Released on 17th March, Disney newest film stars the beloved Emma Watson and heavily relies on the storyline of its predecessor.

When her father gets imprisoned by a wicked and terrifying beast, the fearless woman does not hesitate to abandon her freedom to protect her dad. Ready to risk her life by standing up against the cruel monster, Belle manages to gain the respect of the beast. After spending the majority of her time in his company, she discovers a lovable and interesting man hidden behind a frightening mask.

  7. Christmas Gherkin

    Leave a Comment

    Did you know that Americans place a gherkin made of glass on their Christmas tree? In the United States, stockings, baubles, wire lights, and presents are not the only mandatory festive items! The Christmas gherkin definitely has a crucial part in the gleeful celebrations.

    Adding a gherkin to a Christmas tree is a popular tradition, believed to have first seen the day in Germany. This cheery custom works as follows: parents wait until Christmas Eve to hide a small glass ornament shaped into a gherkin on their tree. The gherkin has to be concealed between the branches so it remains out of sight. When Christmas day arrives, children wake up with one mission: finding the hidden gherkin. The first to spot the decoration on the tree is either rewarded with an extra present, or is promised a year of good fortune.

    At Festive, we believe in putting foreign traditions into the spotlight. This year, we are introducing our own gherkin. Wearing a lovely Santa hat, our gherkin is ideal to spend fun family times.
