Top Ten Hardest Things About Winter Holidays

The Top Ten

Making a Christmas Wish List

I know, for some people, they want everything, right? But all I want is my own room, hot cocoa and something to help with my hair.

Mine is easy. I want lots of money, vacations, school supplies, food, and lots more!

I'm very lucky to live in Australia because I celebrate Christmas in Summer.

Socializing with Family

Parties can be boring sometimes cause no one really talks to me.

How do you talk to your family? It's so hard

Other People's Breaks Don't Line Up with Yours

Some people are out of school by the 10th of december and are back 15th of january. Others are out from the 20th of december and back on the 20th of january
others like me, are out from the 12th to the 30th of December. They won't evwn let us celebrate New years!

Family Members Sleeping in Your Room

So... for two nights I had to sleep on the couch becuase my grandparents were in my room. That's not fair! Like I understand they're old but Can't anyone else? They're retired, my father is unemployed, but I... have a dan TEST the next day.
Yeah. That's right. A child with her finals the next day gets a cold room on uncomfortable couches and only gets 5 1/2 hours of sleep!

Not on winter holidays, but in my family is is more common during spring break. When I was 12, I had relatives coming from CA sleeping over at my house during spring break, they slept in my mom and sister's room, my mom and sister moves into my room, and they kick me out of my bed and made me sleep on the floor on a thin piece of foam!

Holiday Spirit is Easily Ruined

Holiday spirit begins in november so in the amount of time between then and new years, there's plenty of time for tragedy.

I got a plush Shiba Inu as an early Christmas gift from one of my aunts this year, and my mom didn't prove of me "requesting" for it :(. She did eventually accept it.

COME ON, IT'S A CHRISTMAS GIFT! >:(

Giving Other People Gifts

I'm giving two of my friends band shirts because that's all I can think of. If people don't say what they want, it's so hard!

Gift Giving for School

When I was in high school, my special ed teacher forced us to do the secret santa thing. We had to pair up with a random student, ask each other what they want for Christmas, and then we all went to Five Below and bought the stuff. Then we had to take the stuff home, wrap them, and give them to our partners.

I missed school the day they did the secret santa, so my only choice is bring chocolates for the person and hope they aren't allergic

School

True. I couldn't even help my dad put up the Christmas decorations because of how much homework I had.

Like, there might be vacation homework orwork to catch up on school, but Test Week is literally in December, which is NOT COOL

The Same Music

If I hear Santa Baby or All I Want For Christmas Is You one more time, the next sound coming from my radio is it's explosion.

I Hate the music

Why can’t the radio play more “Home for Christmas” by Hall and Oates? That song is awesome! :(

*ahem* A list of all christmas songs
All I want for chritmas is you
last christmas I gave you my heart
twelve days of christmas
Little drummer boy
Silent night

Costs So Much

No wonder Scrooge was... well, a scrooge on Christmas before he was visited by those three ghosts.

The tree and the ornaments, the food, the hotels for all the family members who aren't in your bed ETC

The Contenders

Decorating is a Chore

We don't decorate for Christmas

It's Stressful When People Visit

My friend has some friends coming over and her mom is being a bit strict. Putting a lot of pressure on her
