They say age is just a number, and while a positive mindset carries you through most situations, Christmas brings out the worst in aging. Here are some major differences you’ll experience.
1. During a Christmas Meal
20s: Pass me the gravy
30s: Pass me the Rennies
20s: Just give me cash, it’s better that way
30s: Oh my god you got me batteries for all my dead remotes – I love you
3. The post-meal traditions
20s: Shall we go to PV after this?
30s: Shall we go nap on the sofa after this?
4. Catching up with extended cousins you only see this time of year
20s: I wonder who got engaged this year
30s: I wonder who’s pregnant this year
5. New Year’s Eve Plans
20s: Open bar is only for three hours? Shall we predrink somewhere before?
30s: If we organise a party at home, we can be asleep by 12:30
6. Organising family events
20s: I’m so over everyone organising things because they feel obliged to by social norms at this time of year
30s: Was uncle Henry allergic to hummus? Did we invite aunt Rita to Christmas Eve drinks, Boxing Day lunch or or New Years Day tea?
