Dec 17

With the festive season in full swing, here are 10 signs that show you’ve fully embraced the most magical time of the year.

1. The “I don’t have to go to work” face.

2. You overindulge. It turns out your eyes are bigger than your mouth…

3. Ice skating.

 4. You find yourself playing charades.

5. The “if that Christmas song loops just one more time I am going to scream” grimace. But you don’t because you’re no Scrooge….

6. You watch Home Alone. Twice.

7. Snoozing. Keeping your eyes open is a real struggle. Much like the second meerkat from the left in this video. Watch from 22 seconds in…

8. You overindulge some more.
