I just wrote a post for my main blog, http://www.virginiaknowles.blogspot.com/, that could just have well gone here, so I wanted to send you the link for it: Beating the Holiday Blues and Stress
You might also like to read my newest Advent poem there: Invitation to Stillness which is for those of us who get frazzled and busy and out of sorts.
I also have a page on that blog which indexes all of my Christmas articles from all of my blogs. You can find it here: Christmas!
Joy and peace to you and yours!
