Are the Holidays Already Stressing You Out? Survey Says.

With Christmas decorations appearing two months before December and the onslaught of stores hyping up Black Friday shopping, it's easy to feel stressed out about the winter holidays long before they've even arrived.

You may not see it right away, but the holiday season can make dents in your life that go far beyond your bank account. What about your relationships, eating habits and even how you plan to change yourself in the year ahead?

It's no shock that relationships can definitely be strained over the holidays. According to a recent Yahoo! holiday survey, 51% of respondents said that money is the leading cause of conflict with their spouses during the holidays.

And as your extended family members plan their visits to see you over the winter break, you might want to keep these thoughts in mind:

-One-in-five respondents report having their sex life negatively affected by visiting relatives during the holidays.
-Fifty-one percent of respondents said they have lied to avoid spending time with family during the holidays. Thankfully, only 4 percent said they've broken up with a significant other to avoid bringing him or her home over the holidays. Talk about bah humbug.

When it comes to finding the right gifts, survey respondents said the most difficult people to shop for are mothers and fathers, followed by significant others. Also? Respondents said they spent the most money on presents for their kids. Interestingly, respondents found it is more difficult to shop for family of the same gender.

What are you eating over the holidays? With 30% of the votes, pie is the guilty pleasure of holiday foods. When it comes to booze, women prefer cocktails while men prefer beer and spirits.

And if you're one of the 30 percent eating too much pie (or drinking too much booze), we bet you're already making promises to yourself about the year ahead. Guess what? You're not alone. Thirty-six percent of respondents said they resolve to exercise more in 2012, and 24% said they would try to lose weight.
