According to a survey two thirds of families will fight over the holidays, and according to that same survey, there is a peak time for those fights too.


If you're like most people, you'll make it through  Christmas morning just fine.  Then by mid-day, you'll be on the verge of LOSING it.

A new survey pinpointed the EXACT time when fighting over the holidays is at its peak.  And it happens at 3:18 P.M. on Christmas Day.

Two-thirds of people say there's absolutely NO CHANCE their family will get through the day without at least one solid argument.  Here are the top eight things we fight about during the holidays:

  1. Who gets to control the TV remote.
  2. Who has to wash the dishes.
  3. Cheating at board games.
  4. What to eat for Christmas dinner.
  5. How the tree should be decorated.
  6. How the house should be decorated.
  7. Who has to COOK dinner.
  8. Bad Christmas presents.
  9. Oh and the big one this year...fighting about politics.

So make sure you are out of there by 3:18 or passed out drunk on the couch....Wow, I am such a problem solver.

What about you? Does your family always fight?
