Santa in a Jar

A miniature Christmas scene packed in a jar!


Merry Christmas on and all. Its that time of the year when every face bears a smile and every heart is full of joy. Everything associated with Christmas is so beautiful and comforting. Though in India, it  is not popularly celebrated but still the vibes in urban India are felt around -  with churches being lit up, patisseries smoked with freshly baked plum cakes and parties going on to the wee hours of the morning.

In most offices, we have secret santa doing the rounds, wherein every employee acts as a secret santa for another employee (secretively of course). So for my secret santa gift, we decided to give santa himself!

The idea was to re-create a miniature Christmas scene in a jar filled with santa, an x-mas tree, gifts, bells, snow, etc. So all we needed was an empty jar and we bought small sized Christmas d├ęcor (that floods the markets at this time).

We put some cotton as snow at the base, then placed a mini Christmas tree in the back, flanked it with boxed gifts, with finally a small little santa standing right in front. We sealed the jar and placed a little bell around the lid.

All the joy of Christmas was packed up in this jar to bring about loads of happiness. What better than gifting santa himself, so to ask himself what gifts you desire. Ho ho ho!!!
