Avoiding holiday stress

Christmas is almost here; I'm feeling quite peaceful. So far, I've avoided the usual holiday stress. 
My goal this year was to do less. Less spending, less cooking (actually no cooking), less planning, and less worrying. Doing less has brought more quality to my life. I feel healthier and happier, having more time and energy to do the things that really matter.
As far as Christmas goodies, I am well stocked with cookies, banana bread, and homemade fudge; thanks to my generous friends who still bake.
