The day after Thanksgiving starts the official Christmas season for me. Let me be totally honest - I LOVE CHRISTMAS AND IT'S MY FAVORITE. In the past few days, I have trimmed trees and decked halls and strung more lights than you can count. I have listened to a million holiday songs and watched Christmas movies with my kids. It's great! But there's a certain degree of holiday amnesia that I experience every year, not unlike the amnesia that women are supposed to experience around childbirth. Because Christmas is not all snowflakes and smiley time. It's a lot of work, and there are some aspects of it that are kind of a pain in the parts. So I present to you, the 9 most annoying things about Christmas that I always forget. - By Julie Miner
