Put up your family Christmas Tree
The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant marks the beginning of the festive season in South Australia. For many families it’s a day to put up the Christmas tree and start making homes feel festive. This year we are encouraging everyone who is watching the #PageantAtHome to put up their Christmas tree on Saturday 12 November before watching the very special 90th year of the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.
Get into the festive spirit on Pageant Day by baking some treats to eat while watching the National Pharmacies Christmas #PageantAtHome! Robern Menz have shared THREE DELICIOUS and easy Christmassy recipes for you to really get into the festive spirit on Pageant Day:

Become a Pageant Reindeer Character
Volunteer makeup artist Lisa has been doing make up at the Pageant for nearly 30 years and she's shown us how to do easy Reindeer Makeup for kids. Follow our step-by-step makeup tutorial on how to become a Reindeer! This is the same make up that the characters on the Jolly & Jingles float have and it can all be done with the makeup that can be found in Mum's make up bag!

Set up your own Blue Honour Line
The Blue Honour Line was introduced in 1958 and marks the spot along the route for people to sit and stand to watch the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant. It was named the Blue Honour Line to encourage everyone to honour and respect the Pageant, for the safety of everyone attending. This year we want you to set up your own Blue Honour Line at home just like Pageant Day!
