Try Not to Laugh at These Christmas Fails
Christmastime is the best time of year. It's also the most chaotic, and you know what? We love it. Toppling trees, elf fiascos, and trips to the ice rink gone wrong are all part of the fun as long as no one gets hurt.
These relatable Christmas fails are a mix of heartwarming, hilarious and concerning. If you can get through them all without cracking a smile, you're related to the Grinch for sure.
Elf On the Shelf Is More Violent Than We Remember
What does Elsa have to hide from Santa that inspired such a heinous crime? Poor Jingles deserves better.
We Like Christmas Too, Kid
No one correct him. This is way more entertaining.
Christmas Is a Good Time to Find Out if Your Neighbors Like You
And test out how quickly 911 responds in one go. We'd be more worried if no one on the block bothered calling. That's a pretty lifelike decoration. Genius, really.
That Awkward Moment Your Prank Goes Horribly Wrong
Pretty sure Buddy the Elf didn't mean to shatter a restaurant window. Once he did, he totally missed the opportunity for a perfect punchline: Hand the unsuspecting diners a bottle of syrup through the broken pane.
Ice Rinks Over the Holidays Are Pure Chaos
It's always the people who are the worst at skating that have the most confidence, and we're not mad about it. We get to laugh at their expense. If that's not festive, we're not sure what is.
This Isn't a Christmas Fail, Actually
Quite the opposite. This kid gets it. With enthusiasm like that, he instantly earned a choral music scholarship and a pass to ride in Santa's sleigh. Fine, maybe he's not destined to be an opera singer, but he's going places. Chaotic places, but places.
And This One Is Just Plain Sweet
That's a little mean on the parents' part, but you can tell this little girl is being raised right. Instead of throwing a fit for not getting a present, she paused in a moment of confusion, then jumped straight to a bear hug. That rates 10/10, and is definitely on Santa's nice list. Now give that kid a real present, stat.
Okay, This Is Worse Than the First Elf Fiasco
Christmas, a massacre. Jingles, gone. The children, devastated. The dog, full of plastic. Ho ho hopefully, mom snuck an identical elf into the house the following night and concocted a Christmas miracle. Closer to the original Christmas story, tbh.
Deck the Halls With...Yourself?
Dad, get it together. Those are not the boughs of holly you're supposed to be decking anything with. Calm down.
Ah, Memories of Christmas 2020
When we all celebrated in isolation, and it still somehow ended up feeling like this. Glad that's over, knock on wood.
It's the Comments for Us
Ho ho oh no. At least Charlie Brown got a real tree. For a fake tree, you'd think
We Always Wondered How Santa Trained for Chimney Hopping
When you have that many houses to visit in a single night, you don't have any time to waste. Get that plyometric training in, Santa. Clearly, he still has a long way to go before he's ready for Christmas Eve.
Angel Number Two Is a Vibe
We'd have liked Sunday school way more if it came with this energy.
Pretty Sure Grandma Didn't Request a Heart Attack for Christmas
She seemed to be thrilled after the initial shock wore off. All is well that ends well, but maybe skip the jump scare next year.
They're just trees. Nothing to see here. Maybe stick with decorating pines and firs from now on, however.
