I love Christmas. Each year I try to plan Christmas gifts that I can work on throughout the year. I find crocheting relaxing and something I can do anywhere; you might give it a try. I also enjoy sewing but I’m not fond of lugging around my heavy sewing machine so I keep that activity for when I’m home! You can also sew by hand; people have been sewing for centuries without a machine. I have many hand sewn quilts made by my grandmother that I treasure.
Try to enjoy the festivities and not get stressed out for the holidays. After all, the entire reason for Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. 🙂 There are so many things you can do during the year to get ready for Christmas that will make the holidays more enjoyable and less stressful.
Just to keep track of how much time you have to prepare for Christmas, here you go.
