Don’t let holiday season stress you out

Published 8:17am Friday, November 23, 2012

It seems like every year there are stories about shoppers that become violent or overly aggressive while looking for the great deals on Black Friday. It’s definitely easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and we just ask our readers to take the time in the coming month to relax and not let things stress them out too much.

It can be easy to get into the mindset that everything has to be decorated “just so,” and all the food has to be home-cooked, and all the gifts have to be perfect … it is not hard to see why people often miss the true meaning of Christmas. While it is, first and foremost, a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, it is also a time to re-unite with family members and loved ones and to enjoy the companionship of others.

Let’s not worry about having the “perfect” decorations or “perfect” presents, and instead focus on enjoying the time we can share with friends and family. That’s truly what the holiday season is all about.
