Christmas used to be a horrible time in our house - my mother would go completely over the top trying to make everything "picture perfect". Not because it would be nice for the family, but so that people would think well of her (she was obsessed with making sure she appeared to be the perfect wife/mother to other people - while she was in fact a terrible mother; obviously I can't comment on what sort of wife she was!)
I've been in charge of Christmas for over a decade now, and she still thinks I'm not doing it right, and spends most of December screaming at me randomly over something she thinks has to be done... Last year she went berserk because I hadn't bought any bread sauce. What the chuff is bread sauce?! I've never eaten, made, or bought it, in my life!
It's almost a relief that she now has mild Dementia and isn't paying too much attention!!

Here are some cartoons for your Christmas Cheer, Corcaigh:
