Watch: This is what a hilarious, typically Irish Christmas looks like

It may not be the most recent Christmas video, but this makes us laugh every single time and is sure to get you into the festive spirit


The talented Jennifer Zamparelli and the rest of the Republic of Telly crew know just what goes on in (most) Irish households come Christmas, and they’ve compiled these brilliantly funny moments into one video.

From putting the empty sweet wrappers back in the box (every year), to overdressing to attend Mass (classic), and the hilarity that ensues as bewildered parents attempt to put toys together (without waking the kids, of course) – this is guaranteed to make you giggle and suitably remind you of the joy a ‘typical’ Irish Christmas brings.

Enjoy it in full below:
