Taking Everything Down RIGHT After Christmas
From a former Redditor:
It kind of makes me sad by how abruptly everything is over with. My mom goes all out with decorations for Christmas, and growing up it made the house feel so warm and full of excitement. Then, we'd take it all down right after New Year's and the house would feel so empty and cold when it was brought back to normal.

The Pressures Of Gift-Giving
From Redditor u/Cheese-n-Opinion:
Pressure to get gifts right (and therefore spend) is the only bit I really don't like. I usually have a fantastic idea for one person in a particular group, and then struggle to match it with everyone else in that group. I get properly self-conscious too worrying if the gifts are any good.
