There is a reason why Christmas has spread throughout the world, and the answer is not simply Christianity. The reason why Christmas is so much fun is the warm loving spirit that the holiday invokes throughout the mistletoe, evergreens, wreaths, presents, and sherry. (although the sherry has its own kind of warmth and spirit!). If you enjoy Christmas, there is no reason why you should not plan your own Christmas party this year.
Christmas parties are generally pretty simple to host, especially since most of the party products you will need are already in place in your own home! (i.e. The Christmas tree, wreaths and fairy lights etc). Therefore, the only party products you will probably have to add to your list is disposable tableware such as red cups, gold plates, silver napkins, etc. Around the holiday season it is usually pretty easy to find and purchase these in bulk. Bulk is actually an excellent idea since Christmas will be back next year, so there is no harm in having leftovers!
Of course, you will also have to add some food items to your party products list, primarily the ingredients for a Christmas cake, sherry, mulled wine, and minced pies. You also might consider purchasing some party bags and adding small Christmas gifts such as candy canes and Haribo sweets that the children (or the adults for that matter) might enjoy.
Christmas melodies you should already own, but you will want to dig them out of storage to play throughout the evening. You might even add caroling into your Christmas party, which after a few sherry's may be a fun way to veer the path of the party into the streets!
