‘Tis the Season

Everyone wants to be jolly during the holiday season, but it’s not always easy. Traffic jams, pricey gifts, too many people in too-small spaces can make anyone feel more like the Grinch than a joyful Santa. Sugar Pine Realty has suggestions on “How to Deal with Holiday Stress“.

My favorite one for today? “#4 – Take a break and get some fresh air.” Our Christmas parade starts in less than an hour and I plan to be there – not walking in it, not organizing it, but just hanging out on the sidelines. Then I’m going to check out the ice sculptures on German St. And then I’m going to stop in the holiday markets for some Christmas greens. Work can wait for a few hours.
What’s your favorite way to de-stress? Might I be so bold as to suggest a weekend getaway at a cozy bed and breakfast as the perfect relief for the holidays?
