The holidays can be both joyful and exhausting. I prevent the fatigue that drains my Christmas spirit by simplifying how I decorate. Smart choices make it less tiring to put up, take down, and pack away Christmas decorations. I put fewer ornaments on the tree and no longer add tinsel. The sparse look took some getting used to. However, feeling happy when I turn on the tree lights and play Christmas music is wonderful. I no longer think "I will not decorate next year."
