#TeamClozette And TBLBureau's Fun And Quirky Christmas Traditions

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

Every family has its own way of celebrating Christmas day. Some wait up until midnight on Christmas Eve to share a meal before sharing presents. Others prefer to keep it chill and low-key, opting for spending time together instead of throwing a party. Some families start celebrating Christmas days before the 25th. There are a lot of fun things to do to celebrate the holidays, but some members of #TeamClozette and TBLBureau have fun and quirky Christmas traditions that you might like to try out too. Read on to find out!

Fun and quirky Christmas traditions 

1. Pyjamas party

Amanda and her family's quirky Christmas tradition is having a pyjamas party on Christmas Eve.

For Senior Features Writer Amanda, the holiday season is a very special time for her family. "My parents' birthdays fall in December with only one day apart. This makes our holidays extra special since we're celebrating those, along with the traditional festivities. One time, my aunt and my grandma stayed over for the holidays, so to level things up, I pulled out my collection of onesies for everyone to wear. Everyone was in on it and we had fun deciding who's getting which character. It has become a tradition ever since."

2. Secret Santa charades

Geoffrey's family injects fun into their Christmas festivities by mixing charades and Secret Santa.

"Every Christmas season, our family has this tradition of wearing themed outfits, other than the usual green or red colours. For instance, last year our theme was to wear floral on Christmas day," shared Clozette Philippines Country Manager Geoffrey, who celebrates the holidays with his extended family.

A quirky Christmas tradition they enjoy doing every year involves a playful twist to the usual Secret Santa. "We gather in a circle and, one-by-one, we go to the middle and creatively describe the person we’re giving the gift to before revealing who it is." 

3. 12 days of Christmas

Fun Christmas Traditions - 12 days of Christmas

Christmas is a days-long affair at Evon's house.

Meanwhile, in Singapore, Integrated Solutions Manager Evon and her husband love the Christmas season, so much so that they've fully embraced the 12 days leading up to Christmas Day. "12 Days of Christmas at 'Bishan Bar' (as what their home is called during the season), was an unintentionally created event by our friends. The gate to our house is open to any friends and family who wants a good drink or party during the jolly season! Just walk into the house with booze and we provide the food and place. The challenge at the end of the year is to see who actually clocks the most attendance in those 12 days."

4. Bringing food that starts with the first letter of your name

For Junior Content Editor Sheryl, she and her friends are going to try out a new tradition for Friendsmas 2023. She shared, "The food we bring to the party has to start with the first letter of our names! This is a fun idea because we never know what each other will show up with at the event."

5. Christmas comedies marathon

Let your heart be light.

If you're dreaming of a chill Christmas, then we bet that Campaigns Manager Nicole's tradition would get your vote. She and her family follow the tradition of streaming Christmas comedy films on Netflix. They would chill around the couch and enjoy Christmas-themed snacks.

6. Karaoke night with a twist

What's your go-to holiday karaoke song?

Campaign Executive Elissa loves hosting karaoke night on Christmas with her family. They would crown each year's "Mariah Carey" based on the best cover. 

One of Content Writer Janne's favourite holiday traditions is also singing with her family. Her dad would bring out the microphones for everyone and set up the speakers. Then she and her brother would go for songs that you wouldn't usually find in karaoke hubs like the soundtrack of the Broadway musical Hamilton.
