Like it or not, Christmas is often a bumpy ride. From the making of the cookies to hanging the lights to wrapping those gifts at the last minute, there are many pitfalls that can occur before the big day. This is why you need genius last-minute holiday hacks to save yourself from Christmas fails, if only because you'll be so frazzled from putting the whole production together that one mishap can seem unsolvable. In the time it takes to hang the ornaments up to once the kids get to sleep post-cookie baking and writing letters to Santa, one—if not several—total fails will probably go down, and it'll be up to you to make sure it's solved before moving on to the next thing. And with a few clever hacks up your sleeve, there's no doubt you won't be able to.
Even a single disaster can feel like it'll set you back the rest of the (busy, busy) evening. But you shouldn't let any of them derail you, as not only are they easily addressable, but you could also totally ruin the Christmas spirit by letting any of them get you down. So feel as giddy as the kids jumping up and down from the holiday sugar rush just knowing that in spite of any mishap that comes your way the night before the big day, you'll know exactly what to do while, er, waiting for that guy in the red suit.
