  • Ugh! Me too!They were always fun when I was younger, now -- not so much. I suffer through them though because just as I had fun as a child, now is my daughter's fun to enjoy "family holidays."

  • Expectations, the past, unspoken competitions, resentments, guilt.. I could go on and on.

  • They were hard for me when I was younger, but as I age they get easier and easier. I am only anxious about them when I have to go and see family for them now. If we are staying home like we are this year it's a piece of cake for me.

  • Because like me, my family is hard to deal with. Trust me, I have a sister who is super lazy, and think everyone has to pay her rent, pay everything for her. She even need us to help her kids get Easter things...sad, very sad.

  • Probably because your family sucks, much like mine does...
