Christmas Expectation Syndrome


At Chicago this week I am spreading the word on Christmas Expectation Syndrome:

Every year around this time you start to see the signs appear. Stony faces, firmly clenched teeth, tight lipped smiles and short, curt answers. It can quickly escalate into snarky responses, bitchy attitudes or angry outbursts followed by long periods of silence - permeated only by the faint sound of angry huffs and snorts. What am I talking about? Christmas Expectation Syndrome. It's closely related to wedding madness.
Do hop over there and tell me about the crazy expectations in your house?
