Friends Get Drunk And Try To Wrap Absurd Holiday Gifts
There are so many holiday activities one can enjoy in December, but if you ask me, wrapping presents is not one of them.
Ice skating, sledding, seeing “Rogue One” and then immediately sneaking into the next theater to watch “Office Christmas Party” — these things are all a thousand times more fun than the mundane task of covering gifts just to have the paper ripped off and thrown away almost immediately afterwards.
Every year, it’s the same thing. Once I’m home for the holidays, all I want to do is chill out.
All year, I look forward to holiday break. Then I can lounge in ill-fitting pajamas I wore in high school and joy-weep with my sisters as we watch “The Family Stone” for the twentieth time.
So wrapping presents basically feels like a chore. It’s the last thing on my holiday to-do list.
I procrastinate wrapping presents like I procrastinated writing my final paper of college until three months after I had graduated. It’s very simple. If an activity brings me no joy, I avoid it for as long as I can.
When I finally get around to wrapping everything, it’s the night of Dec. 24 (if I’m on my game) or the morning of Christmas (most of the time).
The presents always do get wrapped, but it’s never a fun activity for me. Even if I’m watching Tim Allen’s “The Santa Clause” (a really underrated gem of a movie, in my opinion), there is nothing thrilling about it.
So in an attempt to make the least enjoyable holiday activity fun, we brought some good friends together to sip on some festive liquor and wrap gifts together.
But in order to keep it interesting for our lovely viewers, the gifts we made these people wrap were pretty absurd.
Enjoy our efforts to make gift-wrapping somewhat bearable!
