1. Holiday Cooking – Consider ways to simplify holiday meals: order out, go out, have everyone bring a dish or lay out a simple buffet.

2. Decorating – You don’t have to put every decoration up. Consider a tabletop tree or meaningful centerpiece that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas.

3. Shopping – Shopping online and from catalogs can help you avoid a stressful shopping mall experience. You can also have gifts sent directly to the recipients. Be up-front with people about the changes in gift-giving.
