Managing Holiday Stress

Black Friday (November 27), the day after Thanksgiving Day, marked the traditional start of the holiday season in the U.S. For most people Christmas is a time of joy, but for many, the holidays can be stressful. How should Christians approach the holidays? This week the Adventist Review presents several articles to help make this time a memorable and enjoyable occasion.
