I always set a goal of December 20th to have all of my shopping, cleaning and baking done. Then, I spend the next few days leading up to Christmas relaxing, playing with the kids, watching Xmas movies and generally just enjoying the season guilt free. This way, it's not all over before I know it because I've taken the time to relish the moments.

Shop at the beginning of the week and get to the mall as close to opening as possible less people, less stress.

If you have people to diner that do not know each other well I put place cards with their names on it and seat people I think would have the most to talk about next to each other, plus each guest receives a small gift

Take 2 hours for yourself one afternoon and do what you want like coffee with a friend, bubble bath, etc. and before you start your 2 hours put the phone off, drop the kids off at a movie or with friends and stick to your guns and no working around the house.

My best tip is to have everyone that is coming for Christmas dinner bring something for the dinner as I cook the Turkey and Dressing. It works out really great. I also use paper plates, so there is minimum cleanup. A couple of weeks before Christmas I also make shortbreads, gingerbread and nuts n bolts for snacks so I'm prepared and don't have so much to do on the day of our Christmas celebration.
