Annual Meltdown – Watch for It

I have observed that during the last three weeks of December
the psyche of – well, everyone – kind of runs off the tracks.
Is it Holiday Stress?
Economic Anxiety?
Ancient Childhood Traumas haunting us?
Too much awful Mall Music?
Sugar Overdose?
Visiting Relatives?

Or maybe that old standby, All of the Above.

Regardless, I hereby predict that many of your friends and relatives
will become strangely neurotic, cranky, and difficult –
not to mention stark raving mad –
at some point in the next few weeks.
Plan on it.

What or who is the stressor for you in December?
