A simpler holiday season?

Even though our lives might be frantic, they are familiar and change takes effort. For example, celebrating holidays by buying expensive gifts for friends and relatives may be stressful to our health and budget. But because the exercise is familiar, it seems easier to just do things the way we always have. Routine- even a hectic routine- gives structure and order to our lives that can be difficult to give up. Thus, simplifying initially is more complicated than the way we do things now.
