Christmas Stress, why oh why do we stress over what is basically 1 day.  I never stress about Christmas at all.  Can’t understand why people do. It’s just one day with a roast bird slightly larger than your typical Sunday roast. Our kids worlds are not going to end if they don’t get everything they want. Christmas should be about fun and laughter not how much you can eat and drink, how much you spend and how fancy your decorations are. A lot have people have lost what this time of year should be about and if kids can’t have… View Post
