Chrissues can also manifest themselves physically and mentally resulting in cravings, somatic symptoms, rashes, nausea, vivid dreams, hallucinations and excessive wrapping.
Although most inhabitants of North America exhibit Chrissues, they are psychologically healthy. Chrissues signs can be seen in November & December, but these are usually too mild to interfere with holiday-to-day living. Emo teens, early adults and people who just hit 30 are usually in peak years for the onset of Chrissues, but they have been known to affect the elderly as well. Mood disorders such as candy cane depression, bi-polar bear disorder and strand-lights syndrome are related disorders. Ex-mall Santa's between 45 and 59 make up 40% of Chrissue season suicide cases.
