Holiday gripes, what drives you crazy?

Consumer reports survey finds top holiday gripes


DETROIT – 'Tis the season to be merry and bright, but some holiday habits can still drive people crazy. The Consumer Reports National Research Center polled holiday shoppers recently. It found about 90% say they look forward to the holidays season, and about 80% say they expect the holidays to be as happy or happier than last year. Those results are full of good cheer!

However, there are still some holiday rituals that can drive people crazy. For example, 61% said they don't like the crowds and long lines. Bad traffic bothers 54% of those polled. Respondents could offer more than one answer, so the percentages exceed 100%.

Other crowd DISpleasers!

34% Gaining weight

31% Getting into debt

13% Seasonal music

12% Having to attend holiday parties
