I often feel pulled. My kiddos have 3 sets of grands and 3 great grands. I hate cutting their time with one family, to run to another :/

I voted family stress, but its not really stress. Its the noise level with 10 kids in the house! I love Christmas afternoon because my kids and their families eat brunch and open gifts Christmas morning before rushing off to their in-laws.

I don't dread anything.  I never have-even when we didn't have much money.  Then, I just shopped the clearance sales all year.  I got a ton of presents for very little money.  Now, I just love everything about the holidays.  It can always works out if you plan (like buy stuff for next year on clearance the days after Christmas.  There is no excuse.)

 OK....None of the above.... I love the holidays...and I love the "holiday stress" much better than "executive work stress" LOL

Need an option that says:  "I Love the Holidays"

The idiotic rivalries between my siblings. We're all in our 30s and 1 is almost 30 yet there is always some bullcrap fight going on..

I guess for me...I don't like the food. Not because of weight gain, but because I don't eat meat and all that other unhealthy stuff my family cooks up.

I dread not having my grandmother around to enjoy the holidays with. We still end up at her house (she had my aunts and uncles promise they wouldn't sell the house) to celebrate. But it'll never be the same even after 8 years that she's passed
