Overview

Holiday Mayhem - How Not to Kill Your Family During the Holidays.

War Zone
You know how it is. The Holiday season brings out the best in all of us.
We all become solicitous of one another’s feelings; everyone develops more tolerance for one another’s foibles; there is plenty of time for everything that needs to be done; traffic is usually light; the other folks always patiently wait their turn. Isn’t that right?
Now, don’t you look at me like that! What do you mean, “What planet am I from?” In fact, I think you had better stop looking at me like that right now or I’ll give you a bit fat knuckle sandwich! You know what… if you don’t like what I’m saying about the holiday season, you can just leave right now, and don’t let the door hit you in your big fat… umm, well, and okay I’ll admit that I may have overreacted a bit. Again.
Hey, I tried. I did my best, but I bet you find the season as trying as I do.
I’ll admit it; I’m one of those people who find the holidays inordinately stressful. Can I go home and bury my head in that comfy quilt now?
Hide from my children, and my guests, and the in-laws, and… No?
You mean that we’ll have to get through this together?
Then I suppose we’ll need some “coping mechanisms”, which is a high
fallutin’ psycho-babble way to say, “how not to go psycho and kill folks
that we generally care about most of the time”. Yes, this year we’ll probably need ways to maintain our sanity, most of our dignity, and maybe even a bit of the joy that we are supposed to be taking from this time of the season.
I know, I know, there is no way in the world that we’re going to manage to do this! We’ve tried to manage this before and it never seems to work out like we’d planned for it to. There is NO way that this season is going to be any different than all of the others, or is there? Might there be a way to get through the season without mayhem?
