This Video Nails What The Holidays Are Like With Divorced Parents

Talk about a scheduling nightmare.

When you grow up with divorced parents, the holidays are complicated and then some. Sure, you get two Christmases (double gifts? Yes, please) but you also spend half the day running around from one house to another.

"Every single year, no matter whose house I'm at, I get a call from the other parent being like, 'It's 11 o'clock, did you leave yet?'" one woman says.
