I usually put up my tree on the day after Thanksgiving. I spent the day running errands and didn't get it started. I will tomorrow. My family always has a lot of little get-togethers during the holidays. We find people that need help and do what we can. We share A LOT of favorite foods - too many to mention. I get together with friends, go looking at lights, do crafts. It would take me forever to list all the things I do. I will probably add to my list every day.
God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Wow December is almost here. Where did the time go? Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza are all coming up soon.
Since we are a diverse group we celebrate different Holidays and in Different ways. No matter what holiday you observe/celebrate it can be a stressful time.
How do you handle the stress? How do you catch the Holiday spirit?

Would love to hear from y'all. Let's huddle together, share, laugh, and support each other this Holiday season. Let's have FUN!
As for me, I almost always put up my Christmas tree each year. It's a Charlie brown tree; really small but cute. I have miniature lights and ornaments I put on A couple of years ago my best friend gave me all new ornaments so I could change the look.
I also collect snowmen and have a wider variety of ornaments and nick-nacks .
I enjoy doing my shopping online because I hate the crowds...they make my anxiety skyrocket.
I try to attend the Christmas eve service at church.
This year I will be spending Christmas evening with my sisters' and their families. I am looking forward to it as we have a new baby in the family and I Haven't met her yet; only seen pics.
