It's Our Turn: Christmas shopping: my worst nightmare

Email News Alerts

The holidays are a lovely yet frightening time of the year for me. The food, the smells, the snow, the laughter, the family, the decorations, the sparkle, I can’t get enough of it.


Nothing, however, will get me running for the hills like the thought of Christmas shopping.

My throat starts to swell, I develop tunnel vision, the cold sweats commence, it’s all simply too much for me to bear.
