Do you get stressed during the holidays?

I am so over it. I refuse to fall into the commercial trap. I have so many friends that get stressed, spend to much money and go into debt during the holidays. I am done!

  • I used to. I would get stressed and worry about money and what to buy and everything else.

    Though this year seems to be different. I feel like no matter what we're going to have a wonderful Christmas and I'm not worried or stressed about it at all.

  • No. Life is difficult enough. The holidays are to be enjoyed, not stressed over. Yes, holidays do provoke stress in some individuals - usually due to expectations. Here, we relax and enjoy our family, and focus on the positive.

  • Not at all. The holidays are my most joyful time of year. I know I sound like a lame Hallmark card but it's true. I absolutely love the holidays, I look forward to them like a child.

  • The only thing that is really stressing me is the not knowing who is planning on being here. I don't think it's hubby's whole family, but with them who knows.

  • Yes, try as I might to avoid it - I always stress out. But my mommy isn't coming down this year so that will be much, much easier.
