It’s Christmas. Again.
Do you remember when you were little, and it used to feel like an absolute age before Christmas came round again?
Now, though, the years tend to fly by a little quicker.
Christmas seems to reappear ever faster. But then, it is a yearly event and a year is not that long a time, really.
Plus, by the time we are grown-ups with homes to keep and maybe families, too – we will have clocked up a fair few Christmases. And hopefully, we will have many, many more to come.
During this frenzied time of year, it’s possible to get overwhelmed with the practicalities of creating The Perfect Christmas.
So, it can be helpful to remember that, in a lifetime, this festive season is just one of many.
This perspective can take the pressure off any stress-inducing To Do Lists or it’s-got-to-be-perfect tendencies.
It can be calming to think that, as wonderful and fleeting as Christmas may be, it will be back next year.
So, relax. It’s only Christmas.
Wishing you much merry – this, and every Christmas,
