If there's a one most-important lesson I've learned over many years of holidays, don't overcommit to things. I don't want MORE things on my schedule during the holidays, I want FEWER things on my schedule during the holidays so I can rest and make merry with my loved ones and enjoy them. So NO on Christmas Eve to leading the youth program at 5 pm, the contemporary worship service at 6:30, and then singing in the choir for 10 pm! No to anything but enjoying my home and family on Christmas Eve. That kind of thing. It's not the same for everyone. Apply to your own life however it fits!
