Not everyone had a strange, solo, homebound Christmas this year. Some people managed to somehow still spend the holiday with their families and have a relatively normal Christmas, a.k.a. a stressful one that got ruined by someone's crazy behavior.

2.) From riverofdenali:
My mother got belligerently drunk, locked herself in the closet, and claimed she was going to end her life. Then she vomited and my Dad and I were trying to drag her into her bed. She then proceeded to get violent with me and kicked me in the face.
