This is what happens when you wait all year for a Mr Coffee.

I always hated this part of Christmas — the presents sitting opened under the tree — what’s the point? So much work just waiting as presents need to be sorted and put away, the decorations brought back to the basement, vacuuming up all that tinsel and tree needles….I’m getting holiday blues just thinking about it!
this one made me laugh out loud, classic kid attitude
No more figgy pudding for you, little man.
God took away the tree of knowledge, hid the tree of life, but left the tree of disappointment for this poor kid here.
“Why does Santa always bring me ‘husky’ clothes?”
mom insisted that billy wear the giants shirt that grandma sent. (unfortunatetly, grandma forgot that billy is no longer a size 4T…)
Must be a tea drinker.
My grandparents always display the opened presents underneath the tree for a couple of days after Christmas. I’ve always thought that it’s the weirdest thing…
we always did that cause we had a lot of family coming around. they wanted to see what we got and would quit playing with within the next two weeks.
We did that too. I have modified it to keeping everything out for Christmas Day but next morning it all gets put away.
He looks like he’s ingested some of those tree icicles.
he’s just read Marney’s letter of what’s expected of him for the New Year’s Eve party.
I remember when Santa brought Mr Coffee…I was really excited and told all my friends. Even though I was just a kid and didn’t drink coffee.
What are my mom’s curtains doing in that house?
we had some almost exactly like that ourselves for like, 15 years
Join us for the Hallmark Hall of Fame Holiday classic: “Marnie’s First Christmas”.
HA!!!! “Dang it, where’s that regulation size casserole dish I asked for??”
Totally laughed out loud for real on these comments!!!!!
The look on his face doesn’t say “not happy” so much as it says, “You gotta fall asleep sometime, and when you do….”
lol, the comments for this photo are so funny.
When all he really wanted was a compound bow…
…was waiting for that.. 😉
This looks like Christmas 1974. Tinsel and Garland on tree, plus the “portable” tv. (Probably black & white.) I used to have a wicker chair just like one in background. Isn’t this a typical American Christmas? So stressful — you’re good all year then what a big letdown. Then your parents yell at you for not appreciating what “Santa” brought you. I bet lots of us have similar pictures.
Are we related? You perfectly described my Christmas experiences! I totally feel this kid! While its a funny pic, it also gave me a sick feeling in my stomach as it reminded me of my Christmas days as a kid!.
That’s so true. I have a picture of me laying on the floor right after opening presents – just holding up a toe – it was all the energy my four year old body could muster. I gave my parents the big toe.
Not what little Sally was expecting when she asked Santa for a brother for Christmas
That old, somewhat smushed-up Mr. Coffee box is just an example of this family’s casual attitude toward wrapping presents.
Exhibit B: the shrink-wrapped television to the left.
Damn, humans are funny creatures.
I’m pretty sure we had the TV on the left and I have no doubt that we had that wicker chair. My mother just threw it out after 40 years. I swear.
Now maybe by next Christmas you’ll learn not to wear shoes in the house.
Man, he/she is just radiating the joy of the season.
Exactly. Such radiance coming from him/her.
I think it’s more like radiation from sitting too close to that shrink-wrapped t.v. watching H.R. Pufenstuff
Funny! He’s your friend when things get rough! I hope that’s not a black and
He looks like he could really use a Mr. Coffee! Or maybe he was just told Santa Claus is not real?
I think he figured that out on his own this year.
Yea he did, when he only got clothes for Christmas. 🙁
…WHADDYA MEAN SANTA’S NOT REAL!??!???
“The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!”
one of my favorite comments!
I don’t the kid needs the TV either.
Nothing else to do here but wait patiently for Easter.
No pony again for little Billy.
All he really wanted was an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time….
He’ll put an eye out with that thing.
Just what I was thinking!
Maybe he just unwrapped the pink bunny outfit his Aunt got him.
I don’t see any toys?? No wonder he was bummed. Just a bunch of clothes boxes. 🙁 …TV for him?
Favorite NFL team or species?
Instead of the Mr. Coffee, he really wanted Mr. Donut.
Little Johnny still had problems straitening out his limbs after spending all night in that box. Until he walked, Mom clearly had mixed feelings about her new gift!
I remember my first Mr. Coffee…
It’s not all bad……..looks like he’s got a shrink-wrapped t.v. too.
I am pretty sure I still have that tv!!!
hahaha… I still have it too only now it won’t work without some box or something!
Man, all I wanted was a Pong.
Spoiled little pudding. I guess that he didn’t get that Hickory Farms smoked meats/ jellies/ chocolate box set that he REALLY wanted.
Why is there plastic wrap around the tv!?
maybe they didn’t want to spill coffee on it? by the looks of it he must be excited to have it
Oh look honey, santa left us a disgruntled elf under the tree this year !!!!!!!
Call me an elf ONE MORE TIME…
The old tradition of the Christmas Goblin under the tree.
I have that same wicker chair… STILL! (well, one just like it…)
…and I’m pretty sure we had that same little B&W TV, too! lol
…great. i´m absolutely JEALOUS. lucky you 😉
…forget about the beautiful tree, the wonderful boy – i LOVE the TV, on the left side…
The one that appears to be wrapped in saran wrap?
i wondered what was off about the TV.
I had a TV just like that…!!!
Me too! Black and white too, I bet. Mine only had a sleek black exterior tho, not a space age, “2001: Space Odyssey” white.
I used to love flipping the dial around, “Dzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”. “Stop that! You’re gonna break the dial!!”
I can see why he looks so p!$$@d. They didn’t buy him a Litebrite, just a digital watch and a two-piece jooging suit.
Me Too! We played Attari on it.
Hahaha, me too! Pacman, (wonka,wonka,wonka,wonka…)
Possible sugar plum overload. I’ve been there myself.
Santa left his mini-me behind!
I know, right!?
Lol….is that a mug…or what is it? In his hand..?
I think that’s his shoe – we’re kind of looking at it from the toe.
Did anyone else think for a moment that this kid had the craziest afro you’ve ever seen?
it’s not even a fro, it’s like a donald trump
I think he means the tree.
