Traditions: When is it Time to Change?

The Reluctant Entertainer

I’ve been reading articles and stories about how other women minimize the stress of the holidays. Even television shows hit on this, sharing simple timesaving tips and ideas. Wrapped up in all of the hub-bub of the holidays, yet trying to keep things simple, I’ve find one hitch as to why we women get hung up: Too much tradition.  Tradition is a beautiful thing if it doesn’t overwhelm you. But with traditions come a lot of expectations. And with failed expectations come a lot of stress and guilt.

Especially those things that bring stress to the holidays. Why not toss them out. Nothing is sacred except your family and God. Don’t let a dish or strangers add anxiety to a special day.
