Tip of the Day: Helpful Tips for a Stress-Free Christmas Day
Make sure you ask everyone who is coming to bring food and sort out who brings what.
Take it easy on the alcohol, as in some families it is a tradition to start drinking early, and by the time afternoon rolls around and the real drinking starts things can start get messy, so have plenty of non-alcoholic options available for yourself and others.
Do not expect everything to run smoothly as people will arrive late, food will not turn out as you hoped, presents will be a disappointment, so prepare for such so they do not break your spirit.
Accept that for some people, Christmas is a very difficult time, especially as it can be a reminder of people they have lost, so be understanding if they are not putting on a bright face.
Finally try to take a break whenever you can, and make sure you sit down to just enjoy the day and the people you are spending it with and have a very Merry Christmas!!!
