This Christmas – Avoid Silly Holiday Fights!

‘Tis the season to be jolly – if you’re single?

That’s not how the song is supposed to go, but as it turns out, December is the most stressful month of the entire year, for couples (Daily Mail).

It’s easy to see a few of these issues when you are in your 40′s – and even easier to see how a young couple in their early to mid 20′s – basically has no chance.

Money issues are fought over the most.  That’s NOT terribly surprising.  And if their are children involved in the Christmas equation, that just complicates the ‘money’ issue further.  Do you set a limit on how much you will spend per child?  What about how much you and your significant other are going to spend on each other?  How much on the in-laws, friends, etc.?  How much on food and alcohol?  It’s a lot to have to agree on.

Speaking of alcohol, it is never a good idea to drink excessively during the holidays.  That should be a no-brainer, but if you don’t believe me, check out this very handy list of “The Top 20 Triggers For A December Argument”.  That’s good stuff.

It is very easy to get too busy during December; at work, with kids, at different events during the season, in-laws and family visiting, etc.  It is ultra-important that you and your spouse always communicate, and also set aside that very needed ‘alone time’.  These are two of the five things that couples must do to survive the holidays (read more).

If the average couple really does get into four fights a day in December, then I’ve never been so glad to be single.

Actually, just make sure that your kids have a good Christmas – that’s all that really matters in my ‘NOT SO’ humble opinion.

Happy Holidays!
