20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

Whats one thing that erks you about the Holiday Season?

Mine is people who justify spending a lot of money on themselves or their SO/family by saying, "Oh it's an early Christmas present" to themselves or someone else. 

Example: My sister and her husband just bought smart phone for themselves a month early. She said it was an early Christmas present. Ugh. 

My opinion is if it's a Christmas present WAIT UNTIL CHRISTMAS to use it, give it, whatever. And using the excuse of, "Well I got it for a great sale price" doesn't cut it. You can buy something for a wonderful price and still have the self control to WAIT A COUPLE WEEKS or so. To me it ruins the surprise and the magic of the day. The day of Christmas turns out to be opening presents that you may have "wanted" but couldn't, "live without". 

Ok Your Turn!!!!

That the word is irk, to start.

Otherwise, I only dislike Scrooges and Grinches.

It's Christmas. Enjoy the magic for a month in the middle of the daily drudgery.

Santa. And the fact that I refuse to incorperate (sp) him into our christmas is rediculous. Or the idea my kids will only be getting 2 presents. Oh my!

The people that go in to debt just to buy gifts for EVERY SINGLE PERSON in their extended family and then complain about it.

The stores being so busy and no one having any consideration for others.

I don't like how extra rude everyone seems to be when you are out and about during the holidays.  It doesn't matter where you are whether it is at the grocery store or dept store or anything else unrelated everyone seems to have their rude as can be pants on.  It makes me sad ;(

The ungrateful people. I hate when people complain about not getting exactly what they want.

And when someone (its always my mother!!!) cannot tell you anything they want for Christmas but are out buying things for themselves... 0_o

And finally, the white elephants where people put in stupid crap that no one is ever going to use. If its a gag thing, fine. But I mean the stupid crap like straw glasses (yes, we actually got those one year)

No, like glasses that have a long straw coming off of each side so when you can put them in a drink and when you suck through the straw the liquid goes through the glasses....

When would you ever use those! And were supposed to do $15. We saw those the next week for $2 at a store. :-/ we bought a calendar and movie tickets for it.
