I will start. I made two mistakes: First, I mistakenly thought my father-in-law's rendition of an English Christmas carol on a trumpet was the theme from The Godfather. Second, I verbalized it. Anyone else?

Yips! from Robbo: I stayed up waaaay too late Christmas night playing Playstation 2 golf against my brother and we both slept late the next day, leaving it to our respective Missusees to deal with the children, all of whom were in near berserker mode with excitement.

Other than quoting Monty Python at all the wrong times, drinking one too many beers and singing Cartman's rendition of Oh Holy Night in church. I got nothing.

Actually believed the missus when she said, "Let's not get each other gifts this year."

One set of new golf clubs later, I'm scrounging for gifts at Vons... "She'll like a new canister of Clorox wipes, right?"

I tried to mix my family with my husband's family. The whole thing was one big faux pas, culminating with:

Me (in a room filled with both families): Now I remember why the last time everyone was together was our wedding. And why our wedding nearly drove me out of my gourd.
