Holiday Season

This year my family has decided not to "do" Christmas. No Christmas tree, no presents, no decorations: simply spending time with family & friends and celebrating life.
We chose to do this for several different reasons; all of which have contributed to more happiness and less stress than any other holiday season in years past :)

What are your Holiday/ Christmas plans??


  1. That sounds lovely. :) Hope you and yours enjoy your stress free non-Christmas!!!


  2. This sounds interesting! Christmas can be a very stressful busy time, if you let it be. But if you remain organized, get your shopping/activities/baking/wrapping/ and all other prep done as much as possible in advance (without procrastinating), then it can be an incredibly enjoyable time actually!
    People put too much pressure on themselves to find the perfect gift or cook the perfect meal. And the end of the day, you're right it's about spending time with family and friends and celebrating life. But honoring traditions such as putting up trees and gift giving anchors this "celebration of life" and recognizes the specialness of the season.
    Either way I'm sure you'll have a wonderful holiday time....enjoy!!!
