CHRISTMASS OR CHRISTMESS?
The first thing you need to do is to plan ahead so you don't become depressed, frantic, under pressure and over budget. If you ever feel like you're in a pressure cooker, it's now! Much of the pleasure of a merry Christmas is based on using good organizational techniques and time management principles. You need directions and boundaries to keep from being overwhelmed.
Most of us don't have the luxury of devoting all our spare time during November and December to Christmas activities. All the things you have to do can bring pressure if you don't bring your wants and needs into a manageable schedule.
Let's begin by admitting that Christmas isn't sprung on us at the last minute. It's always the same date, there are always 365 days between Christmases and yet we still find ourselves saying, "I can't believe it's nearly Christmas again!"
You need to decide your goals and purpose in celebrating Christmas. Is it to draw the family together? To impress others? To have fun? To increase spirituality? Or perhaps, just to survive the season?!
The goal is to have a Christmas in which you will glorify God through the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ by enjoying the ultimate spirit of goodwill, where there is peace and a relaxed atmosphere, and where you can enjoy kinships, without being left with a mountain of bills and unfinished projects. You can make it the special time of year it was meant to be, if you take time to make to get organized.
