Everything gets a little more chaotic during the holidays. Even though it’s theoretically a time to slow down and be with loved ones, it can also feel like time speeds up and gets stressful. And, despite your best efforts, you can inevitably fall short of having a picture-perfect holiday.
But fret not! We have all, at some point, failed during the holiday season. We’ve tried to make an unforgettably delicious pie that’s a crumbly mess. We’ve tried to get the family to pose for a picture that always ends up with someone blinking, looking the wrong way or even crying. Needless to say, there are infinite possibilities for unforeseen disasters just waiting to happen and turn your holiday fun into a holiday fail.
Here are a handful of some of the funniest — and most relatable — holiday fails others have shared on social media. After all, if something is going to be frustrating and put a damper on the day, you might as well post about it, so someone can get a little enjoyment out of your misery. These hysterical posts are guaranteed to make you laugh or at least prepare you to avoid similar predicaments this holiday season.
