A man has shared a series of hilarious observations he made while celebrating Christmas for the first time.
Mohammad Hussain is a Muslim man of Pakistani origin who was thrilled to let other Twitter users know about the observations he made while celebrating the Christian holiday for the first time.
As Mr. Hussain, who works for the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Industry, revealed, this year was his first time to celebrate Christmas because he couldn’t visit his family due to the pandemic.
“Growing up, my Muslim family never celebrated Christmas. This year I am not going home, because pandemic, so my roommates are teaching me how to have my first proper Christmas. I am approaching this with anthropological precision,” he wrote.
In a hilarious thread, the man then went on to share his hilarious observations with the rest of the world.
“Observation 1: Christmas is a part time job that you have from mid-November to the end of December. From the outside looking in, Christmas always seemed pretty simple. I always thought you put up a tree and then gave gifts to family. This is a lie,” he wrote.
“Do you want to sleep in on a Saturday? Too bad. Go put up some lights inside the house. Oh you want to sleep in on Sunday? Too bad. Go put up some lights outside the house. Next weekend? Nope. Every free moment you have will be spent agonizing over the gifts you must buy.”
In another tweet about his second observation, Hussain suggested that “people have very strong feelings about their Christmas tradition” as he joked that suggesting alternatives could result in getting stabbed.
As Hussain added, he also noticed how it was okay for people to buy themselves gifts but not acceptable to stuff their own Christmas stockings.
“Observation 4: Your gift budget does not matter. You cant set this budget as high as you want but the perfect gift will always be $10 too expensive. There is no winning. Just give up,” he wrote.
“Observation 5: There are two streams of Christmas ornaments. The ‘fillers’ and the ‘keepers’. The fillers are the generic ones. The keepers are meant to be more special and unique. This second stream is stored in your family’s reliquary to be one day passed on to the children.”
After sharing his observations on Twitter, Hussain’s thread quickly went viral and racked up thousands of likes and shares.
