Ah, the holidays ... the mistletoe, candles, eggnog, chestnuts roasting on the open fire ... the FIGHTS. The stress of the holidays can cause arguments about everything from who to celebrate with to how much to spend ... Sigh.

YourTango.com identified the most common fights between couples this time of year. Here are a few ...


The mother-in-law fight. His mom hates your cooking -- he says she's just being helpful.

The money fights. From throwing a holiday party, to who to buy for, to how much to spend. Ugh! Try agreeing on a budget, then see where that takes you.

Travel fight. Whether you missed your flight because someone wasn't ready, or have to figure out where you're going in the first place and how you're getting there...travel is bound to spark an argument.
