Christmas is a time to eat your body weight in Quality Street chocolate, have a fridge stocked full of Baileys, snuggle up on the sofa with Love Actually and shamelessly indulge in placing tacky, homemade Christmas paraphernalia you made in Year 3 around the house.
It is not reeeeally a time for nail art inspired by Christmas jumpers, is it?
Look, we'll be the first ones to admit to having bought the occasional Rudolph covered knit or Christmas pudding-shaped wooly hat to join in the merriment of festive cheer, but we draw the line at the Christmas-obsessed nail art currently filling up our social media feeds.
How are we meant to crack open a Terry's Chocolate Orange, munch on a mince pie and devour a box full of After Eights when we have glitter, gems and fake tinsel getting in the way of our mouths.
Call us Scrooges, but it's already hard enough try to remove our gloves when we want to WhatsApp someone, the last the we need is having to peel off the fluff left from a wooly mitten from Father Christmas' face, painted onto our nails.
Please, leave the Christmas jumpers on the jumpers.
