But not everyone who goes out to create joy nails the task, with some accidentally ruining desserts, haphazardly wrapping presents and knocking over Christmas trees.
After a year like no other, people from around the world have shared their hilarious and awkward Christmas fails – which are a reminder that even when you plan things can go horribly wrong.
