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.
