Christmas is supposed to be one of the most joyous times of the year. Unfortunately, for a lot of people. Christmas was always filled with stress. How to get all the shopping done when I worked full time was a chore in itself. Then there was the baking, taking kids to see Santa Claus, Christmas Eve festivities, gifts for co-workers at the office and others who helped me during the year as well as what I often referred to as the “ultimate nightmare” - yes, the Christmas dinner.
