    Christmas may be a joyous occasion, but it's also the one holiday known for it's madness. What do you do to avoid losing your mind/temper around this time of year?

    Visit a lot of different people outside my immediate family. Overnight reunions w/ friends and fratbros are particularly relaxing, and allow us all to unload Xmas tales on a friendly audience. There are reasons why we moved away from home, after all.

    Wrong!

    It is not the only holiday known for its (not it's) madness. Holi, which is celebrated in India, surely is madder. Check it out.

    I simply refuse to participate in any of it. It *is* madness. Especially the commercial aspects of it all. My only observance is lighting some candles and having a drink on the Winter Solstice.

    ^EXACTLY! People need to take charge of their lives and simply refuse to participate in the things that cause them angst. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!

    When you come to think about it, the whole caboodle is a publicly sanctioned and encouraged period of consume-fueled 'happiness' in your life. Most people can hardly afford even that one holiday season to start with. So the guys get majorly worked up about the bottle of champagne and a big meal? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Try working towards reaching a state when none of this matters at all. If you can have a big meal, champagne and a few gifts that you crave on any day of the year, all the drama disappears.
