Silly Seasonitis (Part 2)

So, it’s the 1st of December, and things officially go into Christmas overdrive–at least in my house they do. Hubbydubs put Chrissy lights up out the front last night, so they were happily blinking at the neighbours strolling past (as if they need to be reminded Christmas is only a few weeks away)! The tree’s going up tomorrow along with all the deccies.

The next twenty-four days are going to fly by at break-neck speed, I am sure. There are parties here, break-ups there, shopping everywhere, and that is all around everything we normally do in a day! Seriously, I have to plot out every hour of every day between now and then, or I will miss something or someone important (which I already did last week). Good thing I like making lists.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas. I love the memories we make with our family on Christmas day and the joy on my kids faces. It’s just the lead up that is insane. But amidst all of the madness, I always take the time to remember why we do it all–the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. A gift like no other. There, just that thought settles me straight away. Everything comes back into perspective and I smile at the busy weeks ahead.

How do you deal with holiday stress?
