Fitness experts are guiding the viewers to fitness regimes. Different experts and doctors are called upon to give advice on the issues related to a particular topic.

Sometimes we should put a little more thought in the gifts you buy for your friends then the money you spend on it. Gift should always be well thought of then well paid for to show love.

Selecting the right gift in Pakistan for your friends is difficult because there are many factors to consider to avoid awkwardness. You should avoid risk in Pakistan, and communicate openly about exchanging gifts. In Pakistan sometimes it can be difficult to buy presents for your friends as you don’t find many things.

Here are some guidelines for shopping in Pakistan for your significant other during the holidays even if you can’t find the right thing:

Do not use “controversial” packaging for gifts. An example of controversial packaging is putting something notably cheaper, or something other than jewelry in a recycled Tiffany box.

Do take a friend along for shopping in Pakistan to keep you sane. When we are left alone to our own devices, we talk ourselves out of fine judgment.

Don’t go too big, or too small when buying a gift in Pakistan. The easiest way to avoid too big or small is to talk about it beforehand and maybe set budget limits.

Do discuss whether you’re exchanging gifts or not that year. If you started dating any time after September, you’re in that weird abyss of not knowing if you’re doing gifts for the holidays in Pakistan

Don’t give “get-a-clue” gifts in Pakistan. A “get-a-clue” gift is a gym membership, diet materials, etc to people you love.

Do triple check sizes on dresses in Pakistan. Women in Pakistan feel humiliated if you get them a size smaller as they think you are hinting on their size. Just do your homework and make sure you’re at least close.

Do communicate with their family members and friends for ideas for gifts. Not only will your friends appreciate that you took the time to research, you can do a little bonding with their family in the procedure.

Don’t give PG 13 gifts to friends in Pakistan.

Now, is the time to decorate the Christmas tree and enjoy the festivity of the Christmas celebrations, which brings the message of peace, prosperity and happiness for everyone. So friends, gather around the Christmas tree, and join the singing choir! Merry Christmas to all!

It is time to light up your evergreen Christmas tree. The Christmas tree is often brought into a home, but can also be used in the open, and can be decorated with Christmas lights (originally candles), ornaments, garlands and tinsel during the days around Christmas. An angel or star is often placed at the top of the tree, which represents the host of angels.

In the ancient times, pagans, Druids, Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews celebrated the Winter Solstice, (Dec. 21st), the day of the year that the Sun begins its ascent in the sky, thereby ushering a fertile time of planting and bountiful harvests. Hence, the evergreen tree on Christmas represented eternal life.

Later in history, Germans hung wafers on the tree along with the apples to represent the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross on Christmas. After the beginning of the New Year, the Pagans would take the chopped decorated Christmas tree down and burn the “Yule” log in remembrance of the past year. The custom of erecting a Christmas tree on Christmas can be historically traced to 16thcentury Northern Germany and the Baltic region.

The first documented use of an evergreen tree in a Christmas celebration was in Riga, Latvia, in the year 1510. In the early 19th century, the custom on Christmas became popular among the nobility and spread to royal courts as far as Russia. During most of the 1970s and 1980s, the largest Christmas tree in the world was put up every year on the property of The National Enquirer in Lantana, Florida.

The United States’ National Christmas tree is lit each year on the South Lawn of the White House. Christmas tree is, lit by candles in Denmark. Modern commercialisation of Christmas has resulted in trees being put up much earlier; in shops. In Australia, the Christmas tree is usually put up on the 1st of December, which occurs about a week before the school summer holidays; except for South Australia, where most people put up their tree after the Adelaide Credit Union. Types of trees used for Christmas celebrations are fir (Abies), which have the benefit of not shedding their needles when they dry out, as well as retaining good foliage colour and scent; but species in other genera are also used. The first artificial Christmas trees were developed in Germany during the 19th century.

Natural Christmas trees on the other hand are entirely biodegradable and are often reused by tree farms or local governments as woodchips or mulch.
The Christmas trees are decorated with candles or electric lights (fairy lights), toy bear following a particular theme. It is mostly done in departmental stores. Many people on Christmas decorate outdoor trees with food that birds and other wildlife enjoys.

Each year, 33 to 36 million Christmas trees are produced in America, and 50 to 60 million are produced in Europe.
