Roasting chestnuts on an open fire, watching Dad try (and fail) to set the fruit pudding alight and laughing at Gran's same long-winded joke for the 50th time might be what the spirit of Christmas is all about.
But taking a social media tumble into Eva Longoria's festive holiday of dreams is making our Christmas shenanigans look a little bit dull right now.
The 41-year-old Desperate Housewives actress is vacationing up a storm in Mexico and her Snapchats, Instagrams and Insta-stories are making us about as green with envy as we could ever be.
The Texas born star was seen at LAX airport last week, dressed like a ninja in black, making a speedy getaway.
Since then, she's been seen doing almost all of the things that we wish we were currently doing instead of getting crushed during last minute sprints to the shops and acquiring wrapping paper cuts.
She's checking out the Mexican paper pom pom trees:
Chasing rogue iguanas around her villa's pool:
Sunning herself in the impossibly blinding UV rays:
Doing her festive beach happy dance:
Eva wasn't without a little bit of traditional festive cheer, posing in front of a lavishly decorated Christmas tree in Beverley Hills before she left.
But nothing quite beats escaping the cold for lounging around like this in a super hot Melissa Obadash bikini:
Where was our invite hey, Eva? Share the love.
