Well it is that time of the year again. Loads of adverts on the telly telling us what we should be buying this Christmas. So now is the time to start thinking about our Christmas planning.
Christmas is not just about buying presents. There is the choosing them the wrapping them and then getting them to the recipients. There are also Christmas cards to think about, Christmas food, relatives we will be seeing, Christmas parties and events and what to wear. Christmas for most of us has so much extra going on than normal that life becomes even busier than normal.
Christmas planning is the key. It is also important to identify when Christmas begins for you. If like us the weekends before Christmas are busy with relatives visiting and exchanging presents then – this should be the cut off date for when your Christmas begins.
Otherwise if you are not careful you will spend the whole time pre occupied with all things you should have done or be doing instead of having fun with the rest of the family.
