Tis the season… that’s what they say. And there are plenty of great things that come with Christmas. However, it’s not all great. I don’t want to come across as Ebenezer Scrooge in this, but there are some traditions and events that need to go. Now most of these lists that I’ve seen have kids as one of the worst things about Christmas. Couldn’t disagree more. As a parent, I love when the kids come out Christmas morning with the biggest grin of the year. Even if I don’t get all of the credit I deserve. But I digress. If you don’t like you family, then obviously spending time with them isn’t going to be something you look forward to. People who complain about these things are miserable (in most instances).
Christmas is great. The family time, time off work, and general feel of the day is something I look forward to every year. But it needs a facelift. Not so much a facelift as a fat sucking surgery. We need to do away with some of the outdated things that put a gray cloud over a great day. I have identified 6 traditions and events around Christmas that need to be done with. There is no science to this list. This is my list. With that being said, I provide a little bit of why these are the worst things about Christmas. Enjoy the list, and let me know if I missed anything. I am open to an edit after publishing. Here are the worst things about Christmas.
