Get a fake tree that’s pre lit

Don’t deal with the schlepping of a real tree AND stringing lights all over it; too much work. Order yourself a pre lit tree this year and forget about vacuuming  pine needles up on the daily. Heck, take it a step further and get a HALF TREE that’s pre lit! Seen here:

And since your tree is already half lit, now It’s your turn. Have a drink to celebrate the fact that you took the easy way out this year. No guilt. Here’s a recipe for a truly amazing holiday cocktail:

Blame it on the house elf

Stress ate all the cookies? It’s Jingle’s fault. Ran out of wrapping paper mid gift wrapping session and had to patch it with newspaper? That damn Ginger! Whatever goes wrong, blame your house Elf and move on. The kids will be entertained with all the mischievous stories you come up with.

Fake it so you don’t have to make it

Have a tradition of making homemade gingerbread cookies for the kiddos to decorate? Don’t feel like dealing with the hassle but find yourself saying, “but I HAVE TO, it’s tradition!” Forget that. Here’s a step-by-step foolproof plan to make your life easier and let the kids have their fun:

1)    Buy cookies

2)    Pre-heat the oven

3)    Discard store bought cookie packaging

4)    Lay cookies on a cookie sheet

5)    Light a Frosty Gingerbread candle https://www.yankeecandle.com/product/frosty-gingerbread/_/R-1595555

6)    Set up decoration stations

7)    Swipe a little flour on your cheek and shirt

8)    Invite the family for decorating fun time!

Your family will walk into a kitchen that has been slightly warmed by the oven, met with the smell of fresh gingerbread and never know the difference. You win!
