But really it isn't. We've done the feast several hours ago, and since neither my wife nor myself has a lot of family left living (at least in the immediate area), me and mine are often left to our own devices fairly early on holidays. In a way, it's nice, because our holidays aren't so hectic.
Anyway, while on on the subject of The Human Condition (I was?) Vox Day has a couple of excellent posts you should read. Warning, the first comes with a spew alert.
On the Battle of the Sexes: The annotated misandryst (Jeeze, look it up!)
On being married: Mailvox: sleeping on ice
Neither are too serious--just the thing for a holiday evening read.
