Who’s Up For a Holiday Fight?

So many things come along with the holiday season.

For instance, how about all the delicious holiday foods and treats, Christmas related events, holiday TV shows and movies, vacation time, gifts and giving, spending time with family, friends and visiting relatives. And who can forget the annual holiday fight!

Two-thirds of people say there is no way their family will get through the holiday season without at least one really big argument.

Maybe this year it will be a little bah humbug blowout with a parent or sibling. Or it could be the annual Christmas clash with your visiting mother-in-law, sister-in-law or that whacked out Uncle you only get the pleasure of seeing during the most wonderful time of the year.

Whatever the case, most of us can’t seem to avoid a good old fashioned holiday fight around this time of year.

If you’re like most people, you’ll make it through Christmas morning just fine. Then by mid-day, you’re ready to put on a set of boxing gloves and deck somebody’s halls!

A new survey has pinpointed the exact time when fighting over the holidays is at its peak. And that time is…3:18 P.M. on Christmas Day.

Some of the more popular reasons that holiday fights breakout are:

  • Who gets to control the TV remote.


  • Who has to wash the dishes. (Or more like, who refuses to help do them!)


  • Cheating on board games.


  • What to eat for Christmas dinner.


  • How the tree and house is decorated.


  • Who has to cook dinner.


  • Really bad Christmas presents.

As we say in my house this time of year, “Peace on earth, goodwill towards men and to all a good holiday fight!”

Merry Christmas!
