Holiday Gift Stress

Love’s Arrow Flies North

| ON, Canada | Romantic | December 24, 2013

(My wife is sitting next to me working on a crossword puzzle.)

Wife: “Cupid’s team-mate, five letters.”

Me: “Satan.”

Wife: *glares*

All I Want For Christmas…

| Denver, CO, USA | Romantic | December 24, 2013

(It’s Christmas season, and I’m shopping in a department store. An elderly couple is also shopping nearby. The woman goes off to look at something in a different section. The gentleman sneezes.)

Me: “Bless you.”

Elderly Gentleman: *looks at his wife* “It’s already been done.”

Love Can Move Mountain (Books)

| Jasper, AB, Canada | Romantic | December 24, 2013

(It’s my fourth Christmas together with my boyfriend, and we decide to open our presents to each other simultaneously. We’re both huge outdoors geeks. I’ve bought him a guide on the history of Canada’s national parks that I found one day, and knew he’d love. We don’t ask each other what we want for holidays to keep the element of surprise.)

Boyfriend: “Alright! Ready, set, go!”

(We both open our presents, freeze, and stare at each other. He has gotten me the exact same book.)

Boyfriend: “Oh. My. God. One sec, wait right there.”

(He comes back into the room a minute later, gets down on one knee and pulls out a ring.)

Boyfriend: “I was going to plan a really romantic way to give this to you, but I don’t think we’ll ever have better proof than this that we’re perfect for each other. Will you marry me?”

(Of course I said yes. We’ve been married for two years now, and everyone always asks why we have two copies of the same book on our coffee table!)

Ghost Of Christmas Present-less

| ON, Canada | Romantic | December 24, 2013

(It is late afternoon on Christmas Eve. My husband comes into the living room while putting on his coat.)

Husband: “Hey, so how much is in the bank account?”

Me: “Looks like the mortgage went through today. We’ve got about $50 left in there.”

Husband: “What?! What happened to it all?”

Me: “Well, I spent about $50 extra on groceries this week for Christmas dinner; I told you that.”

Husband: “Well, that’s just great! I was going to go and get you a present for Christmas, but there’s nothing left!”

(He left it to late Christmas Eve to get me my present. Apparently, $50 “wasn’t enough”, so I got nothing.)
