After a year long wait, the most awaited festival, Christmas is knocking on the door. The air is already buzzing with excitement and happiness, as the moment of Lord Jesus’ birth arrives closer. From filling stockings with goodies to singing carols at the mass, we look forward to each and every aspect of this festive season. Irrespective of our age we spend weeks deciding how to decorate our houses and the Christmas trees and anticipating what gifts we might get this year. Cakes will be baked and eggnogs will be poured, while we relax in the warmth of festive contentment.
During Christmas, we inadvertently consume loads of junk food as well as special delicacies of the festival. Personal fitness goals and diets go out of the window, as we give into the heavenly smell of Christmas cakes and end up eating more than necessary.
