I love Christmas just as much as the next person but there are definitely some things that suck about it. These are the things people usually don't talk about because they want to stay in the Christmas spirit. Here are some things that absolutely suck about Christmas.

1. Pretending to like relatives you haven't seen since you were a newborn

"AWWWWW you've gotten so big!!!!!" they say. You just want to walk away but you can't. We all have these relatives.

2. Getting kisses on the lips from old people.

Your breath stinks, you're wrinkly, and you pinch my cheeks.... No thanks.

3. Fruit Cake

Enough said.

4. Not having a gift for someone who unexpectedly shows up

This is awkward even though you probably didn't want to give them a gift anyway.

5. Snow

Either you live where it snows and it sucks or you live where it doesn't snow and can't have a white Christmas and it sucks.

6. Spending tons of money

Come on, who likes this? I love shopping, but spending? Not so much.

"Yes grandma, I absolutely love this light up sweater"

Okay, so maybe I REALLY love Christmas, but you have to admit that these things do suck. Whenever you think of Christmas, think of these things too. Just kidding, enjoy the Christmas season. Happy Holidays.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

Flickr/John Henderson

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
