This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
While the holidays are synonymous with peace, love and joy for many Americans who celebrate, the holiday season is actually filled with physical and emotional discomfort. In fact, 88 percent feel stressed when celebrating the holidays and the average couple will have seven arguments throughout the season, according to new research.
A study of 2,000 Americans examined the potential barriers to a harmonious and stress-free holiday and the topics and instances that often lead to the most stress and arguments, or “festive fallouts” during the season. Results revealed that working out where to spend the holidays (35 percent) and how much money to spend on gifts (31 percent) are most likely to spark a squabble.
The study, which was conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets, saw the top five things most likely to cause friction during the holidays rounded out with arguments over whose family to visit (29 percent), who cleans up (27 percent) and who cooks the holiday dinner (24 percent). The survey also found that more than 15 percent admit that participating in conversation with family and friends stresses them out. Fifty-six percent admit they have to bite their lip during the holidays to avoid arguments, and 64 percent report having certain conversations that are just off-limits. The list of conversation topics to avoid was topped by politics (68 percent), followed by delving too deeply into someone’s personal life (55 percent) and religion (47 percent).
