A Simple Christmas

I know many people believe the holidays are the happiest time of the year and for the most part I agree. But sometimes the festive season can really wear a person out. The baking, shopping, decorating, parties and of course dealing with difficult relatives can be overwhelming.

So to keep everything as stressless as possible I try to make things hassle free. I find it easier to purchase photo cards instead of filling out my usual fifty or more Christmas greeting cards. In the past I've made at least twelve different kinds of Christmas cookies only to throw out some by the end of January. Now I ask each family member what their favorites are and make only those. We used to have a large tree every year that took me days to decorate and now we put up a small one that takes only a few hours.

Some people really get into buying and receiving gifts, but for me it seems the older I get, the less I want. I'd much rather see the joy in a child's eyes or the smile from an older adult when they receive something they'll truly enjoy.

It's hard for me to come up with gift ideas and I wish some family members would be keen on the idea of eliminating gifts entirely. I believe that Jesus Christ's birthday is the reason for the season and he's the best gift ever given to all us.

Happy holidays!
