Do you find yourself stressed out over the holidays? What do you think is your biggest cause of stress?

I think my stress is the same as Olivia's.  There is just so much to do, so many people to see, so many events I want to attend, that I really get stressed out about fitting it all in.  I want to make it *the* perfect Christmas every year and without fail, I feel letdown.  I need to let go of my expectations a bit and just let things work themselves out.  :)

I really think I cause my own stress. I like to do crafty things and bake things and try new things and I stress myself out trying to make it perfect. 

I don't really stress over gifts. It's definitely more the memories I want to make and traditions I want to start. I want to do it all.
