Well, it appears that the holiday season has begun! While the extra time with family and loved ones, elaborate meals, gift-giving occasions, and flurry of activity can be fun and heart-warming and exciting, the holiday season is well-known for causing stress! Being with difficult family members, spending money we don't have, eating too much (and the wrong food), and other stressful aspects of the holiday season can take their toll, and have some people exhausted by the end. How do you feel about this most unique time of year?

What aspect of the holiday season stresses you the most? (Or, if you feel no stress during this time of year, would you like to share your secrets with others?) Leave your comments here!

I’m surprised so many people are stressed by the holidays. I find it so much fun that it relieves my stress — sort of like a vacation. I enjoy seeing the kids so happy and getting great things for them to enjoy!
