Christmas Coal

Every parent loves to see the joy on their children’s face as they open all those Christmas presents. We plan for weeks, shop for hours and pry information out of our secretive kids. We just want to give them the perfect gift. We want to see their faces glow with excitement. What’s better than a kid on Christmas?

Until they’ve opened three articles of clothing in a row. Then, all of a sudden, that joy turns to extreme disappointment. No matter how much it breaks our hearts, sometimes our kids just aren’t thrilled with their holiday haul. And while it’s sad for the parent who feels like they let their little one down, those kids and their disappointment are actually kind of hysterical.

Here are some of the best lines I’ve heard over the course of my eight holiday gift exchanges. Better luck next year guys.
