Anyone have any Funny Xmas stories

on Dec 07, 2011 @ 09:21 am

I didn't find this funny when it happened, but I do now.

One Christmas morning when my boys were about five and eight they came
running into our room to wake us up all excited that it was Christmas
morning. We rolled over and said did Santa come. My oldest speaks up and
says yes yes he did, you have to get up and open your presents now. At
the time what he said didn't click in when he said your presents and not
ours. Then the younger one spoke up and said we opened all of ours. Its
your turn to see what you got. I was so mad at the time and was ready
to ring both their little necks. They both new they were suppose to wait
for daddy to hand out the gifts, but for some reason this year they
took it upon themselves. My older son said yeah I read the names to him
so we knew witch ones were for us. My husband being the mellower one of
the two of us got up to find wrapping paper and box's all over the
living room floor even the poor dog was covered. Like I said I was up
set at the time because I enjoy watching them open their gifts and
seeing their surprised looks they get on their face's. Taking pic's of
it all and making the memories. Needless to say that never happened
again, but we get a good laugh about it now. Any one else have a good
Christmas story for us?

that's awesome! on Dec 07, 2011 @ 09:31 am

Oh Takoda, is it bad that I'm laughing with delight at your boys' ingenuity? I would probably be irritated too, but from the side it sure sounds sweet and cute :)

That's why I posted it, to give someone a smile today. And to hear some other stories.LOL

Recycled Boxes on Dec 07, 2011 @ 10:34 am

My parents always save boxes up for Christmas time to wrap gifts in. One year when my niece was probably 3 years old, my mom wrapped a toy she wanted in a cheerios box. Sitting there with a huge smile on her face my niece began tearing the paper off the box. Once she saw the bright yellow Cheerios box (she obviously thought she had been gifted cereal, as she was too young to understand it was just the box, and there was an actual present inside), she stared up at my sister, and burst into tears, looked around the room and said "I don't like Cheerios". The poor little thing. She was so confused! We all had a good laugh, and luckily she quickly discovered there was a actually a present inside the box! My niece is now 13, and we still laugh about it, and tell her that we're going to wrap all her presents in Cheerios boxes!

Good laughs on Dec 07, 2011 @ 10:46 am

Great stories ladies.

Takoda - I'd be so irritated if that happened to me but it's great you can all laugh about it now!

That’s a great story, I hope someone was able to get a pic of the look on her

I was more then irritated, I was so
mad that I wouldn't get out of bed for a good hour. I felt like Xmas was ruined
and the whole day was screwed up thanks to them. My poor husband kept coming in
asking me to please get up and open my gifts; he was trying so hard to make me
feel better. Then I realized as I was laying there that I was being silly to
lay there pouting like a child and the day wasn't done. I wasn't able to laugh
about that for a very long time, but it gives us a great laugh now.


Band-aids on Dec 07, 2011 @ 05:50 pm

It isn't really my story, my moms actually. She had wrapped all our gifts and hid them in the basement. She went to bring up our gifts on Christmas eve only to discover that all the tape came undone because if was so damp down there. She had to run around the house looking for stuff to close the presents with. She ran out of regular tape and used all the duck tape and wasn't finished so she used band-aids. We obviously didn't care to notice, we must have been just too excited to.

I don't have children, but I can understand. We always had to wait for my dad, and he really would draw it out, which was fun and I'm glad he stretched out the day. I imagine my mom would have felt the same way, seeing as it takes so much to "make" Christmas for kids.

That's funny, I never would have thought to use Band-aids. LOL I've had a few gift's come apart on me over the years too. One year I also had no tape left and didn't know what I was going to do. That is until I spotted the kids play glue sitting in my junk basket on top of my fridge. It was green, so it matched some of the paper. LOL After that I've always made sure to have more tape in the house then I'd ever need.

My mom's story... on Dec 08, 2011 @ 08:09 am

4 kids... small house... she used to get really creative about hiding our gifts. Only Christmas eve night when she was stressed to tears running around trying to find them. She would forget her great hiding places. And they were great... I never found my gifts. But then, there were times neither did she. She'd find one or two in the summer or even later. Its hilarious now, but my poor mom on Christmas Eve! I'd stay up really late wrapping for her as she'd tear apart the house.

Now that's funny!! on Dec 08, 2011 @ 08:40 am

I also have a really small house and have a hard time hiding gifts as
well. That's why I wrap mine as soon as I get back to the house with
them now. The kids find them and they know how many they're getting, but
they never know what's inside.

This also reminded me of another time. My boy's were still pretty little
and my husband had a hard time with them on his own when they were that
little. One at a time he was good, both together he was pulling his
hair out. Any how we had all their gifts left to wrap, it was Xmas eve
and we had to be at my mother's in two hours. I couldn't wrap every
thing with the kids running around, so I had him take them out
somewhere, but I didn't tell him how long to be gone for. I had
everything out on the dinning room table wrapping as fast as I could
wrap. That's when I started to realize I had a lot more then I thought I
had, witch only made me panic even more. About a half hour into my
frantic wrapping I hear the back door open up. Then I heard the kids
laughing. Its a good thing they both still needed help to take all their
winter gear off, or they would have walked in on me and seen everything
Santa was suppose to be bring that night. I made a mad dash to the back
door only to find my poor husband standing there all red faced and
already wiped out. When I told him he had to give me more time then that
his jaw dropped and just about hit the floor. I'll never forget the
look on his face when I told him he had to take both kids back out for
at least another hour. The poor guy slept like a log that night, but he
found out just how much work I did with the two of them everyday.


Love it! on Dec 08, 2011 @ 08:51 am

That's a great story... I seriously can picture his face. Even more... I can just feel your panic. I hope you clink some champagne glasses to that story this year :)
