‘Tis the season for chopping down Christmas trees, attempting cute family photos, stringing up lights, and all kinds of other seemingly harmless but festive activities. In reality, the holidays are ripe with opportunities to fail, and fail hard.

From putting the star on top of the tree to trying out new gifts, there’s always a way to biff it! Moms, dads, siblings, even cats and dogs are in on the fun. Or, rather, they’re in on the fails, and we get to be in on the fun.
