Ahhh. Christmas Memories.


At a family gift exchange a few years ago, I was excited to open this present from my brother and his girlfriend:

Happy Holidays from the Christmas Bunny!

"A rabbit! Ours broke! We needed one of these!" I exclaimed.

How did they know? I thought. This is the best Christmas present ever. It's so awesome how we're all grown up now. Maybe my brother really knows me after all, or at least his girlfriend knows what's what.

With joy and excitement, I looked at my new boyfriend. This was his first family event.

His eyes grew wide.

Awkward silence.

Confused faces.

"Ohhhh! It's for wine! It's a wine opener."

"Yeah," my brother said. "You guys like wine, right?"

"Um, yeah. We drink wine. Um, this is great. Wow. Thanks. We could really use this."

With relief, we moved along to the next person's present.

I guess my brother doesn't know my tastes that well after all.

What is your most awkward holiday memory?
