Remember being a kid and looking forward to the holiday season each year? There was nothing more exciting than getting time off school, spending time with family, listening to cheerful songs on the radio, eating great food and opening presents, lots of presents. Ah, the good old days! Now you're all grown up, and the holidays represent something completely different. Sure, all of the excitement is still in the air, but there's something about having to plan, cook and host it all that makes the season just a little more stressful.
