget, here are simple ways to decorate your home this Christmas.
