1. Ecological Christmas lights: Commonly, Christmas lights are implemented in trees, in mangers, in fireplaces, or in windows to decorate.

Also, keep in mind that LED lights spend much less electricity and are more efficient.
2. Recycled ornaments: Christmas is celebrated every year, but sometimes you buy things that can be recycled. You just have to have creativity and give the ornaments a different aspect, so that it is new again.
3. Decrease purchases: Keep in mind that to have an authentic green Christmas, you do not need to buy great gifts or new ornaments.
4. At Christmas the illusion of children is toys: You must choose toys that increase your knowledge and imagination.
5. Organic Christmas food: Try to weigh what you consume this will prevent you from throwing away the food. It is obvious that at Christmas you want to consume new foods such as ham bread, baked turkey, and Christmas Hallacas. However, some of these foods are not good for your health, because they have a lot of saturated fats. Implement healthier foods, just like in desserts. In addition, it is suggested to use 100% of the oven with several trays so that you cook efficiently.
6. The decorations are a significant point: Use the old ornaments you have at home, modify them with some different details and you will have a different decoration every year. This annual management is the key to an ecological Christmas.
7. The night of fairy tales: Everyone knows that the magic of Christmas nights is very meaningful to our children. In some countries, the arrival of the spirit of Christmas is celebrated on December 21. That night is magical since after it comes the arrival of the Divine Child Jesus. Some nations celebrate it between 10 p.m. and 12 p.m. and provide a Christmas dinner with thanks and requests, but usually, children make drawings with Christmas colors and are placed in the corner of memories.
The Woman Post wishes you the best green Christmas 2021 and a prosperous sustainable new year 2022.
