Expectation vs Reality…Christmas Edition

Posted on Fun 37

I get really excited for Christmas. I totally build it up in my mind. I picture my husband loving every gift that I get him (in reality he doesn’t actually like gifts because he figures that if he wants something, he’d buy it, so what could I possibly get him that he doesn’t already have?), and looking really cute in the Christmas photos (in reality my hair is messed and I have bags under my eyes from lack of sleep)… you get the picture. The holidays never go as you’ve built them up in your mind.

Perhaps that’s why we have so many Scrooges and Grinches that would rather say Bah Humbug than Merry Christmas. But really, if we can just laugh over our silly expectations, we can enjoy the holidays.

Here are some hilariously true holiday expectations vs reality:
