After the presents are opened and after familiarity has bred a fair amount of contempt, all I want to do is get away. It’s not fair, and it’s not always possible, but that’s the truth.

Is that just me? Gosh, I hope not.

It’s not that I don’t love my family; I surely do. It’s not that I don’t want to see them; I surely do.

Do you have an after Christmas down? What do you do to pull yourself through?
