Christmas has become a complex time of the year. It has developed too many moving parts. Decorating the house inside and out, Black Friday, buying the right gifts, hiding gifts, wrapping gifts, Christmas cards, maxing out credit cards, cleaning the house or making travel plans, planning meals, and the list goes on and on.
It has become a season that includes broad emotional swings. High stress over getting everything done that needs to get done followed by a great joy of having family gathered together.
