Christmas is after all the most wonderful time of the year, but the lead up is definitely the most stressful (why wasn’t that part in the song eh?).
You have to worry about the food, spelling your 2nd cousin's name right on a card, trying to remember if your sister is still vegan when planning Christmas Dinner and most importantly what on earth to buy everyone!
