What are the most common Christmas mishaps in the UK?

The British have revealed the most popular things Christmas risks, including forgetting to put the oven on, bringing politics to the table – and losing someone’s gift.

A poll of 2,000 adults found that nearly three-quarters have made mistakes over the Christmas holidays, with knocking down the Christmas tree, getting too drunk and being caught cheating at Scrabble, all within top 40 list.

Other awkward moments include being caught pulling your aunt’s face behind her back and not realizing your mother-in-law was listening as they whined about her meddling.

In fact, the survey found that Christmas mishaps are so common, one in three people believe that getting through the festive period without making at least one mistake will be a Christmas miracle. real birth.

As a result, 64% suspect people tend to filter their festive times, putting in only the ‘good parts’ of Christmas. social media to make their home life appear more perfect.

But six in 10 would rather have a ‘real and authentic’ festive experience than get caught up in trying to make everything perfect.

Tina Warner-Keogh, co-founder of Warner Distillery, the research trust, said: “There is nothing more realistic than when things don’t go as planned at Christmas.

“So it’s not adorable if the dog ate the turkey (it happened) or if the Christmas pudding burned the tablecloth (it happened too).

“It’s all authentic, authentic carnival family fun.

“In a world where reality is increasingly distilled to match appearance, a true and authentic Christmas – risk and all – makes the festive season that much more memorable.”

The poll also found that a quarter of adults had left the price on their gifts, while others ran out of wrapping paper.

Another 12% admitted to having passed two-thirds of Quality Street’s baths on their own – leaving only the worst for others.

And just 23% say they’ve completely ‘mastered’ how to manage Christmas – and got through without a hitch.

More than half of the respondents polled via OnePoll would go as far as to admit that they are relieved that the goodwill season is finally over.

To celebrate Christmas – the missteps and all – Warner created a festive cocktail menu, including ‘0% Come All Ye Drivers’, for anyone trying to avoid getting too drunk and ‘Christmas On The Rocks, may band together at the last minute to appease the sons-in-law.

Tina Warner-Keogh, from Warner Distillery added: “With last year being quite an unusual year for all of us, let’s not get caught up in the pressure to appear ‘perfect’.

“We all want to keep it real at Warner, which is why we only use 100% natural ingredients in our gin.”

“No matter what mistakes you make this Christmas, enjoying time with the people who really matter is what you need to do.

“So let’s keep it real and have a Merry Christmas.”
