If you're going to be doing any holiday travel, you stress level is only going to increase. According to a new study of 2,000 people, this holiday travel stress will make people get into arguments 12 times over the holidays. It could be a fight with your partner, child, friend, family member, or that random jerk that cut you off in traffic going into the mall.
