18 Things That Always Happen When You Have a Christmas Dinner In Your Uni House

It’s simultaneously much worse and much better than Christmas at home.

1. Everyone quickly realises how unprepared they are to take on this much of a cooking mission.

2. For a start, literally every single person has a different idea of what food should be included.

So you end up having to buy the weirdest combination of food and drink ever.

3. And then you realise how expensive buying so much stuff will be.

8. And for others, the moment you start cooking is a sign that it’s time to get on the mulled wine.

Cue Christmas playlist.

12. But it’s special anyway because you all made it together.

You just have to hope you’re not about to poison anyone.

15. But when you see the state of your kitchen afterwards you kinda wish you’d just gone out.

So much washing up. So much regret.

16. By the end of the day you’ve eaten so much you don’t think you’ll ever be able to move again.

Forget going out, literally no one can get up.

17. So everyone just gets drunk, plays games and watches Christmas films together.

And it’s cute af

18. Even though it wasn’t actually Christmas Day, it was almost better because you got to do it with your uni squad.

And the best thing is knowing you’ve still got the real one to look forward to.
