“I don't believe in being stressed over the holidays. What's the point? Sure, they're busy. And yes, I've resigned myself to the fact that they're no longer to be spent leisurely -- as I’m a mom now and extended family plans come first. But what's the alternative -- not having family to celebrate with? When I hear people complain about the holidays, I just want to say, "find a real problem to complain about!
I literally buy gifts all year long. When I hear a family member say they want/need something, I make a note and buy it for them for Christmas. I always have my shopping done weeks in advance (if not months). I also pre-make and freeze really great appetizers that I just pop in the oven the day of an event. -- Tali
