‘Tis the season to be jolly—but a number of things zap the joy right out of Christmas for many people.

Crowds and long lines create the biggest holiday headaches. Just over 60% of those answering a “Consumer Reports” poll say it’s what they dislike the most about the holiday season. Other gripes:

  • 55% are aggravated by all the traffic.
  • 48% don’t like having to dodge aggressive or thoughtless drivers in parking lots.
  • 33% dread gaining weight.
  • 31% worry about over spending or going into debt.
  • 30% don’t like fake holiday cheer.
  • 19% don’t like shopping.
  • Seasonal movies playing repeatedly, season music and disappointing gifts also get a mention.
