It depends where you are in your own personal health and life, whether or not you should put up many holiday decorations. Could you be satisfied with just a few holiday touches in the house? After all, you do not want being overworked, which can steal the joy of celebrating from you. Also, what is put up has to be taken down.
Things to consider:
- Do you have help with putting up the decorations and taking them down?
- What holiday traditions are the most important to you? Maybe, that should be what you concentrate on.
- How can you make the holiday easier this year? ~smaller tree; only decorating your mantel; buying precooked food for some of the special holiday meals; pot-luck or assigned dishes for a holiday meal and do it buffet style; gift cards for presents; asking adult family members to give to favorite charities or to some special needs families this year, because you plan to do the same.
