Holidays: A time to whine and complain?

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

It's the most wonderful time of the year -- or is it? With the holidays come the gripes.

Scenes like one from a Walmart on Black Friday may be at the extreme end of the spectrum. But plenty of people say other people's manners or lack thereof is a big holiday peeve.

Pushing and shoving is just one on a long list of things people find annoying at the holidays.

Also on the list: oversharing all those holiday moments with your friends.

I turned to Twitter and Facebook to ask some of my followers what annoys them most over the holidays. No surprise I got a lot of responses. Among my favorites: tasteless Christmas cookies and Christmas songs are played over and over and over.

Grandma can only get run over by a reindeer so many times before she makes us want to scream. Right?

Whining also seems to ruffle feathers at holiday time.

Just remember: 'tis the season to be jolly, not cranky.
