The holiday season has snuck up on the American consumer once again, and rather than feeling completely overwhelmed by travel plans and last-minute shopping and the millionth playing of ‘Jingle Bell Rock,’ almost half of the population simply wishes we could just skip Christmas altogether.

According to a recent survey by the people at Think Finance, about 45 percent of the American population says that, due to the stress and financial strain that comes with attempting to bring joy to the world and goodwill toward men, they would prefer to simply say, “Bah humbug!” to the holidays. Incidentally, the same survey also found that nearly 45 percent claim they do not have adequate-enough finances to cover the cost of the holidays.
