We put so much pressure on ourselves to put on perfect holidays. I was talking with someone who said since she is a stay-at-home mom she felt she had to go all out for the holiday since she didn’t work outside the home. And a working mom may feel since she is not at home she needs to make the holidays really special.
It takes a lot less time and money to make the holidays special then we think. Think back to your favorite holiday memories. Some of mine:
Listening to the Nutcracker Suite. Baking sugar cookies.
