It's a hectic time of year. You're searching for the perfect gifts, trying to think of every detail to make the holiday special - wrapping, decorating, baking, buying... But just remember: Mistakes make for better memories.
If Ralphie's mother hadn't left the kitchen door open, we never would have had the hilarious Chinese-restaurant-Christmas-dinner with the servers singing Deck the Halls and the beheading of the "Chinese turkey."
Also, just think how boring it would have been if Clark Griswold had picked an appropriately sized Christmas tree, or if the outside lights came on the first time, or if his brother, Eddie, hadn't shown up in his rusty RV and dumped his black tank in Clark's gutter?
So try to relax! No matter how it turns out, everyone will still love you - probably even if you don't buy them "an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time."
