All of us who just started 2015 on the wrong foot.
All the electrical devices that never thought they’d live this long.
All the people who went back to work and realized that their colleagues can’t cope without them.
All the people who were third wheels at midnight.
All the unlucky people whose neighbors decided 2015 was the year to tell the truth.
And all the ninth wheels of the world.
And all the people working hungover the next day.
And, finally, this kid’s parents.
Anyone who just seemed to lose their way a little.
When it’s Christmas morning and Santa came.
When someone says they hate Christmas.
When you’re waiting for someone to open your Secret Santa present from you.
When your parents have friends over and you really, really don’t want to have to talk to them, but all the food’s downstairs.
When your friends leave town for Christmas.
When you really, really want to start opening the presents under the tree but your parents say to wait.
When you’re watching Love Actually with your parents and it cuts to the simulated sex scene.
When you meet your cousin’s girlfriend for the first time and you’re all like, “Her?”
When it’s time for lunch but you have to wait until everyone’s been served to start eating.
When an elderly relative starts telling you stories you’ve heard five or 10 times before.
When someone asks you what your new year’s resolutions are.
