Like a lot of people I’m sure, this time of year is stressful for me. There’s a lot more commitments from both family and friends and professional colleagues. I find myself trying to create that joyful experience that I’m supposed to be feeling. My home is decorated. We’ve entertained friends. Gifts have been exchanged in the office.
But I still find that it’s not really until just a couple days beforehand that everything starts to come together a little bit. I start to feel more of the seasonal spirit.
