How do you prepare for the holiday?

How do you prepare for whichever holiday you celebrate around this time of year? I celebrate Christmas, and since I'm still off at school right now, I can't do all of my usual family stuff (like baking cookies and hanging stockings and all of that stuff), but my housemates here and I just got and decorated a tree, so our apartment smells awesome, and I'm drawing a holiday-themed picture while listening to the worst best song ever on repeat...

:sing: LAAAAAST CHRISTMAS, I GAVE YOU MY HEAAAAART, BUT THE VERY NEXT DAAAAAY, YOU GAVE IT AWAAAAAAY~~ :sing:

So, my fellow dA-ers, how are you prepping this holiday season? Or, if you like to avoid all of this holiday stuff, how do you keep from going crazy as the holidays are shoved in your face every time you turn on the TV/radio/etc?

I've bought the last presents today (lie... since I still haven't gotten out of the house to buy the very last on yet) - so I've taken care of that part of the holiday... which is the most time-consuming since I now have two families to celebrate it with.

This weekend we will probably decorate (well... eh... sort of) and make the candy and quorn-balls. Which is the most exciting part of holiday preparations except for the actually celebration. I will celebrate three different times this year (21:th, 22:d and 24:th) so there is quite much happening around the holidays.


Though I'm happy I won't have to decorate the tree and that kind of things anymore. When my brother moved out I had to take care of the tree mostly by my own, so when I moved out I was quite happy to get away from that chore... when my parents are nice enough to get the tree before the 23:d...

Wow, it sounds like you keep pretty busy this time of year! The three celebrations sounds intense, but I'm sure it'll be great.

Well, we usually decorate around this time of year, and everyone's asking about what kinds of presents to get each other, especially the parents/grandparents who bug you to not end about what you want! >V<
But yeah, we usually just go about our business, prepping for our church service, putting up trees, etc. On Christmas all the cousins and family members all get together over at my Grandmother's for presents and dinner. It's really fun, and nice to be with the family! ^U^

Oh, that sounds so nice! I hate the "what do you want?" question because, other than one main thing, I never really know what to say >.>
