Here are my tips for surviving the Christmas period with your sanity intact and your festive spirit not too battered.
Christmas day is simply that, a day. Think of it as a few hours spent with close friends and family (or alone) with some tasty food and gifts. Its impossible to feel "joyful" for a full 12 hour so settle for enjoying not being at work or having many commitments and relax. Any yule time cheer is a bonus. If you are religious the day may have great spiritual significance if not still use it to be thankful for the good stuff.
