For those harnessing anger and prefer a physical form of therapy to cure loneliness, look no further than your local bowling alley. That’s right, when verbal bashing of the holiday just doesn’t cut it, how about rolling a 12 lb. ball into a set of 10 perfect pear-shaped pins, and then watch them collapse at your mercy. Beat that expensive gift-buying and fancy dinner-eating lovers.
