While a lot of people think that Christmas time is one of the most (if not, the most) beautiful time of the year, some of us actually don’t like Christmas that much (not me, obviously). So let’s all agree, whether you like Christmas or not, it’s a lot of stress. We have spared no effort and searched the entire internet (yep, all of it) for good tips! Just so you can have a peaceful and joyful Christmas. Kidding, kidding. This post is based on a five-minute research. Just like most of our posts on this site, but we bet it’s better than listening to your professor!

Mulled Wine aka Glühwein (or any other alcoholic drink)

Okay first of all, if you are stressed out just treat yourself to a cup (or five) of Glühwein. And remember, since it is Christmas time it is absolutely okay to Glühwine even in the morning. No one will or can judge you. See, sometimes life does let you live your life the way you want.

Finding the perfect outfit for the Christmas Party

Before you panic and search every website and every clothing store for your perfect outfit, confirm that you actually were invited to a party. If you weren’t invited to a party at all, your problem is solved. There is no need to put yourself under the immense pressure and stress of shopping. Simply chill on your couch wearing your most cozy outfit. And maybe, just maybe, treat yourself to some Glühwein. For the poor souls who were invited to one, just wear whatever you wear anyway. What? Who’s gonna be a dick to you during Christmas?

Planning a Christmas gift budget

Here is how you can make sure you don’t spend too much money on Christmas gifts. Simply Plan a Gift budget, and then don’t look at what you have spent until April — or maybe ever. Otherwise, you’ll end up feeling bad and that’s not what you want. On a related note, we have a blog post about the perfect gift for students who are low on money. Read more.

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself

If you haven’t prepared yourself for Christmas (as is the case with me) and are in denial, have a cup of (you’ve guessed it) Glühwein. You’ll be amazed by how little you care. And if for some weird reason none of these extremely helpful tips helped you in any way, here’s a video with the best Christmas Fails. If you do not feel better after this, then you’re beyond help.
