It's the most wonderful time of the year, but it is no secret that it can also get a bit hectic thinking about what you can do to make this years' experience the best one so far for your family and friends. Searching for the best decoration; browsing through thousands of festive recipes to find the perfect ones for your holiday party; thinking about the right gift for your kids and trying to read their signals on precisely what it is that they want are all factors that can cause stress levels to increase in even the best planners out there. But hey, don't panic! With a little bit of friendly guidance, you will manage to do just fine. So, what's the best recipe for an unforgettable holiday experience, you might ask?

Take a second and sit back. Relax and clear your mind. Do you vividly remember all the beautiful holiday celebrations in your life up until now? Don't pressure yourself- it's normal if you don't. Now let's try a different approach. Grab your family photo album, open it and allow yourself to go on a trip down memory lane. Don't you find it easy remembering even the tiniest of details when you go over all your holiday pictures with friends and family? The taste of your grandma's mashed potatoes, the ringing laugh of your siblings, and even the adorable wet stare that your childhood pet used to give you while you munched on all the delicious homemade treats. Even if your memories are not fitting these particular examples, it is sure that you found in these pictures some beautiful emotion that warmed your heart. That is the power a single photo contains and makes it possible for you to relive the magic of every beautiful moment you had with your loved ones, over and over again. Exactly how amazing is that?
