Steve Zodiac: Lets summarize:1) Fights to visit distant relatives.2) Fights over money and how and on who it is spent.And, from the article, a main concern for reason #1 is the cost of visiting relatives and friends. So really the cause of Christmas fights is.....Money.
Stone Meadow: Since my wife and I don't do any of those things, we don't ever fight.
Great Justice: I have often found the poor and less financially fortunate to be more appreciative of Xmas, while the wealthier tend to get more stressed. I think it is because giving things that really mean something and having them be really appreciated by the recipient provides more benefit to the giver than having the value of those things in the first place. On the other hand, people who get gifts for those who already have too much stuff will have a harder time finding a gift that actually has any serious value to the recipient, and the price of such gifts is generally greater, meaning there is a greater possibility that the benefit of the possession of the value given will be greater than the benefit of the act of giving./sociology of Xmas is fun
