Why the Holidays are a Time for Celeb Break-ups

Ryan Reynolds: Single for the holidays?

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron.  ‘Tis the season for celebrity break-ups.

Are the holidays to blame?

*This is arguably the busiest time of the year. Any relationship stresses that are happening can be magnified by everything else that you have to do during the holiday season.

*All the holiday events make you tired. When you are tired, you tend to have less patience with other people.

*Holiday time usually equals family time. If the person you are with is not someone you want to be with long-term, it makes sense to break-up with them before introducing them to your family or having your family get more attached to them than they already are.

*A “get out of buying a present” free card. Not in love any more? Don’t want to shell out the money for a gift? Then break up! Not that most celebs need to worry about this, but even they might not want to spend their money on someone who won’t be around much longer.

Have you seen a lot of break-ups during the holiday season? Or do you think it’s better to wait until the holidays are over?
