Who's panicking over Christmas?

    I remember Christmas being a magical time when I was younger. Now, especially with my condition it has become more of a normal day. I spend it with my wife and she does a wonderful dinner and we have a few drinks together. But also being retired means every day is a holiday and there are no such things as  weekends (So to speak) 
    It really doesn't matter, does it? if you don't have a turkey. We also don't have to bother with buying 'special' presents. although we do make the effort. But because of my very limited movement all is bought online. We both have all we need normally and buy what we want all year round if we want something.

    Christmas is now more commercialised than ever and not what it used to be. If you have your family around you, then that surely should be enough, especially if you have not seen them for some time. 
    People tend to listen and follow what is said on TV about what a Christmas should be. Then the panic starts, along with panic buying causing more problems. 

    I say, just kick back, relax and take it easy. You will enjoy it all the more.

    Kick back, relax and take it easy sounds like a super way to approach Christmas @Dragonslayer :)
