Discovering a website that is themed around Christmas and isn’t trying to sell you everything under the Christmas tree can be particularly difficult – as there are so many different audiences that you can sell to where Christmas and winter festivities are concerned. However, there are websites dedicated to the celebration of Christmas and educating the public on Christmas and its origins, without trying to loosen your purse strings!
#1 – Northpole.com
Northpole.com is a quirky little website filled with various activities and entertaining guides on how to create numerous decorations and oddities related to Christmas and festivities. Northpole.com is one of the best websites as it provides a large amount of educational information aimed at children and adults; there’s also a section for teachers, parents and children to log in to the site to access everything that the website has to offer.
The layout of the website is also clean and simple which makes the site more appealing and easier to use; the sound effect that occurs when you hover over ‘Santa’s Secret Village’ is a nice touch that is likely to intrigue a younger audience.
#2 – Merry-christmas.com
Merry-Christmas.com isn’t the brightest website or the most enticing but the sheer amount of content that this website holds is astonishing. This website has a variety of pages including games, gift ideas, Christmas music, recipes, traditions and much more.
One of the best things about this website in my opinion is the list of traditions, explanations and examples of their origins that comes with each of the titles. It’s little touches such as this and the ease with which Merry-Christmas.com can be navigated that make this such a great website. There’s also a section focused on providing entertainment and activities for young children which could be useful if used correctly.
#3 – Allfreechristmascrafts.com
Although the colour scheme and layout of this website aren’t perfect, the unbiased approach towards Christmas and religion is refreshing. This site focuses on the productive and creative spirit of Christmas and how you can achieve this creativity through free crafts and events.
Allfreechristmascrafts.com also focuses on sharing craft and gift ideas through articles and explains in great detail how to make several of the items that it mentions. Although this website is not solely focused on Christmas or Christianity it’s still relevant as it teaches others how to make Christmas decorations quickly and conveniently.
On top of aiding people in creating convenient Christmas decorations; several of the articles also include how to make these decorations without having to spend a great deal of money. This detail can be important to many families that struggle to afford gifts at Christmas and would therefore not be able to decorate their homes or trees sufficiently if the technique was not free or inexpensive.
There are thousands of other sites that concentrate on promoting Christmas and its importance within the community, but not all of them do this without also advertising their own brand and range of products. For more information on Christmas decorations and gift ideas you could check out one of the sites that we have listed and reviewed above, or alternatively you could find a site that caters to your particular Christmas requirements.
