Strangely, this affects a certain segment of the population most around holidays. Perhaps the travel dangers, whether real or perceived, cause consternation; or unfamiliarity with strange surroundings (if one travels elsewhere on holidays) might be the operative spark. Whatever the causes, some folks simply don't want holidays to spoil their otherwise regular worry-filled days. At some point, the worry straws will break the camel's back, which is mean to the camel, I should say.
