9 unmistakable signs that you are the Grinch

Christmas cheer? Never heard of it.

WE ALL KNOW AT least one person who, as soon as December rolls around, transforms from a perfectly reasonable person into a glowering Grinch. But what if that’s you?

So you mightn’t be green and furry, but there’s still plenty of evidence that you’re a Christmas spirit vacuum.

1. You started moaning about Christmas in November

The first Christmas ad you saw, you were griping. “NOT THIS CRAP AGAIN.”

2. You’ve called it a “commercialised capitalist holiday” about 100 times since then

A little ray of sunshine, that’s what you are.

3. You refused to shop in places that have Christmas decorations/music before December

4. You adopt a sour puss every time someone sings a carol or wears a festive jumper

Wave that tinsel in my face again. Just try it.

5. You often dream of ‘getting away’ some Christmas

To the Caribbean. Or Japan. Far away.

6. Frost and snow just makes you feel cold, not festive

How could anyone enjoy this?

7. You sleep until noon on Christmas morning

Why should it be different to any other morning off? Hmm?

8. You prefer Ebeneezer Scrooge at the start of A Christmas Carol

Prickly, grouchy, devoid of cheer. Just like you.

9. And when it’s all over, you perk up considerably

No more fairy lights! No more tinsel! No more Christmas!
