17 Awesome Christmas Pranks

by Smidge Boyter on December 1, 2010


While my wife says that the holiday season and pranks don’t go together, I firmly disagree. Christmas is a time when people are very open and vulnerable, which is the perfect time to strike and pay them back for being rotten to you for the other 11 months of the year.

Christmas Cookie Surprise Prank Craptacular

Cookie Craptacular Prank


Purchase or make a batch of cookies for your coworkers that you will place in a holiday tin. Now take a photo of one of the cookies resting on a toilet seat. Place the photo near the bottom of the tin where the last or close to the last cookie that is grabbed will reveal your nasty photo. Word will spread fast of your holiday prank and your coworkers will be absolutely disgusted. I leave it to you to decide if you actually want to include the cookie that was resting on the toilet seat.

I personally went around to each of my coworkers and offered them a cookie from a similar tin that is in the photo. I then emailed them the photo once everyone had gobbled their cookies down. I heard a chorus of, “Ugghhhh. Gross!!!” after hitting the send button.

Here’s another great Christmas pranks for gift wrapping:
find a whole bunch of boxes that can fit one inside the other, make sure the end box looks huge. then in the smallest box put an extremely small present or even just a little note that says “Merry Christmas” works great for secret Santa.
