Every single year, we get a reminder about the most popular day to be dumped
According to this article, December 11th is the most popular day for break ups. They used data from Facebook to determine the date, and that seems to be the magic one. Reason being? No one wants to buy a present they don’t want to be with. December 11th is far enough from Christmas, that you don’t feel AS guilty. Also, with January being the start of a new year, it is also a chance for a fresh start and a new chance for finding love.
The expert in the article also had a few suggestions for couples (who are staying together over the holidays)
-Make time for YOU: Sometimes having your space invaded during the break can be overwhelming.
-Set Gift Expectations: If not, you risk over spending on someone who may not do the same and actually spend/give a lot LESS than you did.
-Easy on the Booze: Relationship or not, mixing alcohol at a holiday get together COULD be a recipe for disaster.
