    What do you hate about the holidays?

    Has your sleazy cousin Eddie shown up unexpectedly? Did your Aunt Bethany wrap up her cat? Are the in-laws ticking you off? What do you hate about the holidays?

    One of the things I hate is gift wrapping. I usually do such a crappy job I end up unwrapping the gift and putting it in a gift bag.

    -Shoppers who wait until the last minute to purchase a "hot ticket item" or popular item for that year, only a few days before Christmas. When they have 11 months out of the year to take care of purchasing a gift, then blame it on the retailers.

    I'll agree on the gift wrapping part! Might as well just wrap the whole gift in scotch tape I use so much! lol

    Well if its an even year, I don't have my kids because I share visitation with my ex. *grumbles* So that I don't like.

    Other than that, I think its just the people who are extra crabby that think they should be first for everything. Like yesterday, a woman in line waiting to check out at the grocery store made about 5 people behind her including me wait while she went to the chip isle to get her bag of chips. Only to come back and decide she doesn't want them and shove them in with the magazines. The cashier had to tell her to give the bag of chips to her.

    [quote=TicTocDragon;1224274
    Fake family get togethers[/quote] I would agree. Sad to say, but there are some family members I can survive w/o seeing.....but it's cool.

    I don't like wrapping gifts. My wife is absolutely obsessed with wrapping gifts - she loves it - and she makes FABULOUS bows, I might add. Me? I'm a tape freak.

    Re: What do you hate about the holidays?

    Hands down for me it's missing my family. I live about 3000 miles away from them and when they call during the family get together on Christmas Eve it always makes me cry.

    Followed by having to hear from my inlaws. It's the only time of the year when any of them bother to call my husband and it makes him very sad. In addition to the fact that they have once again "forgotten" about their youngest grandchild's birthday for the 4th year in a row (my son's birthday was 12/19). I don't get those people.

    Same here. Other than my parents, most of my family lives far away.

    I also dont enjoy wrapping presents, but I love watching my kids open them.
