Do enjoy the article entitled Ways to Cut Holiday Stress

In it I've listed a few tips. They should help Ethnic Beauties to not feel overwhelmed as Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and other holidays approach.

We�d like to know how you keep your cool during this season. Suggestions welcome!

One way I minimize holiday headaches is by not attending those get-togethers where I know people will get on my nerves! smile If I simply must put in an appearance, I do so and scram.

I go out with friends and family that I cherish.

Great article April. "Why keep operating as we once did, under differing circumstances?"

I made a conscious effort to stop this year. We are celebrating a simple Christmas and one that isn't focused on tons of fattenign food or visiting with estranged relatives that just drain your energy. I know my parents are not going to appreciate this but honestly don't we all just deserve to celebrate in a way that makes us happy?

My sister wanted to force a gift exchange so I politely declined and said I was doing my own thing. She insisted 3 more times via text, phone, in person. I just said I was sticking to my original plan.

Mom tried the guilt email two days ago, pushing for a weekend long visit so we can see my brother and his wife and two girls who only visit once a year. I simply said we would come mid week and possibly Sunday afternoon.

It's hard to say no and do what makes you and the people you live with happy but it does eliminate stress big time.
