Some of us choose to and some of us have to. The trick to knowing if you want to work throughout the festivities is often down to money.
If you are self-employed, often the need to earn enough to pay for Christmas presents means you may well be working into the small hours each night, every night.
But there is a solution to this. It's called 'the work-life balance'.
Yes, you've heard it all before but think about it. The balance is there so everyone can enjoy being with you when it matters. For children, this might mean at mealtimes, bath time or bed time.
And what about time for yourself too? That is more important because nobody can pour from an empty jug.
