Failed festivities! People reveal hilarious mishaps that prove Christmas is not all good cheer
- People revealed the funniest holiday mishaps that were caught on camera
- One joker put fairy lights on a dirty pile of laundry to liken it to a Christmas tree
- Another shows a restaurants’s attempt at a festive pancake poster gone awry
From a collapsing ginger bread house to a Santa Claus unfortunately placed on a bridge with a sign about jumping, the jolliest time of the year can certainly be a cause of awkwardness too.
People from around the world have shared the funniest festive fails they’ve spotted – with the very best collated in a gallery by Parent Influence.
One free thinker gave up on a gingerbread house and turned the disaster into an abstract art piece. Another wacky shop employee mistakenly exchanged ‘santa’ with ‘satan’ on a display of stockings.
Elsewhere, a store in the US wished customers Greetings Seasons after putting a light-up sign the wrong way around, and a bright spark tried to distract from the pile of dirty laundry outside the machine by turning it into a Christmas tree.
Here, FEMAIL shares some of the best examples…
After trying and failing to compose a well structured gingerbread house, this architect thought ‘stuff it’ and went with the flow
And a Cherry Mistmass to you too! This US store got its sign terribly wrong, but at least customers probably get the idea
While the pancakes are surely delicious at this San Jose restaurant, the managers might want to have a little think about where they place the syrup next time
First of all, no, please don’t! At least not off this US bridge. And secondly, get down from there Santa, you have a job to do!
You’re not fooling anyone! This lovable rogue from a US household thought that laundry could wait but Christmas festivities certainly could not
This US store either has jokester employees, ones who don’t pay attention to detail, or genuine Satan fans
What could be more useful than these bell shaped bells from a Spanish store at Christmas time you ask? How about some holly-shaped holly for once
Actually no, this US store didn’t make a mistake, this bauble is actually for houses with gymnasts who spend a lot of time upside down
Oh Paris… You do realise your attempt as a minimalistic Christmas tree actually looks like a— you know what, never mind, what a lovely tree
Perfect for the naughty list! What no child wants to wake up to under the tree when they asked for a new computer game!
Ah yes, the universal language for ‘I want to get dumped and have coal in my stocking please Santa’
Instead of ‘shatterproof’ for these US ornaments, perhaps ‘here for a good time, not a long time’ would have been more fitting
