  • No dinners to host, no traveling to see family.. Just trying to make it memorable for our boys and that's overwhelming for me... I get so depressed this time of the year, but I don't want my kids to know. I can't wait for it to be over.

  • I agree with both of you. I enjoy the eggnog lattes and xmas lights but beyond that, forget it. All the pressure of xmas, holidays, cooking, entertaining. I'd much rather it were summer.

  • I love this time of year. I try to do things throughout the year to help keep it simple. The gifts are almost all bought & wrapped. I do a generic letter for Christmas cards and they're addressed and ready to go except for the final printing of the letter & sealing so I can add final details. It helps to spread it all out over a years time instead of cramming it all into a month. So bring it on!
