A round-up of the most watched videos in the category Lifestyle & Home on how-to video-sharing website Videojug.
While instructional videos on seasonal crafts were popular amongst Videojug users again this week, there were also some useful tips for getting through the party season.
For those whot get overwhelmed around large groups or in intimate settings with strangers, the "How To Talk To People" video offers advice on how to survive even the most awkward of social occasions. Some of the top tips for those who get nervous at office parties or seasonal family gatherings were "use open ended questions" such as "what do you do in your spare time?," give the other person your full attention and be non-confrontational.
For more outgoing personalities inspiration for a good party trick is provided by the video "How To Make A Cup Float In Mid Air." All any budding pub magicians need to impress friends with their levitation skills is a sharp knife, a polystyrene cup and a little bit of prior planning.
Outside of social occasions, DIY videos on Christmas decorations were the most popular with Videojug viewers. "How to make a Christmas tree bauble" stayed in premier position, "How to make a Christmas center piece' climbed six places and "how to make a Christmas wreath" was a new entry.
