5- You tried to make homemade candy canes.
6- It took you a solid week to put up all the lights on your house.
7- You made a doll-house sized gingerbread house, completely filled with gingerbread people, furniture and appliances.
8- You crocheted covers for your Christmas lights.
9- You made your Christmas feast fit each of the Twelve Days of Christmas, including partridge soup and golden onion rings.

11- You couldn’t find a place for the elf and reindeer figurines, so you put them in the manger.
12- You climbed up on the roof to jingle some sleigh bells, fell off, and broke your arm (and then you had a Christmas-themed cast put on).
