Going to the shops
There’s nowhere to park
We’re out of cheese
Let’s play a game!
Delivered to a neighbour
The family have arrived
Get out the fridge
End of the sellotape
Decided what you want?
I’ll have a think
Don’t get me anything
In true British style, these Twitter users rose to the occasion, showing they are preparing for the worst when it come to Christmas this year.
Some were concerned with not being allowed to touch any food before the big day…
