So you're super excited to grab your presents from under the tree (if you haven't already) and ready to tear up the packages open to see what's inside. You've made a wish list and you're hoping against hope that each time you open a box, you'll be checking something off that list. But really, who are we kidding here? Sometimes, even the prettiest packages contain the strangest gifts. And sometimes, you can't help but wonder, is this really for me?

Expectation: That liquid liner you've been jonesing for so you can finally do a perfect cat eye.

Reality: You get started right away and instead of your dream liner look, you end up looking like a raccoon. O_O

Expectation: Looking like a cute thug a la Cara Delevingne in your new hoodie.

Reality: Looking like an actual thug in your two-sizes-too-big hoodie.

Expectation: Woot! This is an iPod or maybe a phone. I can super tell it is!

Reality:  It's a notebook. *throws it into a growing pile of notepads and notebooks*

We hope this gave you some holiday LULZ this Christmas Day. Remember, it's the giving and not the receiving that matters. Say thank you and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :D
