What’s Christmas like in Shillong City? Find out for yourself …

Christmas, Shillong,

SHILLONG | December 24, 2019:

Like every year, Christmas is here! the hearts of the people are filled with excitement and joy. The preparations for the festival are already in full swing. The jingling of bells and the impeccably adorable decorations at every corner of the city indicates the onset of Christmas Eve. We are going to celebrate Christmas 2019 in a few hours and it won’t be long before people prepare to welcome a new year.

WHAT’S CHRISTMAS LIKE IN SHILLONG CITY?

It all started with great preparations. All houses and churches are decorated with ornaments, toys, flowers and pictures, even the shops and streets are also decorated in a beautiful and lively way.

During this Occasion, Christmas trees are planted in every corner of the house. The trees are then decorated beautifully with lights of different shapes and colours. And as dusk sets in, the trees wear a shiny and colourful look. The tradition of decorating a Christmas tree adds spice to this pleasant festival.

With the beginning of December, people had already began making plans and looking forward for shopping. To set the festive mood people, tend to shop earlier. However, there is much more to Christmas shopping than just gifts. One has to take some important decisions to make it a wonderful experience.

While not every woman is down for some sequins but Sequin dresses are an absolute must for all of the parties. A little classic black dress or a little white dress is always the highlight at every party or gathering; but this season, come out of your comfort zone and put on something bold, or sparkly. These fun glitter dresses are the best way to stand out. Sequins are perfect for celebrating Christmas.

A true statement piece that will never look out-dated — FUR; who does not love fur? We all do! But this time it is not restricted to black, white, beige and browns. It has made a comeback with every color you can think of.
The furry outerwear staple instantly makes an outfit’s look and feel, luxurious.

Long, lean and stylish Maxi coats which are once very popular during the 80s are coming back in fashion again. I am sure this coat is trendy and perfect for Christmas eve. The best winter coats will provide the perfect finishing touch to every outfit.

The new fashion trends — a must have for everyone are the High thigh boots. They are sexy and never out of fashion; They keep you warm all day long. You can always pair them up with your favorite Christmas dress. Never the less, ankle boots are still in fashion and never out of trend. These boots are chic and will not cost you dearly.

High heels’ shoes are the ultimate piece of fashionable footwear that are simple and perfect for this occasion. These heels are just perfect in height, and the ultimate comfortable heel that you can wear all day long. There are just so many shoes that are too good to buy.

Carrying a big handbag is not luxurious, especially during occasions, therefore carrying a clutch is a thousand times more preferred than the awful feeling of being weighed down by a heavy strap bag. These fancy clutches with sparkles will add a little shine to complete Christmas attire.

The world of fashion is taking a new generation by storm. And this generation is young, small and tender. Kids fashion is becoming big, getting all the attention from designers, companies and well yes the parents.

Earlier, fashion primarily used to cater to adults’ needs, but in this era, the kids get the equal exposure; they equally self conscious and aware of their looks and beauties. The fashion industry now caters to children’s designer clothing. Young children are enjoying a varied and extensive range of fashionable clothes, which helps them to set a fashion trend of their own.

Apart from gifts and greetings presented to each other, candies, cookies, sweets and chocolates, Christmas is incomplete without a cake. Christmas cakes are designed with the theme of Christmas. Most used colors are green, red, and white. A bright, beautiful Christmas cake certainly deserves a place in every house.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls move out of their houses in their best attires with great joy and enthusiasm. This Christmas, let us spread the joy and happiness amongst our community.

Have a wonderful and Blessed Christmas !!!

TNT-The Northeast Today wishes our Readers a Merry Merry Christmas
