We are counting the days before Christmas! A few days before Christmas, ideally people are just relaxing and awaiting for the day to come. Everything else is organized and prepared. Decorations, checked. Presents, checked. Food to serve during the gathering, checked. Party clothes to wear, checked. Entertainment and games to play with family and guests, checked. Christmas candy bags for kids, checked. And all other Christmas day items and to do’s on the checklist ticked off.
In reality though, it is exactly the opposite. People are stressed out with the limited time to prepare for Christmas day. They come rushing to stores to buy presents and scuttle to supermarkets to get their groceries. And with the volume of people coming in all at the same time, traffic materializes, cashier lines becomes longer, and items and groceries come short. This then leads to crankiness and bickering, which spoils the Holiday celebration because usually a domino of undesirable occurrences tend to happen after.
Despite the unwanted happenings and terrible experiences though, the Christmas day celebration at home should still be festive. If gift items and groceries come short, rectify the situation as best as you can. And if you fail to find ready-to-buy Christmas goodie bags for kids, then go and make your own.
