Sometimes, the holidays aren’t exactly magical. They can be stressful too. Holiday gatherings can mean falling short of unrealistic expectations of perfection, family tensions, or awkward conversations. The expectations that come with cooking and baking and shopping and gift giving… (whew!) can mean spending time, energy, and money you don’t really have. And for those experiencing grief, major holidays or anniversaries can be especially tough. So, between seasons 2 and 3, we decided to put out a bonus miniseries to help our listeners remember, that even during the holidays, it’s okay, necessary really, to say no and set boundaries.
