My worst holiday experience occurred when I was 13 yrs old. My mom was never much into giving me presents. She saved those for my sis, the angel of her life. That summer I worked and put aside a little cash and ordered a skateboard. It never came. For the longest time I gave up on it, figuring I got ripped off. Christmas morning comes along and I was watching my sis rip open her bounty. Just another day, you know. It got down to the last present, which was tucked behind the tree. Lo and behold it was for me. Guess what it was! Yeah, my skateboard. Seems that it did come in the mail and my mum thought it would be great fun to give me a gift that I had bought for myself. The really bad part was that it wasn’t even put together and... read more

Not a hellish story, per se. But I will always remember it! We got up on Christmas morning only to find our poodle chewing the head off of Baby Jesus in our manger display. She had already snacked on the Virgin Mary.

Bought a new car for my wife yesterday. I wanted to have it parked in the driveway tomorrow morning and had a big bow in the back cargo area.

I parked it two streets over, near the cul-de-sac so there was no chance she'd see it. Today I drove by to make sure it was OK, and saw it was pushed up on the grass.

The whole back end had been wiped out, glass shattered, the bumper was hanging off, and the bow was sticking out the tailgate. Apparently a snow plow had come along and "plowed" in to it over night.

I had it towed back to the dealership and have nothing else to give my wife tomorrow morning.

I had been dating a guy for about six months when my birthday came around. Very generously, he hosted a dinner at a restaurant for me and several friends. It came time to pass around the birthday cards so everyone could see the birthday wishes. My boyfriend started passing his card to me around the table. Everyone was chuckling. Then, it got to me and it said on the cover, "What explains your rosy glow of youth?" Inside: "Must be all that masturbation." I was mortified. He claims he had never participated in the tradition of passing the card around the table. Even so, I thought it a terribly unromantic card for a first birthday together.

The idea for the Hellidays site actually arose from an awful mishap on my part that caused me to lose the friendship of my best friend. He and his partner invited me to Thanksgiving. The next day, I erroneously sent an email to said friend detailing how awful the dinner was. The turkey was "as dry as sawdust" was one of the highlights. Though I begged forgiveness, we didn't speak for many years and only now have tentatively begun communicating again. It was wrong, bad, horrible and I will never get over it.
