  1. I try to handle the holidays as simply as possible. I love to decorate the house and go tot he parties, but Christmas is most importantly about family and friends. That is where I try to keep my efforts.

  2. I handle the holidays by eating lots of chocolate and drinking lots of tea!

  3. I try to try a bite of everything – everything in moderation and always have a cup of something warm (sometimes just hot water with lemon or tea) that is also low calorie (note – NOT hot cocoa but sometimes, yes to a hot toddy) which helps me digest but also has my hand full so I can’t dive into eating something with both hands!

  4. I handle the holidays by trying to take time to enjoy the things I really want to do…and as for gift giving, I plan all year to try and save money and give myself enough time to be unique/creative.

  5. make a list just like santa

  6. By eating lots of cookies and drinking lots of egg nog.
