Peace is a prerequisite for enjoying celebrations, festivals and vacations. The more special the occasion, the greater the damage caused by lack of peace.
During enjoyable times, you will have to answer the following question for yourself, "Is it worthwhile to choose words and actions that will create distress right now?" Put in this form, we will often see clearly that we would be wise to refrain from words and actions that will cause or prolong an unpleasant argument or quarrel.
