For weeks leading up to Christmas eve, you've been shopping, wrapping, and hiding all your purchased gifts in every nook and cranny of your house, constantly worrying that one of your recipients — we're looking at you, kids — will discover the awesome gift that you worked so hard to score. So to take the edge off of this crazy time, here are some hilarious Santa memes that are nothing short of appropriate for this time of year.

I mean, is it nuts to say that these silly pictures can actually bring people together? And isn't that what the holidays are all about? It's about learning that your distant cousin has the same sense of humor as you, and finding joy in one of the most hectic, stressful holidays of all. That is the real magic of Christmas. Oh right and the birth of Jesus Christ — how could I forget?
