Do you have one of these?

Someone in my family is a "grinch" every year as Christmas time. He tries to spoil the moods of everyone around him. It's gotten to the point that I actually dread Christmas because of him. He doesn't like putting up a Christmas Tree or anything related to it. He even tries to spoil it for my kids. Do you have someone in your family like this, if so, what do you do?

  • I have a drama queen in the family. The holidays just arent the same and she looks forward to getting disappointed I think. She wont look at the bright side of the holidays. It gets rough and it stresses my son out to be around all that.

  • LOL my husband is kind of the grinch. Makes it worse because we don't really have other family around to celebrate the holidays with, so getting into the spirit of things isn't always easy. Last year he finally agreed, last minute, to put up a tree. (He hates the mess, but dislikes plastic trees. He thinks the kid's just gonna pull it down. Etc.)

  • I don't, but how awful. Is this family member very close or someone you can kinda avoid during the next couple months? I wouldn't want the negativity around during such happy days!
