With the passage of time and the ever-growing excesses of today's world, Christmas has become more and more complicated. What was once a simple, yet lovely and meaningful, holiday has become so hyped that average people have more on their plates than they can handle. This book can help you simplify your Christmas. We offer suggestions for small, intimate get-togethers instead of huge parties, for events that include children, who sometimes get lost in all the festivities, and for meals that are simple rather than state dinners. We hope the ideas in this book will touch your heart.
