You know how Christmas day is supposed to be the best day of the year? It seems that nothing could go wrong when you're spending some relaxing time with your family, unwrapping the many presents that you've got with your tummy stuffed with delicious foods. Well, as with everything in life, not even the Christmas spirit is safe from being ruined by some epic fails and turning into the worst day ever.

It turns out that Christmas is only merry until you sink your teeth into a soap lobster thinking it's chocolate. Or until you shatter your glass table and your entire dinner ends up on the floor. The beauty of the internet, however, is that no matter what kind of funny fails happen to you, no matter the bad luck that has been dealt for you, you can always browse it to find someone who's having it worse. Bored Panda has compiled a list of hilarious photos of people who probably wish to forget their Christmas (or at least parts of it), and they will make yours look 10/10. So scroll down to check the merry people whose holidays turned into some sick Christmas jokes below!

Clean inside and out. But I'm confused how the smell didn't tell her it was a soap and not chocolate.

Exactly! We learned our lesson one year with a litter of kittens. They would either climb up the tree and jump over to the drapes (it was a rental), or vice versa.

This is why all our ornaments are plastic. PLASTIC, people. With four cats, we've been using the same ones for seven years. Just a few minutes ago, I was heating up some hot chocolate and saw our biggest boy Pebre (about 6.5 kg of pure black fluff) run up to the tree, rip off an ornament, and run away gleefully. I also have to say that we don't really mind finding ornaments strewn around or the tree toppled over every now and then because our cats are spoiled brats and these few weeks of holiday cheer make them happy.

I think the fish is a ornament...and apparently from the puddle on the floor, the cat pissed itself on the way down .

Pamela Scott

I figured this would have happened at our house by now, but so far the most Floki has done is slapped one of the ornaments toward the bottom of the tree and then ignored it so far. He looks a lot like the cat in this picture.

Put a guy wire around the tree trunk - about half way up - and attach it to the wall on both sides. Cat can't knock it over though you may lose some ornaments.

Ours did that too, but 1) it was a fake tree so no water and 2) even though we "smartly" put all the fragile ornaments on the top two-thirds of the tree, out of reach of the cats, somehow none of them broke when he pulled it down. We got super lucky.
