Writer's Block: 'Tis the season

Do you find the holiday season relaxing or stressful, and why?



I fight off stress with all my might, do almost all my shopping online, limit social activities during the month of December, and try to live within this mindset…

“I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays, let them overtake me unexpectedly, waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: 'Why this is Christmas Day!” - Ray Stannard Baker

The stress of this season makes me want to break out in chorus. Altogether now...

God rest ye merry lj friends
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Saviour was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power when we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy

Speaking of Christmas, can you give me a call when you have a chance? I need gift ideas for a couple of people.
