"Bah Humbug!"

A survey of Americans finds that most of us “dread” something about Christmas. In particular, 28 percent hate shopping for gifts (68 percent worry about having to wait in line to buy them, and 37 percent “abhor” getting in debt over it), 37 percent worry about gaining weight, 24 percent aren’t looking forward to seeing relatives, 23 percent hate the seasonal music, and 16 percent hate going to holiday parties. “For all the chatter about nostalgia, family fun and gift giving this time of year,” summarized Tod Marks, senior editor of Consumer Reports magazine, which commissioned the survey, “many people don’t like too much of a good thing.”

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
