10 Times "The Grinch" Perfectly Described Your Emotions During the Holidays

That time of year, the best time of the year, has arrived: the holidays. With Thanksgiving just around the corner and then Christmas to start preparing for, the holiday season is pretty much already in full swing. Soon we will all be blasting "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and casually wearing Santa hats to class. However, with the holiday season comes a variety of emotions, most of which can be described by the one and only Christmas legend: The Grinch.

1. When the holiday season first starts and everyone is way more enthusiastic than you.

The minute Halloween is over everyone starts breaking out the Christmas music, but you just want to enjoy the rest of fall before it starts to get too cold. Plus, Thanksgiving is coming up, and it's not fair that everyone forgets about it. Then you hear Mariah Carey's voice reverberating out of every car on earth so then you start to get in the spirit too.

2. Having to interact with every family member on your entire family tree.

With holidays comes multiple family get-togethers constantly. This always makes for some great conversation, but also some really awkward ones too. No, I don't know what I want to do with my life yet. Please stop reminding me.

3. Having to put together so many different outfits.

With all these parties you are attending over these two months, your wardrobe is really pushed to the limits. You will never be more frustrated with the clothes you have until this time of the year, so thank God for all the sales to buy myself more stuff.

4. When you go home and see all the people you hoped you would never see again.

Nothing says Christmas cheer like awkwardly avoiding people.

5. When you constantly are eating throughout the holidays.

There is so much food during this time of the year. Everywhere, all the time. We have Thanksgiving, and then eat all those leftovers for two weeks. Then the Christmas parties begin, eat those leftovers...Christmas dinner, eat those leftovers. It's an absolute constant cycle of calories, fat, and carbohydrates...and I wouldn't want it any other way.

6. Realizing how broke you are after buying everyone gifts.

Being a good friend is really hard. Now I don't have enough money to eat. Good thing I have these leftovers...

7. Thinking about all the things you're going to put on your Christmas list.

Of course the best part of Christmas is spending it with the people you love, but anyone who says getting presents isn't up there is a total liar.

8. When you get woken up while you're on holiday break.

I have no stress, please let me sleep until noon like a normal person. I would greatly appreciate it.

9. When you procrastinate your holiday planning for way too long.

Sorry, I was distracted by all my Christmas music.

10. When it is actually Christmas, AKA the happiest day of the year.

Everyone is happiest on Christmas. It's a wonderful day spent with family, gifts and love. Enjoy the day. It only comes once a year, so cherish every second. The roller coaster of emotions is always worth it in the end. Because "Maybe Christmas, he thought... doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps... means a little bit more!"
