30 Unfortunate Christmas Fails That People Just Had To Share Online

Published 3 years ago

The holidays rarely go as perfect as we we’d like them to. There will always that one meal that didn’t turn out quite right, the package that was late or the relative that couldn’t make it. But don’t let that ruin your Christmas – laughing at the whole situation is a much better approach.

People online are sharing their most unfortunate Christmas fails, and we can’t help but find them pretty hilarious. Terrible gift wrapping, unfortunate presents, and not-quite-successful gingerbread houses – see all of that and more in the gallery below!

#19 12-Year-Old Set His Lawn On Fire After Getting Magnifying Glass For Christmas

Christmas Day was memorable to say the least! My twelve-year-old son Cayden, who is an avid reader, an honor student, and interested in science, asked for a magnifying glass for Christmas. (It’s like a basketball player asking for basketball shoes.) We thought it was for reading, but instead, he tried to see if he could light a fire with it! We discovered that he and his two brothers went out on the driveway to see if they could burn a couple holes in some newspaper. Everything was under control until the boys came running into the house telling us that a corner of the lawn was on fire and the Christmas lights were melting! Justin and I rushed outside to see the entire front lawn turning black! We grabbed buckets, turned on the hose and sprinklers, and I grabbed blankets to smother and trap it – before it could spread any more into the neighbors’ yard! What a sight to see – a bunch of people running around crazy trying to put a front lawn fire out while wearing matching Christmas jammies!

I want to reiterate this was an accident. It could have been worse but it wasn’t. So instead of a tragedy, it will now be a Christmas to remember! 2019 – The Christmas lawn lit on fire. Oh and never buy a magnifying glass for your son!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
