Do you have the feeling that Christmas comes earlier every year? And I mean not before the 25th, but earlier in the shops? I think so too, but take it as a sign to get started on an organised, stress free Christmas this year.
The trick is in the planning part – but pretty much everybody knows that. My background is German, and we celebrate Christmas Eve rather than Christmas day. So we have to be ready 12 hours earlier. Why not aim for that so you can have a relaxing night on the 24th and a good night’s sleep.
I love it because we are done and dusted when the neighbours are still busy putting the roast in the oven.
