To make the Christmas tree cutting more fun, why not pack warm treats in a picnic basket and have a snack right where you intend to get your tree? If picnicking is not your style, you can stop by a restaurant. Or, after the tree is safely back home, everyone can drive to the nearest shopping mall to purchase ornaments and series lights to decorate the tree, or like most of us, get down the box of ornaments stored in the attic.
May you carry the joy you create everywhere you go?
If you as a child often spent delightful hours in the kitchen with your Mom preparing Christmas dinner, your kids too will surely take pleasure in helping you out in the kitchen. They dont have to help you with the baking; they can make their own treats like putting frosting on the cake or making chocolate covered pretzels.
This Christmas, give yourself plenty of time to prepare and dont worry if something goes wrong. After all, Christmas is not about where you spend it, or what you do - its about who youre with!
If youre cooking for a lot of people, chances are your kitchen (and fridge) just wont be able to cope with the volume of food required. Not to mention, trying to cook and prepare everything yourself can be a huge burden. By delegating certain tasks or meals to different family members or friends, you can make your job much simpler. Let other family members take care of cold dishes like salads and desserts so you can focus on the hot dishes and save room in your kitchen. Remember, you dont have to do it all yourself - youre always entitled to ask for help from friends and family!
