Let’s face it, holiday entertaining can be stressful. First, if you’re a parent like me, you have to manage to keep your house from exploding into a mess of toys before your guests arrive. Next, you have to make sure that the meal is delicious and everyone’s allergies and/or dietary preferences are addressed. Finally, the cherry on top of all of this. is cleaning up after the celebration.
This makes it hard to remember that the holidays are a time to reflect on your blessings and to celebrate the friendships and family in your life.
Here are 4 simple ways to help reduce the stress and increase the celebration and camaraderie of the holidays.
