Teaching How to survive your annoying relatives this holiday season

How to survive your annoying relatives this holiday season

Social allergies are a lot like seasonal allergies. They’re annoying, exhausting and hard to avoid. They’re also especially common around the holidays. That’s because the holidays put you at a high risk of exposure. Swap the dander and ragweed for your not-so-favourite acquaintances and relatives and there you have it — a full-blown case of social allergies.
