The ‘divine’ excitement that characterises the Christmas season is why you would always hear the phrase “Just because it’s Christmas!” This phrase symbolises unlimited joy that makes everything beautiful possible in the Christmas season. So, you can paint over your interior walls in Christmas colours – just because it’s Christmas!
Of course you don’t necessarily have to paint over the entire walls of your space because the season would not be all year long. A Christmas touch-up in the strategic section (s) of your space in any of the Christmas colours would do just fine. Wondering what the Christmas colours are and which section of your interior is strategic for Christmas colour paint over? Check below.

Christmas Colours
Although green, gold, red and silver are the most familiar colours for Christmas, there are other colours traditionally associated with the festivity and these colours have their peculiarity and significance in Christendom, such that when displayed, they fill the atmosphere of the season with aesthetics.   
Green – This signifies eternal life; the evergreen nature of ‘Christianity’ which emanated from the lives of the early Christians who lived a ‘Christ-like life. So, green represents the eternal life of Jesus Christ the commemoration of whose birth is the reason for the season. As a matter of fact, people exchange evergreen branches and palm branches as a sign of good luck and fertility in all life ramifications.
Red – This represents the bloodshed by Jesus Christ during his crucifixion. Red is also the colour of Bishops’ robes. The colour is said to have been worn by St. Nicholas, and, thereafter, became Santa Claus’ uniform.
Gold  – ‘Gold’ became a significant colour of Christmas because it was one of the gifts the three wise men gave to baby Jesus.
  Silver – Silver just became an alternate colour for gold but gold is predominantly warmer.
White – This is linked to the purity of Jesus himself. This is also associated with the western world’s snowfalls during the festive season. This snowflake white is often associated with purity and peace.
Blue – It is often associated with Mary the mother of Jesus; the rich blue robes she was often seen in as a result of her wealth and importance. Mary was often painted wearing blue to show she was very important. Blue also represents the sky and heaven.
Purple – This symbolises repentance and fasting as most Christian denominations do in expectation and preparation for both the celebration of the nativity of Christ at Christmas and the return of Christ at the second coming.
Strategic Interior Sections To Paint Over
If you do not want to do a complete Christmas colour paint over, you can just paint over the most attractive section of your space, such as the television wall section, the walls around your curtain or blinds, your bedroom bed headboard wall, and your dining room, if you have a separate dining space.
It is important to note that you do not necessarily have to use regular paints, as you can go for 3D wall panels, wallpapers, or 3D acrylic wall stickers, depending on your choice and financial capacity. Just ensure the designs you select are in any of the Christmas colours.
