Yes, it’s time for my yearly nag about the holidays.
The holidays are supposed to bless you and your husband, not run you ragged. Grab your husband, a pencil and pad and brainstorm about the coming holidays. What has meaning to either of you? What was special that you did last year (or as a kid) that you would like to do again this year? What can you do without? (I’m talking about slimming down your holidays so that you have time for the really important stuff). What do you think about gifts? What is important to communicate to each other, to family and friends?
