Shopping in crowded malls, staging the Elf on the shelf, changing your handwriting to be 'Santa,' or watching the same movie 500 times until New Year's day--being a parent during Christmas is an extreme sport...
So, if you could certainly use a laugh right now about the stress, challenges and joy of having kids during the holiday season, here are the funniest tweets we could find from parents who need a heavily-handed pour of spiked eggnog.
Shout out to the families that do Christmas cards. I couldn’t get my kids to look at the camera if I bribed them with kittens and fireworks.
We were reading ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas with my toddler last night and she saw Santa Claus and his silly hat and nearly in tears she said to us “I don’t want Santa to be silly. I want him to wear a hoodie like me.”
My wife and I have a tiny dilemma, and by tiny we mean toddler size… We normally get a big Christmas tree but, Molly is getting into everything at this stage and we fear she’ll knock down the ornaments; even the tree itself… What did folks do when they had a 14-month-old? 🎄

Top of my 3.5 y/o daughter's Christmas list is "tooth", which, on gentle enquiry, she describes as "a ball of teeth". Let me know if you have any idea what that might actually mean or if you think I should call the police
Unpopular christmas opinion I can’t voice anywhere else, I absolutely hate the elf on the shelf thing. My kids will never know elf on the shelf. I hate how they’re trying to make that a thing, if my mum told me elves were spying on me as a kid it would have caused me a meltdown
