You may know a friend or co-worker who like the Grinch, fanatically hates Christmas. Who would pick eight-hour long buisness meetings over Christmas with their family any time. Maybe you are one of those people yourself. While you do like to spend time with people, you do not like to spend time with the ones you are going to spend Christmas.
Perhaps you dread the remarks of your overly critical mother. Hate sharing a table with your father-in law, who is king at subtly offending people. Fear what will happen if Uncle Willy can’t handle his booze again. Get silently mad at Grandma, who always excuses his terrible behavior.
If any of this applies to you: Some of your family members are being dicks.
