Cool Holiday stories?

I just thought this thread would be fun to see if anyone has any funny or cool mishaps or stories during any holiday! Anyone want to share any Thanksgiving stories? Any turkey disastors or crazy uncles at dinner? (Come on, EVERYONE has a crazy relative!) Or, you can just say happy holidays! Let's see if this thread will catch on or not!

One Christmas, I accidentally sliced my hand open while cutting a bagel and it bled for hours. Not funny, but horrific.

Another time, my friend's grandma realized she had left a glass pan in the oven with the Thanksgiving turkey, and in her hurry to get it out, she put it in the sink. My friend wandered over, noticed the pan was hot, and ran cold water over it. It SHATTERED.

One time, our class did a secret santa. We gave each other candy or stuffed animals, stuff like that. Luckily for me, I got the class clown as my secret santa (sense the sarcasm?). Guess what I got? 1 can of tuna, 1 bag of those mint lifesaver things. Packaged in a Tropicana orange juice box. Still can't get over it...

.:Remi:.

When I was in college, many years ago, lol, our dorm did secret santas. So I had been talking for weeks about getting a tape of the album Get Lucky by the group Loverboy. Well, I get a card from my secret santa saying something like you never know, you might "get lucky". I made a few comments that maybe my secret santa would get it for me for Christmas as my final gift. Well, guess what? When it came time to reveal secret santas everyone got something BUT ME! I complained to someone in the restroom later, not knowing that my secret santa was also in the room. She chewed me up one side and down the other that she made me something and she wasn't going to give it to me because I was expecting her to give me that tape. I told her I'd be happy to get whatever it was that she made me. That girl was a real flake.

Speaking of Crazy Uncle. When I was younger, my Uncle Rannie (who is my favorite, he used to tell me he ate cats, and the orange ones were most tender) brought 2 large garbage bags of gifts for everyone at Christmas time. He lived away so it was always a huge thing. Well my cousins ended up taking the garbage out to the curb. On Christmas Day we searched high and low for the two bags of gifts... guess where they were?? Apparently I got a Barbie Watch and back in the 80's, that was cool lol

Christmas is my favorite, mainly because I have kids and I love seeing their faces on Christmas morning. My favorite holiday before them was Halloween. I love the paranormal side of things.
