Christmas is such a magical time of year but I can’t help but wonder if in our busy lives we’ve forgotten the true meaning of Christmas which rejoices in family, friends and the birth of Jesus. This year spend a moment or two planning a Christmas festive season that will be filled with the warmth and spirit of Christmas.

You can create a magical atmosphere in your very own living room that you thought only a sprinkle of ‘north pole elf dust’ could deliver!! All you need to do is visit Christmas Presence, nestled at 69 McCoy Street in Myaree. Cheryl and her friendly staff (who are incidentally all Christmas crazy) are Australia’s newest and most comprehensive retailer of all types of Christmas wares and they’ll be delighted to show you everything you need.

Christmas Presence have such a broad range of decorations, trees, Christmas toys, lights and much much more…. Many things of which are exclusive and normally only available in major retail outlets found in the USA, Canada and Europe!!! Take their hand painted wooden items for example – you wouldn’t find them anywhere else!

So where to begin the decorating? If it’s the only thing Christmassy you dare to indulge in this year then it has to be the Christmas tree…I implore you!! A beautifully decorated evergreen tree, with coloured lights ablaze inspires many warm memories of Christmases long past and is one of the most beloved and well known holiday symbols.

The tradition of a Christmas tree has been around since ancient times and has played an important part in winter celebrations for many centuries. Although thought to have originated in Germany the notion of The Christmas Tree eventually spread through out Europe. Early Christmas trees were often decorated with apples, nuts, cookies, coloured popcorn and candles. The invention of electricity in the early 20th century and use of electrical Christmas lights made for more use of the tree both indoor and out. Through Europe and the rest of the world the Christmas tree has become readily accepted and adored as the traditional centre piece for Christmas celebrations and joy.

Christmas Presence also offers many things you can make and do with your children in the all important month of December leading up to Christmas day. There are nativity sets that can help represent and tell the story of Christmas in your lounge-room, stockings to be hung and advent calendars to open every night counting down the days to Christmas…and last but not least definitely on the list should be a letter to Santa! 

Feeling crafty? For those youngsters who need to make up for some otherwise not so angelic behaviour there are home made bons-bons that children can make and be proud of come Christmas lunchtime…oh and did I mention the potential for scrap booking your Christmas photos? The store in Myaree really has all your needs plus more covered!!! Christmas Presence is open 7 days a week and is accepting lay-bys for Christmas now.

So whether you’re after tinsel, lights, decorations, wrapping or a special gift for that hard to buy for person, Christmas Presence is really a store you just have to visit…even if it is simply to remind you that Christmas is all about those things most magical!!
