Christmas Stress??I say No!

by swisslady45











I am beginning to hear some Christmas Stress Chatter so,
I thought about a change we made starting last yr i thought i would share it with you maybe it will help?One thing is we stopped buying for extended family,
 not even family gifts.
 We only buy for our parents and our own children.
 If we are invited to a part where there is a gift exchange i do cookie jars with homemade mix.
  In our own family we ask for this wish list:
 something you want, something you need
 something to wear
 something to read
  We each get 4 small gifts we really enjoyed the family dinners when the focus shifted to what christmas is all about instead of focusing on the gifts.
