The time around Christmas that gets people stressed out. Can be used pertaining to the "War on Christmas". What family members feel, knowing they have to interact with each other this holiday. Going shopping in malls, and heavily populated places could cause this stress.
The moment I awoke on black Friday, I felt the Christress kick me in the ass. Megyn Kelly might have been experiencing Christress while blurting out "Santa is white".
