It’s time for Festivities!
Hello Everyone 🦋
Whether one celebrates Christmas or not, one cannot help being caught up in the invisible but certainly tangible bubble of festive excitement!! This Festive season is certainly quite different from the one we had in 2019 and so one feels more poignantly the importance of sharing quality time with one’s family, friends and loved ones, reaching out with acts of kindness and being grateful for all the real blessings we have in our life….
If you are celebrating Christmas, there is so much out there to make the experience a good one. The wonderful, positive aspect of being in Level 1 of lockdown is that restaurants are open for Christmas lunches and dinners offering a variety of enticing menus. Now that is a great present!! Take a much-needed break from planning, shopping, cooking and juggling menus for the carnivores, vegetarian and vegan relatives simply by booking at any one of these great restaurants. Remember to book soon!!
On the other hand, if you are hosting Christmas you don’t need to spend a large amount of time driving from one shopping mall to another……. all your needs and wants are fully catered for at Lulu Lalla, Tiffany’s, Tinx, Boska Fashion, Wild Meats, Salty Sistas & Habiba Boho Boutique which offers a great selection of gifts for everyone.
Pick and Pay has many tempting ingredients for you to finally show your family and friends that you are a great contender for Master Chef 2021!! So surprise them with your culinary skills which will surely be well appreciated and have them asking for second helpings or more!
If it’s a special personalized gift you’re looking for and you’re a dab hand at creativity, why not pop into the String Bead and whip up something unique and amazing for that special friend, mom, daughter in law etc, from the dazzling array of beads and accessories they offer.
Last but not least, with all the busy preparations for the Festive Season, why not take some time out for yourself and spoil yourself with some special pampering. One always vows to have regular facials, manicures and pedicures but somehow life happens in between……so here is the time now! Do it! Phone Smoothe, Blonde & Beard, Aiyara Thai Spa & Blaauwberg Tanning & Beauty be beautiful everyday salons, etc, and book your appointment to look and feel amazing for the Festive Season and beyond.
As this historic year slowly draws to a close, we reflect back and are thankful for the many blessings in our life as we persevered through the difficult days.
We reach out with love and thoughts to those who have lost loved ones and whose Festive Season may not be so bright. May the good times shared with the loved ones help to soften the sadness.
We especially thank all the brave and dedicated front-liners who risk their lives to help take care of the patients who need them.
Wishing you all a Safe, Peaceful, and Blessed Festive Season. Take care of yourself and your loved ones by being individually responsible and abiding by all the necessary precautions.
Together we will stand strong in support of each other as we strive to put 2020 behind us and lift our faces to the light of a New Year dawning.
