How Survive the Holidays in Peace
If you would like to know how to survive the holidays in peace, you’ve come to the right place!
Every year we start off with good intentions about the holidays, but we seem to get stressed in spite of them. Whether it’s a guest who stays longer than we had invited them for, or rivalry in the kitchen, there is always something!
In our house, there are so many great cooks who want to be in charge! I suppose that’s the small price I pay for having taught all 4 of my children to be excellent cooks. Add to that the fact that some of us eat meat and some of us are vegetarian and it can get quite busy!
I know that our family is not the only one that has these stresses around the holidays. In some families there are ongoing resentments for years or even decades, that mean that members only see each other once a year. Nobody wants to talk about the elephant in the room. But they can all sense its presence. And that’s way too much pressure for everyone to get along.
What usually happens in your family? Can you get through the season without a single argument? Or without someone getting too stressed? I hope so, but I fear that in many families the answer is no.
That’s why this year I have made a crib sheet called “10 Steps to Survive the Holidays in Peace.” If you would like me to send it to you, drop a line in the comments.
