What don't you do for the holidays?

This can be a stressful time of year. It is busy and hectic, and sometimes we get caught in the perfectionism of the season. We want to keep up with Martha Stewart or a beautiful magazine cover or unrealistic expectations, or something else. I am NOT Martha. Here I am just hoping for a nice loving time with my family.

I am trying to drop the holiday perfectionism. I hope you consider joining me here. Here is a list of some of what I won't be doing this year, and I hope you add your ideas too!

I won't be making home-made gifts.
I won't be sending Christmas cards.
I won't be buying as many presents.
I won't be making all my Christmas cookies.
I won't be wrapping lots of little stocking gifts.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
