Assuming you have Christmas Eve Day off, I can't imagine a better set up as we approach Christmas then the way it falls on this year's calendar.

Think about it. How many times have you had to rush around Christmas Eve day picking up last minute gifts or wrapping presents after you get home from a long day at work, because it was right smack in the middle of the week?

This year, we have the whole weekend and Christmas Eve day (if you are off, as I mentioned earlier) to get everything together. That really makes it a lot less stressful, and if you're traveling, it will hopefully spread the traffic out a bit as well.

So, here's to hoping you do have Christmas Eve day off and there's a little less hustle and bustle in your holidays this year. Goodness knows, we deserve it!
