Where does January Go?

Hello February! Where did January go? Are you also wondering where? Haha.

I had a very busy January. That maybe the reason why I didn't notice it was already over. I didn't even have my year end post. My apologies for not posting enough to entertain you. I don't want to make promises again but one thing is for sure, I am just here and will be back every now and then. Will that me okay? Hmmm, thank you so much for staying with me for the past years.

Anyway, did you know that it's only 11 months before the holiday? Oh, I am always excited for Christmas. So just like last year, I started saving this early for Christmas. I am also thinking of what gifts to give. In this way, I'll feel less stress when the holidays come. 

Holiday stress is so real right. I am so sure most people do experience this stress especially when Christmas day is coming near. According to a post-holiday survey stress conducted across America, 71% of people felt stressed during the 2017 holiday season.

The survey also showed that women were 1.2 times more likely to be stressed than men.

And I agreed with it 100%. Because we women are the ones who take care of what gifts to give, the food to serve, the house and almost everything the family needs during holidays.

The survey also revealed that 61% of people say spending time with loved ones is one holiday tradition that makes them the happiest. Just like me, I am sure you will agree with it because Christmas is spending time with the family.

While I think everyone loves to decorate their house during holidays, the survey surprising says only 53% did decorate they home.

Decorating our home is one Christmas tradition we will not forget. Putting up the Christmas tree, decorating it and lighting the lights make us feel more the spirit of Christmas.

Apart from those above, I am sure you also have your own post-holiday stress experience. Actually, for me, the aftermath of Christmas holiday went until January. Haha. Anyway, Christmas will always be the most wonderful time of the year. And the stress it brings will always worth it. Agree?
