The Christmas season is here and most of us are already busy trying to make this year perfect. We want to give the perfect gifts, make Pinterest worthy food, and create as many Instagramable moments as possible. Sometimes our good intentions can drive us to the brink of crazy. For the sake of our friends and family, my co-hosts and I have gathered to talk about the times we’ve been difficult during the holiday season, how we are planning to change that, and what you can do if you know people like us.
