If you've been eating leftovers and catching up on Netflix in your pajamas these past few days, you may be experience the post-Christmas slump. After all, the week between Christmas and New Year's can become a giant blur as you pass the time at home, but for 2020, it may not feel so different from the rest of the year. If you're feeling like you're stuck in a listless limbo, you'll find yourself right at home with this year's tweets about the week between Christmas and New Year's. Thankfully, you can get through it by laughing at all the "funny because it's true" takes people on Twitter have to offer.
The week between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 is often when people describe time as seeming to pass more slowly than usual, since it's easy to get lost in the days after all the holiday hustle and bustle — even if it was all virtual this year.

If you're feeling stuck in a time warp during this strange week (or more likely, year), you are definitely not alone. Take a look at these tweets that capture the unique experience of this 2020 holiday limbo.

Now that the 2020 version of "the week" is finally here, some people don't really notice a difference from the rest of the year, which is quite a change from years past.
Even though 2021 might not be quite so different come Jan. 1, you can at least bid adieu to the double time warp known as the week between Christmas 2020 and New Year's.
