Sarah Jessica Parker believes that it is important to be organized and so has set deadlines for every aspect of her preparation for Christmas.
The 46-year-old actress is ensuring that the festive period runs smoothly and she doesn't become a "hysterical person".
"I'm a huge fan of Christmas. Though I will say having three children makes Christmas come around very quickly each year, and there is a lot of preparation," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I'm a working mom, so I try to set a date by which everything is done, so by 16 December every present has to be wrapped - and that way I can take it easy rather than turn into this hysterical person," she added.
