I love sparkly things and glorious, heartfelt, magical moments. Maybe that’s why I am such a fan of the holidays. I understand that this can be a time of stress for many, as we are adding merry-making to our already full lives. My best recommendation is to assess what brings you joy, say a hearty “yes” to those activities, and skip the rest. After all, it’s your life, your precious time and energy, and you always have a choice.
