12 Days of Christmas: Day 8 {Least Favorite Thing about the Holidays}

Day 8: Least Favorite Thing about the Holidays

I love this time of year. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! I love the lights, the glitter and glam and the happiness that accompanies the month of December, but I loathe....
Traffic

I hate the traffic that magically appears immediately after Thanksgiving and disappears after New Years. I mean, where have these people been hiding for the past 11 months?

Traffic is especially worse around the malls or restaurants in the Memphis area. You can't seem to go anywhere. Don't even try venturing out on the main roads during the weekends. It's literally bumper to bumper. And Memphis is known for it's fair share of bad drivers.

I am usually in the Christmas spirit, but the moment I hit traffic, I say, "Bah Humbug".

What is your least favorite thing about the holiday season?

Haha! I guess that is one benefit for living in the sticks, we don't really have to worry about traffic :)

I've said the same thing too! I've always wondered that.

Totally agree with you on the traffic. Living in Atlanta, all these people drive in from who knows where thanks to the shopping, and it is just UNREAL! Makes me want to scream, then cry, then hide in my house.

I guess something else I hate about the holidays would have to be the reindeer antlers and Rudolph noses people put on their cars. Seriously people?!
