It’s Christmas time again and the usual war on Christmas has started up. Nativities are being taken down by atheists, crosses are being replaced with ‘holiday trees’ and on it goes. But a new poll out there raised some eyebrows when 45% of Americans said they’d rather just skip Christmas. And in some respects, Glenn agrees – why?
Christina Cheddar Berk explains, “Some 45 percent of those polled said the holiday season brings so much financial pressure, they would prefer to skip it altogether. Almost half said their level of stress related to holiday expenses is high or extremely high.”
But as Glenn, Pat, and Stu pointed out their wives are often stressed with all the holiday shopping and preparing meals for the large family gathering. They had some suggestions for their wives (WARNING: Spouses will probably not like it if you use any of these suggestions).
(Don’t read this Jackie) “Just start sooner, and get your work done on time,” Pat said. “If you would start around the 22nd you would be done by the time Christmas rolls around.”
(Tania isn’t going to like this one) “Stop your belly aching. Start your dinner. Get it on the table, and start your talking later,” Glenn suggested.
“You probably aren’t talking down to her enough when you explain it,” Stu said. (Sorry Lisa!)
