Do You Do These Holiday Faux Pas
People are judgmental. You’re judgmental. I’m judgmental. If you think you’re not, then you’re oblivious or you haven’t lived long enough to become judgy. During the holidays you see a lot of people, you have large gatherings and dinners. You’re bound to see or commit some sort of holiday faux pas. A survey of 2000 people was done to see what percentage of us are guilty around the holidays. We’re going to look at a few of them. Maybe you’re only guilty of 1 or 2. That’s not bad. Some of them are worse than others though.
10. Not wrapping Christmas gifts – 7% of respondents do this. I don’t really have a problem with this. Yea wrapping is nice, but if it’s for your brother do they really care? My brother once wrapped my gift in duct tape. That was a pain in the ass to get open. I remember the duct tape, but not the gift.
8. Not Catering to vegetarians/vegans – 9% or respondents are right. Get this nonsense out of here! This list was obviously created by a vegan who has been burned at a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Do you know how much work goes into one of these large gatherings? If this is your choice of diet, that’s fine, but you can’t expect the host to take one eater into account to Bring your own tofu turkey or vegetables that an animal didn’t look at.
3. Undoing pants at the dinner table – 20% of respondents do this. Really? I thought this was a Christmas movie joke or myth. I eat a lot and have never had to unbuckle my belt or pants at the table. If you’re notorius for this, why not just wear something elastic.
4. Wearing a cheesy/ugly Christmas sweater – 26% of people have done this. A large number because this is fun. Now some sweaters aren’t really good for family gatherings. Someone once gifted me one that just says Balls on it and has 2 Christmas ornaments, not really what I’d wear to a dinner. I have and will wear my Clark Griswold christmas sweater though. Everyone has seen that holiday classic and gets the joke of the sweater.
For the whole list head on over to the Daily Mail.
