I used to feel sad on these dates and I decided to change my attitude to feel better because I really have no reasons to feel sad.

i personally enjoy the holidays- when i was a child, teen and young adult with my parents and my kids - it was fun - but my ex was NOT FUN - depressive personality and one of those many thousands who felt excess of every kind was what the holiday was about. never a gift but expected everything from everyone .
so i dreaded that part - since he is still involved and around unfortunately he is still a stressor..
but for the most part now - my children , me and the pugs - that is what i love.

It's up and down. This year has stresses unlike previous due to fewer hours at work. Last night we decorated the tree, which was fun. My son persisted to get the tree in the blasted (!) stand. It's great to have a teen in the house who can take over chores and share in them with me! Big wooohooo!

They are usually happy for us. As our parents get older, they get a little more stressful, but so far, it's still okay. We have good relationships with our family, and that makes for good holidays.

I usually do. Last year was difficult because hubby was in Afghanistan and it was the first year away from my family. This year is better but also a bit more stressful worrying about finances and driving to Ohio. But its better than last year so that's a plus.
