SAD is also an acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder, a very real and painful condition exacerbated by the enforced jolliness of this most...wonderful time...of the year.

Many loathe the Holiday Season because they are alone. They curse your name as you trundle to and fro, arms full of presents intended for your horde of friends and lovers. When you're feeling particularly full of Christmas vim, look around. You'll see them glowering at you from the shadows, jealous of your light.

This one screams "I hate Christmas. I hate happy you and your happy Christmas charade and your happy Christmas face." Definitely play this one at the family party where you'll no doubt be surrounded by "loved ones" (who, oh by the way, misunderstand and abuse you for the other 364 days of the year).

No doubt a nickname given to this month of Mistletoe and Tinker-Elves by those who have no one to kiss and no one to give presents to. Never forget: They are legion.

It's tough on the streets. You might have a 12-foot Tanenbaum in your suburban living room, but some guy out there in the scary city doesn't have a place to sleep and cringes every time he hears the throaty warble of a caroler.

Hum Bah-Bug!

I've done retail sales for 15 years and business to business sales for the last 16. In both cases, Thanksgiving to Christmas is the time of the big push, crunch time, make it or break it, year over year growth...and so on.

Happy Holidays from the company and be prepared to get off to a fast start in January.

Considering I am also the one who has to do the traveling on the Holidays, I usually view holiday activities as an additional set of tasks that are expected to be squeezed into less time and energy than I usually have anyway.

My distaste for those who claim Christmas is now a secular holiday is only matched my distaste for those who claim Dec 25th is the celebration of the birth of Christ.

It's not that I don't like Xmas music, but since it starts playing on the radio around November 20th, I'm mighty sick of it long before it all ends (around January 2nd).

I gave you a list of what I wanted.

I made it real easy for you, with lots of ideas and options.

Maybe your older sister bossed your younger sister's kid around, and that started it off. Maybe your mother is a control-freak and tries to micro-manage every aspect of the gathering, causing others to chafe. Maybe there was too much rum in the egg-nog. Whatever the case may be, family fights are a regular feature at Holiday Gatherings the world over.

You can't get anywhere from Thanksgiving to Christmas because everyone is shopping.

You won't be going anywhere on Christmas Eve/Christmas because everyone else is also trying to go somewhere.
