Happy Holidays, dear Pandas! I hope you spent many warm and soul-healing moments with the people you love the most on this tiny blue planet this month. Though Christmas is over and we’re all enjoying our gifts, the spirit of the holiday doesn’t officially retire until next year until January 6. So let’s indulge in a bit more festive fun in the meantime, shall we?

Our snow-and-gingerbread-loving Bored Panda team has put together for you this list of the best, funniest, and wittiest Xmas Twitter posts. From weirdly hilarious family traditions and general goofiness that accompanies families during the holidays to merry memes and more, we think we’ve touched on a bit of everything. Scroll down, upvote your fave posts, and let us know in the comments what funny situations happened to you over the weekend.

Meanwhile, be sure to read on for Bored Panda’s interview with Lenore Skenazy about the importance of holiday traditions, family weirdness, and why traditions, along with spending quality time with our family members are far more important than receiving lots of presents and having stockings that are full to the brim with knick-knacks. Lenore is the president of Let Grow, a nonprofit promoting childhood independence and resilience, and founder of the Free-Range Kids movement.

And if you’re in the mood for some more cheery social media content, definitely have a look through Bored Panda’s article about the most hilarious Christmas tweets from last year. You’ll find it right over here.

That's too funny. My daughters dog attacks her stocking when they finally give it to get off the mantle. Un til then, she stares at it and howel. It is hilarious!

Lenore, the founder of Let Grow and the Free-Range Kids movement, opened up to Bored Panda about the importance of having family traditions over the holidays. Even if they’re funny and quirky. Or is that _especially_ if they’re quirky? In short, these small, repeating, shared experiences help us stay together throughout the years.

“Quirky traditions that your family develop are a way of being and staying a unit. A tradition UNITES you. And because it comes around at a certain holiday, it threads the years together,” she told Bored Panda.

According to the childhood independence expert, it doesn’t matter what the tradition is. All that matters is that it exists and that you and your relatives stay true to it throughout all the holidays to come.

“Anything can become—or remain—a tradition. A special food, word, song, game, way of making something or doing something,” she said.

Ooh, not how I see it. The list only has children who are naughty or nice (no adults at all sorry). Criminals, especially murderers and sex offenders, aren't 'naughty'. They are in another category altogether so Santa is doing nothing wrong. Just my take on it 🤷

Sounds like a million-dollar making idea. Sell a festive law enforcement officer doll under that name. (Make if fire-resistant for safety based on what I've seen onthe internet.)

Some traditions are so deeply entrenched in our lives that we don’t actually notice them anymore and think it’s something that everyone does at home. However, it’s only when we go outside our warm and cozy social bubble that we begin to realize that every family has its own traditions. Some might differ from ours only subtly while others are truly unique.

“Chances are you already have some and just don’t think of them as ‘traditions’—maybe some special ornaments you always put on the tree, or a dessert you make even though it takes about three hours to prepare, or a place you visit, whether that’s a home, a park, a store, a grave,” Lenore explained that these holiday and Xmas traditions can vary wildly.

“Traditions are so important that even young kids can appreciate them more than gifts. If you weren’t going to put up the Christmas tree, for instance, that would be sadder for most kids than not giving them an extra gift. That’s because traditions ARE gifts—gifts from the past that give meaning and joy to the here and now,” Lenore told Bored Panda.

Lenore also revealed a quirky but fun family tradition that they’ve had in her family for years: a talking lemon. It’s a tradition that stuck with them.

“[It’s] a lemon that dried out perfectly that, for some reason or another, we decided to keep AND decided it could speak. Okay, so maybe it sounds a lot like me,” she joked about the talking lemon.

“My sons, now in their 20s, groan when I get out the lemon, who lives most of the year with our holiday paraphernalia,” she opened up about the bizarre tradition to Bored Panda.

“But we all also love the lemon because… he talks! And he’s cranky! Makes dumb jokes! And possibly no other family on earth has a tradition of a talking lemon who comes out and complains about the holidays.”

I watched the Muppets Christmas Carol this year and actually thought, "Dang, young Michael Caine looks like a snack." For those who don't know, he plays Ebenezer.

Glitter is the devil to clean up but all of the ornaments on my tree are covered in it. I love the way it sparkles with the lights. I'm sure by now my vacuum has asthma.

For anyone who is wondering, in British English, to 'deck' something (or someone, in this case) is to beat the hell out of it. In this particular case, John Prescott (a Member of Parliament at the time) thumped a member of the public... can't remember why.
