Top Ten Worst Things That Could Happen On Christmas Day


The Top Ten

1 You walk downstairs and find out that there are no presents

Really, this isn't the worst. It would be very disappointing, but come on. At least you HAVE a downstairs. - pandagirl

LOL, Christmas is more than presents Seriously, Some families in the world don't do gift exchanging on Christmas they may do 1 or 2 presents MAX but they make sure that there Christmas isn't based on gifts & presents. Instead they base there Christmas on being Kind & Charitable. Instead of spending time with there family, They do voluntary work in shelters On Christmas day,

My little brother thought it was April fools day, I was still upstairs and went to the parents room, I didn't see presents their! My little brother said I was on the naughty list, but he knew we were upstairs and the presents were downstairs, and no doubt about it, he April fooled me

Um..may I say that if you didn't get presents there are 3 reasonable reasons why.. were bad
2.your parents couldn't afford it
3...well I don't know - Flutters-

2 Someone close to you dies Christmas morning

That would just ruin Christmas for you forever. - egnomac

Really number one is no presents, guess what I don't get presents only once I got two presents, would you rather have your sister die and get presents or get no presents but your whole family is still alive

This should be number 1. Like, seriously people?! Would you rather get no presents rather than have, for example, your mom or dad die?! Also, I apologize for my bad English. I hope you can understand what I am trying to say.

There will always be material stuff out there to buy and give. But once your relatives are gone, they can never be replaced... - Gg2000

3 Your house catches on fire in the morning

In the middle of winter?

It never snows in some places. So this would make sense if it happens in those places. - TheFourthWorld

That happened to my mate on Christmas Eve during the night me wake woke up and could smell smoke, she told her mum and in the kilt he there was a fire... Everyone was okay and so was their living room with presents and tree in but their kitchen was black because of the smoken

Hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot

Not in the morning, but it often happens because of the sparklers and candles - Alkadikce

4 Your mum has an affair with Santa Claus

That's what the song "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is about.. - ethanmeinster

That's... I don't know what that is!

Oh... Gross. I guess if you've had the santa talk then you know this won't happen.

Santa isn't real and stop saying it's gross god this website is full of babies - Demon_Kitty

5 Your younger sibling gets loads of presents and you get almost nothing

That happened to me. My sister got an iPod, my brother got an Xbox One, and all I got was a cheesy shirt! After I found out that the shirt was all I got, I was so furious I threw my shirt into the campfire, told my mom and dad they were the worst parents ever, slammed my door, pounded the wall, and got grounded for two weeks.

That was a little bratty thing to do, but I see where you'd be coming from. As a child, that would be disappointing.

My younger siblings usually get more than me, but I get more expensive things like phones, tablets and computers so that makes sense. - ToptenPizza

I don't have a younger sibling, but my older sister actually gets more than me. Also, when my entire family has a party, my little cousins get hundreds of presents and MAYBE, if I'm lucky, I'll get five.

Every word in that describes every Christmas for me. My older sister gets thousands of presents and my little cousins get millions of presents, yet here I am with two presents. - CatCode

This happens to me all the time :(

6 You die

Dying would be a lot worse than not getting the presents you wanted

This will only happen if you play with your present extremely dangerously, or if you commit suicide

Dreadfully sorry to whoever died on Christmas. - Garythesnail

Okay, what's worse? No presents or dying. Presents are good, life is supercalifragulistocexpualidocious. I don't care about presents as much as life, that's just wrong.

7 Your presents are stolen

The robbers balls would face my foot

That's why you need to set up a trap in your yard in case the Grinch or robbers try to take your gifts! Remember to do that after you hang your stockings, put out cookies for Santa, and put reindeer food out before you go to bed on Christmas Eve.

If that really happened I would be seriously pissed.

I heard a story about two brothers that got a puppy as an early gift, and the puppy got kidnapped, and they refused to open their presents until their puppy came back.

8 Your little brother breaks all your gifts

After that your little brothers neck will be broken - Harri666

If I could have my own world then it would have no little and big brothers/sisters so nobody would be annoyed and the presents are fair on Christmas Day.

If a little kid broke all my presents, I would be so PISSED! That's why I don't share new gifts with people!

Does this include little sisters to?

9 You get Nicki Minaj CD'S

Imagine if your wish list includes the good stuff like The Cure - Disintegration, Cheap Trick at Budokan, Elton John - Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player...
Then suddenly, you unwrap The Pink-print and your parents blast "Anaconda" on repeat, no matter how much chaos you cause in the backyard because you didn't get Disintegration.
Oh, the insanity.

That would be hell on earth.

I thought this was merry Christmas, not gae Christmas

Lol - JPK

If you add thousands/millions of pounds of pressure, you can turn coal into diamonds. - CatCode

You will be rich when coal runs out - Harri666

Whatever. I can use it for camping. - NoOreoForU

12 You get a laptop for Christmas, but you accidentally smash it

My sister got a tablet for Christmas and broke it while brushing her teeth1

One time I got a tablet for Christmas and the next day it broke - idontknow

Great, I need to pay the insurance for having holiday spirit and not paying attention about how wild I was

This happened to me. But I didn't smash it. It's just really slow. - NoOreoForU

13 You get something you already have

I could just sell it to Goodwill or start my own yard/garage sale.

What's so bad about this, you can get the same Lego figures and make a gang with them

That happened to me once. I got a Lego game in 2008 and got the same one again two years later.

Happened before. Not that bad.

14 Santa strangles your mom to death

This is the worst because not only would your Mom die, Santa would be ruined for you.

This item is rather random - Harri666

The one who sings dreary songs and the one who beaten up the lovely Rihanna!

Just be because its old time, wow

Who's Chris Brown?

I love chris brown

17 You get Big Brother on DVD

I got the complete series on DVD

Who keeps putting all these big brother ideas on this list? Oh hi there bigbrothersucks

18 You don't get what you really want for Xmas

Why can't people understand that all I want is a few new picks and a new capo for my guitar!
I even got an iPod touch one year, and I was like, "Okay... thanks, I guess"
My sisters, who both wanted one, were internally raging.

It's cool sometimes. Because I got a Wii U when I wanted a skateboard now excuse me but I am gonna enjoy my Wii U

I just want something like a Mac Book Air and my parents said that they don't have enough money. They day after I asked for a laptop, they bought a new SPORTS CAR!

Too bad just be grateful - LootLlama

19 You Get a Mouse Trap

The only use for it is that you can use it to kill off those pesky mice in your basement.

Doh, I mean Game!

Not to be confiused with the Ever-so-popular board gmae!

20 Going to school on Christmas

If that were to actually happen its either you're principal is Jewish or is really heartless

Worst thing about that question that will never happen right

Don't care what the schools say, I am not going on Christmas. - Garythesnail

Wait what? please don't make me go to school! - Demon_Kitty

21 Roast dinner preparing disaster

If it burns, go over to your nearest KrustyBurger, Disguise it as your own cooking and enjoy! (Steamed Hams)

22 There is no Christmas

Think about what Christmas represents, and then think of a world without it. Did you know the two opposing sides refused to fight, and in fact celebrated together on a Christmas Day in WWII? (It's true--look up Belleau Wood)

Really, I thought we were talking about when it is Christmas

This should be top 1, not in the direct middle of the list.

I'm sorry, but the 'truce' between England and Germany happened during the Christmas of World War One.

23 Being told Santa's not real

Well I never eat my dinner on Christmas, but I still have holiday spirit, so it's ok

27 You get a Barney DVD
28 You fall down the stairs and when you wake up you realize your entire family has been turned into Beliebers

It would be a nightmare to meet Justin Bieber in real life.

She already ruined Christmas by twerking on Santa.

Eww! On Christmas day too?! Gross! >o< - Gehenna

40 You Get CD-i Games

The Zelda games on the cd-I look really creepy - Harri666

Unless you're making YouTube poop with the cd-i

Actually, Sonic Adventure series are crappy & so is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.

41 You Get E.T. The Extraterrestrial for the Atari 2600

I would actually like that because I want to see how bad it is, but it would still suck because I don't have an Atari 2600
