The annoying things about holidays

I know I promised vacation pics, but that means I have to go through all 230 of them and choose them and do all the blog stuff we have to do with the pics before I even post... so that looks like it will be a project for this weekend.  But I do want to talk about something that happens the day after Thanksgiving and I am not talking about the psychos who go shopping for deals and end up punching people in the face.  I am talking about all the little annoying things people do that drive you bonkers because it's not just one friend doing it, it's all your FB, Twitter, Blogger and Instragram friends who are doing it.

  • Taking pictures of their red Starbucks cup.  NOBODY CARES. It's just a cup that happens to be the color red. It's not made out of gold people.  Put the cup down. 
  • People who complain that stores shouldn't be opening earlier for Black Friday and that it is such a shame, but on Black Friday they post their shopping bags and how they got an awesome deal. Because of YOU they keep opening up earlier! ugh.
  • Christmas tree pictures. I get it, it's an exciting thing.  But after I see my 10th Christmas tree picture I want to throw up.  But then when you get to the 30th picture, then you realize how some people think their tree is oh so pretty but it looks like Christmas threw up all over it.  
  • The super duper creepy Elf of the Shelf.  I understand that it is a "learning" tool for kids, but that shit is so effin creepy that I wouldn't want my child to think that their is some doll in the house that does things on its "own".  I swear that Elf of the Shelf thing is going to stab someone in the middle of the night, BECAUSE IT'S CREEPY.

I posted a pic of my christmas tree and when we start with the elf on the shelf you better believe I will be posting pictures of it too. Maybe I will even text them to you daily! YES I WILL!

My future kids do not get to have Elf on a Shelf. I find something inherently wrong with teaching your kids that they have to "be good" for 30 days because an elf is reporting to Santa. They should be taught to know to be good period.

I HATE elf on a shelf. It's soo damn annoying. You best believe when my tree gets decorated tonight I'm sending you a pic direct! I'm guilty of #2. I go out on Black Friday, but my problem is the Thanksgiving openings. Anything earlier than midnight is not acceptable to me.

i don't mind the xmas tree pics, gives me ideas for how to decorate my future trees!

but the elf on the shelf needs to stop right now.. i agree with Britt. just because the "elf" reports to santa they need to be on their best behavior?? um no.

when i was a kid, I visited santa and was a good girl "this year" so just stop it already. those stupid elves.

Elf on the shelf freaks me the hell out. We told Allyson that Santa had a magic snowball and was watching through that. She was a wild child so we used on her that all year long until she was six. LOL
I like the Christmas trees but I agree that after a while it's like, ok I get it, you have a tree. I did not post a pic on mine because it's down right sad looking. If it was pretty, I'd share.
I never understood the coffee shop up photos...

Welp, I'm half guilty for the red Starbucks cup and Christmas tree. But in both instances, I was in the picture with another person so maybe that's only half a bad?!

I did a post this time last year about Elf on a Shelf. Freaking creepy ass elf! I'd be scared of that thing if I was still a kid ,
