Christmas Day Rules

christmas day

Even if you’re a full-grown adult, there are still rules for how you must spend your Christmas Day. You must follow every single one of these rules this Christmas. Or you’ll be on Santa’s naughty list next year.

#1 Listen To Christmas Music

No. We don’t care if you don’t like Christmas music. You must listen to it all day. We don’t make the rules, we just enforce them. Try our Festive Playlist if you’re too lazy to make your own.

#2 Eat All The Junk Food

This one’s pretty obvious. But don’t start until after you’ve had your Christmas dinner. After that, you can eat all the junk food from Target.

#3 Drink All The Christmas Cocktails

Drinking starts from the moment you wake up. Everybody knows this. (It’s happy hour somewhere!). For those of legal drinking age in whatever part of the world you’re from, try our Christmas Cocktails. If you’re not of legal drinking age, don’t like to drink, or you’re the designated driver, try one of our Non-Alcoholic Beverages.

#4 Celebrate Baby Yoda

Ok, this one isn’t essential. We just love Baby Yoda. That’s all. Keep reading.

#5 Put On A Festive Jumper

You’ll literally be arrested if you don’t follow this rule. Christmas Day without a Christmas jumper is like Peanut Butter without Jelly. Or Boxing Day without crazy sales. Nobody wants that. That’s the beginning of the end of humanity.

#6 Tell Your Best Dad Jokes

Need to be convinced that dad jokes are essential? Read these. You’re now convinced.

#7 Watch a Christmas Movie

The best way to finish the day is with a full belly and a Festive Flick. It’s totally up to you which movie you chose. (Elf.) Any movie at all will do (Choose Elf.) It doesn’t have to be Elf. (It has to be Elf.)

Christmas Day Activities

Presents are great. Christmas dinner is great. But figuring out how to spend the rest of the day, isn’t great. So we’ve created a list of the best 5 activities to do on Christmas Day.

Try a Quiz

Lucky for you, we’ve already made two quizzes you can play with family! Try our Christmas knowledge quiz, and our Christmas lyric quiz. And when you’re done with that, rub it in your friends and family’s faces about how easily you beat them.

Build a Gingerbread Village

Why build one house when you could build a whole village? Target have a great set for only $9.99. But if you prefer, you can buy the single house and have a competition with your friends and family.

Spend Time Volunteering

There are many ways to give back during the festive season. Whether it’s popping into your local retirement home and spending time with its residents, or going to your local homeless shelter or soup kitchen to help and serve food. Check out your local places in need, and give back this Christmas. Even just an hour of your time makes all the difference.

Play a Game

If you’re a stan, try Game Of Thrones Trivia or Star Wars Monopoly but if not, try UNO. It’s a classic. Everyone loves UNO. If you don’t, you’re dead inside.

Watch Christmas Movies

Wondering what film to watch? Well we’re here to save the day once again. Check out MDRN’s Favorite Festive Flicks for Christmas Day movie inspiration like The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Christmas Nail Design Ideas

If you like having your nails painted, chances are you’re getting your nails done just before Christmas Day, like us. You don’t want them looking un-kept, like The Grinch. But choosing a design can be tough. The last thing you want is realizing you have the same design as your least favorite cousin, Tina. You want your nails to be 10x better than Tina, and everyone to know it.

So we’ve compiled a list of our favorite festive nail designs, to give you some inspiration. Don’t worry, Tina doesn’t read our articles. If you pick one of these, you won’t end up with the same as her.

The Most Extra Christmas Decorations

And here we have a list of the people doing the absolute most over Christmas. We’re not saying you shouldn’t go all out, we’re just saying these houses look like Target had a buy 1 get 73 decorations free sale.

Where’s the front door?

Imagine their electricity bill…

There might not even be any bricks behind these lights. The house might actually just be made of lights…

Kinda love this one tbh…

And here’s someone who did the absolute least. But it’s the absolute best of them all…
