For some reason, a lot of people decide to send their exes texts during the holidays. Even when the breakup was awful and one side (or both) have made it clear that they want nothing to do with the other person.
I’m here to say that’s probably not a great idea…some things should just be left in the past.
Just stop it. Okay?
These tweeters definitely have some feelings about this topic.
1. Sure, why not?
should I text my ex on christmas to remind him of the time he dumped me on christmas three years ago over text and then I had to give away all of his highly personalized gifts

men will break your heart and make you cry for 6 months non stop then text you “happy thanksgiving, thankful for you” at 2:39 am the day after Thanksgiving

3. Annual traditions.
Now that I’m lit, you can officially start all of your Christmas traditions! Play holiday music, get in arguments with your family, text your ex and wish them a happy holiday "just because." Whatever your traditions may be!

4. Don’t bother.
A message to all my ex flames: if you’re thinking of wishing my a merry Christmas this year….

5. Who are you again?
My ex sent me a message asking me “you can’t even wish anybody a merry Christmas or a happy new year”
My reply “ I don’t even know who the f*ck this is?”

6. Who do you think you’re talking to?
I remember one year my ex message me ‘Merry Christmas to you and yours’ knowing very well there was no ‘yours’ pic.twitter.com/XfMEhoFmdU

7. That’s a shame.
I didn’t get a toxic thanksgiving text. I’ve lost my touch.

8. Twelve is a lot…
Holidays always give exes an excuse to text you. “Happy thanksgiving, thankful for ya!” Like, you weren’t thankful for me when you were sleeping with 12 other girls, thank you, next

9. Wow! Dragging their own child…
Up to now, the parents and siblings of both my exes message me during the holidays (and other momentous events) to extend their love. ♥️ Establishing a good relationship with your partner’s family is always a good thing.. esp after you break up.
I will haunt you forever. ? pic.twitter.com/zvWSR56YaD

10. I think not.
Is it really a holiday if your ex doesn't text you a sentimental I miss you message

11. Let’s go through it all over again.
ex’s love to use the holiday season as a reason to message you and try to ruin your life all over again

12. A vicious cycle.
y’all wait until the holidays to find an excuse to text your ex ? lmf*oOOOOOOOO I do that every other weekend at 2 am, we are not the same
— salad (@defnotsally) November 29, 2019
13. Probably a good idea.
drink more Jell-O shots than times you text your ex this holiday weekend

14. NO WAY.
My ex that cheated on me texted me this morning and said “new year, new us?” And I said nope

Repeat after me… just say NO!
Don’t engage. Just ghost them, fam! That’s all you need to know.
Still… what do you think? Got any great strategies for keeping the exes at bay?
