The fastest way to dim holiday magic is to let stress ruin everything. But it's hard not to get overwhelmed, especially if you're the one in charge of making Christmas, Hanukkah or other holiday celebrations happen.
If the first signs of exhaustion are setting in, there are a few things you can do to keep from sinking into the darkness. One of the easiest? Stay positive. Holidays happen every year and they should really be a time of joy. You've got plenty to be thankful for and focus on that. Everything else will either fall into place or not be missed.
