Do You Feel Pressure To Create The 'Perfect' Christmas?

Now is your chance to have your voice heard. Share your thoughts!

Christmas is a magical time, especially for families with young children. But it can also be a very stressful time of year for parents, dealing with tight budgets; big expectations; pressure to buy the latest toys, gadgets, and runners; and an influx of family members.

Are you the queen of Christmas shopping, or do you get overwhelmed about cooking times for Turkeys, and finding the 'perfect' presents? What stand-out memories do you have of magical Christmases going exactly to plan; or everything going hilariously (in hindsight) wrong?

We want to hear from you!

We're writing an article about organising Christmas and would like you to contribute your thoughts. Do you plan a strict budget, or work it out as you go? What do you spend most time/money on? And do you feel the pressure to get everything just right, or just enjoy the ride? Share your views on Christmas and your comment might feature in our new article!
