Christmas Eve: Expectations V Reality

christmas eve
Every year it seems to creep up on us faster and faster. But hey, it’s the most wonderful time of the year after all! Sometimes our plans for the holidays don’t always go to plan. We tend to overly romanticise Christmas as a coping mechanism to deal with the total nightmare it can be at times.  

Christmas Eve morning

 

Expectation:

 

Reality:

As you lie in bed and tentatively sip your delicious coffee it suddenly dawns on you that you forgot to buy your lovely aunt Abigail a present. You run out the door in the direction of the nearest shopping centre.  
   

Shopping

 

Expectation:

 

Reality:

Yeah it’s just as awful as you had anticipated    
   

Wrapping Gifts

 

Expectation:

Reality:

You’ve gotten three paper cuts and urge to scream. It’s time to unwind and wrap the presents in the car tomorrow.  
 

Food preparation

 

Expectation:

 

Reality:

Why did your mother bestow you with the task of preparing the turkey? Does she secretly dislike you?
   

Christmas Drinks

 

Expectations:

A few glasses of mulled wine, surround by close friends sat next to a roaring fire in the local pub. Bliss.  

Reality:

You and the girls decide to over indulge in a major way – it is Christmas after all!
