With a few straightforward strategies and a perfectly practical planner, Tiffany Wood (aka Mrs Christmas) shows you how to jingle your way through the preparations, from January to December.
In every family home and behind almost every magical Christmas is the busy and bustling Mrs Christmas. She or he works their stockings off every year to make it an extra special time for family and friends. And juggling all manner of jobs at a time when expectations of festive fun are sky high means that effective planning and time management are vital. Organizational and creative tasks are divided into months, then weeks, and days as you get nearer to Christmas. In the month before Christmas, each week has its own “dashboard” for different activities—creating, cooking, eating, shopping, entertaining—plus planning pages you can fill in yourself. This handbook lends a helping hand to everyone who’d like to embrace a purer Christmas spirit: the kind and mindful over the meaningless, the simple and homespun over the complex and commercial. And anyone who’s ever found themselves trying to buy cranberries from their local store on Christmas day.
