Christmas is a time for peace and tranquility, a time for families to come together by the tranquil light of the fire and to reflect on the year gone by over a glass of eggnog.
Unless you've got kids. If you've got kids, Christmas is a delirious marathon, a process that you survive as much as enjoy.
