It’s so easy to become stressed out over the holidays, even if you don’t have a social anxiety disorder. I blame a lot of this on the commercialism and hype on having the ideal holiday, at least here in America.

I agree that consumerism has a huge role and has really become what the holiday signifies to most people, and that’s not a positive change. I think the amazing debt some people accumulate during the holidays also contributes to stress even after the season has passed since they need to actually pay it off! Quite a vicious circle.
