Think about it--how could you spend an entire year worrying about what presents or token gifts to buy; or who to buy for; or what foods to prepare; or who to invite; or what charity is the most deserving; or what outfit in your closet is the most festive; or when to send the Christmas cards out and who to send them to; and then of course, the struggling and juggling your budget and keeping your sanity throughout. If you pause to wonder, "Am I really enjoying this?" then you have lost the "spirit".
Bah Humbug! Sometimes it's hard to maintain the spririt of Christmas through Christmas!
