Christmas traditions that should really die now

Christmas is all about tradition: the tree, the presents, Santa Claus and, if you're so inclined, that Jesus fella. But just because we've been doing it for so long doesn't mean that it's still a good idea. Some things are good: Christmas specials, family dinner, lights on trees, filled stockings, midnight mass, tinsel.

Other things? Well, they can go to the Island of Crappy Holiday Ideas. (Hell, there was an Island for Misfit Toys, so really, this isn't a stretch.)
