What do you find to be the most painful about the holiday season? Is it the same dozen songs repeated over and over and over? the rampant selfishness and consumerism? The inability to park at the store on weekends? What part of the holiday season brings out the Grinch in you?

I totally agree! There never has been a war on Christmas and it really does add tension to the season.
I would be inclined to agree - it's a free for all for retailers and puts so much pressure on people to consume stuff they don't need.
One of my coworkers starts Christmas shopping in January. He buys 1 or 2 gifts each time he gets paid to spread out the expense.
I'd prefer that too over doing it all at once. I don't have a large extended family though and I limit my gifts to only my parents, kids, husband and sister and I try to spread it throughout the year.
I'm an Amazon prime member so I do this too. I'd rather take a beating than go to a mall lol. I also will sometimes shop immediately after the holiday season to get things like paper, craft supplies etc on clearance for the next year :).
Ugh I hate that too, and it's like Thanksgiving barely gets a mention since we go from Halloween to Christmas
