Find yourself wishing the holidays were over already? Well, thanks to a bug in the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, the month of December has been canceled altogether. Is Google the new Grinch?

A bug in Android 4.2 has deleted the entire month of December from the People app, which allows users to bookmark birthdays and other important dates on a calendar. Some users have found that the app strangely jumps right from November to January of next year.

Not surprisingly, the internet’s reaction was brutal. “Sure, the month of December can be expensive and stressful, but Google apparently has an app for avoiding it,” said CNET. A post by Engadget was even more scathing, noting that the bug “makes end-of-year birthdays even less bearable.”

There’s no timeline for a fix yet, but Google has indicated they’re aware of the problem and are looking into a resolution. In the meantime, at least now we don’t have to deal with the Mayan apocalypse on Dec. 21.
