“It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year”
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
– Andy Williams/ Eddie Pola/George Wyle
The Holidays are here!
With its picturesque, greeting card imagery of peaceful family get-togethers and children playing merrily around the tree, this season holds the promise to be the most wonderful time of the year. Yet for many, the eleven months between last season has passed too quickly, and most “wonderful” is more appropriately replaced by “craziest”, “stressful” or most “dreaded”.
The Imperfect Season
The winter holiday season provides the perfect storm for stress and anxiety. The days are shorter, the crowds are bigger, and time is fleeting. With year-end deadlines at work, parties to attend, gifts to buy and relatives to see, even the jolliest of us can turn into Scrooge.
Consumer Reports National Research Center found that 90% of Americans could note at least one thing they stress over during the holidays. I’m sure Canadians can relate as well. When it came to top holiday dreads, the survey found:
- Crowds and long lines: 68%
- Gaining weight: 37%
- Getting into debt: 37%
- Gift shopping: 28%
- Traveling: 25%
- Seeing certain relatives: 24%
- Seasonal music: 23%
- Disappointing gifts: 19%
- Having to attend holiday parties or events: 16%
- Having to be nice: 15%
