    Blatantly stolen from the M&S advert, add yours! :)

    Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...
    Mum banging about at a ridiculous time to get everyone up
    Someone getting a truly awful present
    Someone getting a doubler present (my gran got four pairs of the SAME slippers last year :haha:)
    Something that doesn't get cooked and then someone remembers it halfway through the meal
    Spilling gravy on your new clothes
    My gran getting drunk :blush:
    Phoning round everyone first thing and waking them all up to see what they got

    I'll probably think of more later!

    :rofl: at gran getting drunk!

    Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...
    Stress of getting shopping done and what to buy everyone.
    Hiding gifts and making sure your kids don't see them before and after they are wrapped.
    Lots of money spent.
    Stress over finding a parking spot at the mall.
    Finding time to wrap the gifts without the kids watching.
    Less sleep.

    And for that one week, worries are put aside and everyone is loving. Reality comes back after New Years.

    Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...
    *Eating far too much.
    *Watching my dogs open their gifts and get way too excited.
    *Watching bad TV shows.
    *Falling asleep early.

    Some things I miss about my old family Christmases. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...
    *My sister talking about poo when we sit down for dinner.
    *Feeling my Christmas gifts on Christmas eve.
    *Everyone talking loudly at once so that no one really knows who is saying what!
    *Swapping the Christmas cracker gifts with each other so each person ends up with the same thing ever year.
