Malta Easter Celebrations

Join the thousands of onlookers that line the roads from the front of the church all the way along the passage of the pageant. The band players lead the way, progressing inch by inch, setting the mood of gloom with their music. Boys and men, dressed in the attire of shepherds, peasants, and Roman soldiers follow holding various reminders of the life and death of Jesus. Banners in Latin give messages to the devout Christian. And, one by one several large adorned statues pass by the stationary crowd.

How to make your Christmas shopping easier…

Three kings bearing giftsOur own Three Kings will be with us again this year. In fact they took the initiative to come up with some great Christmas Shopping Hints for your busy schedule.

Christmas is an exciting time for most of us – both adults and children. However, there is more to it than just receiving a beautiful gift. It is also a way of showing our appreciation towards our loved ones.

When selecting gifts for our loved ones, we should put in extra thought and consideration. This may seem a mission impossible due to our busy schedule. Indeed, Christmas shopping is a task which many people dread, especially due to the extra expenses. However, if we make time to personally hand pick gifts or with a little bit of planning ahead, everyone will be happy, including your bank account! :)

xmas - tight with time

Christmas shopping can be turned into a fun experience. Here are some ideas on how to make your Christmas shopping easier and pocket friendly this year! If you don’t want to over spend, put a limit on the amount that can be spent and introduce Secret Santa, or as a second option. Rather than buying individual gifts, aim to buy one gift and pool in the same amount. When considering gifts for your family members, perhaps you could choose something that can be enjoyed equally by everyone. Whether it’s a family board game or a family trip to a fun park, choose something that would help you create the memories together as a family. Besides, it will also ease the technology gap between parents and children.

If you are a head of an organisation, you might want to consider getting a game for the common room, where most employees spend their time during the lunch break or where they hang out after work. It should be something fun which will reduce stress, strengthen working relationships, make people interact and build a stronger team… because a happy working environment equals happy employees and therefore positive outcome for the company.

You should always bear in mind that Christmas is a time for us to spend quality time with our closest ones, be it friends or family. It is the time to reconnect, have fun together and create memories. At the end of the day, Christmas is about giving without having any expectation of receiving anything in return – it’s about making others happy and having fun whilst doing so!

This Luxury 5 star hotel in Malta offers great ideas for your Christmas shopping list. Whether you would like to book an overnight stay in one of our luxury suites for your family-time, an end of year dinner for your work team or a spa getaway for your loved one, the Grand Hotel Excelsior will ensure you have a great and memorable experience.
