Green Christmas: Is it possible?
So how do you go about having a Green Christmas? Cut down on festivities? Very ba humbug. Opt for the greener alternatives? A start I suppose, but still buying in to the over indulgence of the period. I guess the best advice is to just do what you can, catch yourself on when you're being ridiculous (what do you mean the tree doesn't need more than 300 lights?) and learn from your mistakes to help improve your habits next year.
For example, last Christmas was my first family Christmas as host. I made way too much food and as a result spent far too much time in the kitchen. By the end there was a hotels worth of washing up and I was so knackered by the whole experience that I was grouchy for the remainder of the day. This year I'm planning a much simpler affair, and trying to incorporate as many Green touches as possible, most of which I'll be blogging about here.
