When a boyfriend/girlfriend dumps you right before Christmas because they are too cheap or too uncommitted to buy you a Christmas present. It usually occurs between Thanksgiving and will last until February 14th.
Roger : I'm sorry, but things aren't really clicking between you and me right now, with all this family stuff and all. I hope you understand. I need some space. It's not you, it's me. I'll call you after Valentines day.
Me : (I've just been Scrooge dumped!)
