    Ya know that feeling that something just isn't right and you forgot something, then you fall asleep and wake up choking then realise Santa may have left something in the car. Well I just had that.

    Worse then that iis the sudden questioning in my mind of is it too late to get it? Then deciding to risk it only for my footsteps to clumsily tackle the stairs, the house alarm to announce it is now unset in a loud authorative voice, while I try sneaking to the car in a very silent street. This is accentuated by the beep of the car alarm unsetting, the slam of the boot reset of car alarm and sneaking back hoping that no one woke up peeped out a window and thus Christmas destroyed.

    I'm now in bed again wondering if coast clear.

    All done. My son doesn't believe in Santa anymore but I'll still leave the presents under / beside the tree.
    Santa brought me a Giant bike 17 years ago. Still use it - the best of gifts :)

    Santa's been and brought the present for the wee lad. A VR headset. Unfortunately, because Santa didn't tell me to set it up before giving to him, the 45 minutes it's taking to set it up , connect to wifi etc, is causing a ruckus .
    I had asked and warned about this but no, it would be fine.:(

    My "babies" are 26 and 23 years old and I would still do up a stocking for them including a chocolate Santa.

    This year they can't get home. The youngest is with his girlfriend in her aunt's in France and when he arrived last Friday the aunt had a chocolate Santa sitting on his beside locker as his gf had told them he always got one.

    We are doing a zoom call soon to open gifts with family in France, Scotland and dotted around Ireland and he will discover a chocolate Santa for him and one for the gf in the box of gifts I posted over.

    Really organised yesterday, me and the wife bagged all the presents in black bin bags by child and hid them in the garage. Midnight last night when the kids were asleep I passed them into the wife in the kitchen who simply had to empty them out - job done. However somewhere between the garage and the kitchen a stray black bag made it’s way into the mix and as I came back into the house ready for a nice glass of vino I was greeted with an emptied rubbish bag of vegetable peelings, bits of meat and assorted mush all over the living room floor. Balls!!!

    Santa is after coming. No wonder the floor is so sticky.
    Not only was Mammy kissing Santa Claus, she was doing it doggy style with him.

    Well, it's time for me to pass the thread to someone else, my crew no longer believe so the effort is no longer needed.


    It's been fun sharing our Christmas eve setup but I'm sure someone here will take up the challenge.

    Many thanks.

    I have a 3 week old so it’ll be a few years before I can take up the mantle 😂

    Ah Congrats Loughc, best Christmas present ever, enjoy your first Christmas with babs.🎄

    Aw this was my very favourite thing on the internet!

    I didn't even take a Santa's gone photo as it's pretty boring looking tonight with just a stocking filled up as most of the gifts are small. Tablet, Switch Games, etc. Got this just after he arrived though.

    And a big congrats on the baby Lough. You have so much fun in store over the coming years.

    Love seeing thread every year 👍 too early yet for Santa where we are



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,977 ✭✭✭wyrn


    @Mech1 I know Santa retired but surely there must be one photo for us. I look forward to this thread every year.

    Sorry everyone for bumping it

    Santa doesn't wrap presents. He gets what you asked him for and leaves it at the end of your bed or under the tree.

    Family members wrap their presents because it's a surprise.

    What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 12,915 Mod ✭✭✭✭iguana


    He's just been and gone here after the fastest falling asleep ever on Xmas Eve.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,977 ✭✭✭wyrn


    I love the wee train set around the tree. You know what they say, the fastest falling asleep, the earliest waking up!
