Yes, the holidays can be a jolly time. They’re also expensive, exhausting, full of weird relatives and pressure-cooker traditions. Here, the ten things that fry our tinsel this time of year:

  • Three days of cooking—30 minutes of eating.
  • Digging through mouse-infested boxes for the ornaments that Dad’s mom made in 1956 because he’ll freak out if they’re not on the tree.
  • The gift you inevitably leave on the kitchen counter before you get in the car.
  • Running out of tape at 11:28 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
  • Kris Kringles. Thanks for the keychain, random guy from Accounting.
  • Three words: Family. Holiday. Newsletters.
  • You once got a lovely silver picture frame, but never used it. So you regift it to your neighbor…only to remember with a cold blast of clarity that she was the one who gave it to you.
  • Fighting with your husband all the way to a holiday party, and then having to be fake and cheery all night.
