I work in advertising, which means "thinking about the holidays" usually starts in, oh, August for me. However, it can be a boon ... thinking about it that early means I can usually be done with gift shopping and planning before Thanksgiving. Then in December, it's just about the cooking, having fun, and being with loved ones (and the occasional obligated ones). Make no mistake, I will still have at least one massive meltdown — but having a game plan in place way early means the chaos is somewhat minimized.
