The holidays can be hectic for many people. You feel compelled to spend money on decorations that take hours to put up, you need to make your home spotless for visiting relatives, or you spend many frustrating hours in the car trying to make it to a relative’s home. Then you spend even more time and effort buying presents for people in crowded stores. Christmas, Hanukkah, and other winter holidays can feel more like a chore than a celebration.

A British family is working hard to remind people that you should focus your attention on your family during this time and stop worrying about decorations, gifts, and materialism. You just don’t know if this is going to be someone’s last Christmas.
