You probably lost/alienated a lot of friends these past weeks and chances of having a peaceful Christmas family dinner are looking slimmer by the second. You got stuck in traffic, yelled at the TV, yelled at your Facebook feed, were worried about well.. everything, considered all possible doomsday scenarios and regardless of where you stand, for one glimmering second you felt both hopeful and desperate.
