So 'tis also the season of skyrocketing sales and explosive tempers.
It's become such a problem that psychologists have even given it a name — "holiday rage."
What was once annoying and then aggravating has now escalated to full-on anger. And the shopping season has just begun. From over-the-top, blinding Christmas lights to annoying relatives and all-out meltdowns, we've all have our moments around the holidays, when enough is enough.
I don't know. When I was growing up, I'm sure my parents got stressed out, but I never really saw them go into holiday rage.
They weren't big drinkers, but sometimes the spiked eggnog did raise their voices over politics a little bit.
I can't help but think that maybe ABC had other things they could have reported on other than Holiday Rage. Like, I don't know, the war in Iraq, corruption in government, Brittney "damned" Spears.
Maybe ABC needs to report on something like this that Cuppa found.
(Sidenote: That picture never gets old and yeah, I'm being snarky.)
