A HUSBAND and father-of-four from the Glasgow area finally gave into the beginning of the Christmas spirit after his wife forced him to hang up an advent calendar, it has been reported.
Sources close to the man say he has been battling for many weeks in the lead up to the 1st of December but this morning he finally had to submit and hang the calendar, which is thought to contain chocolate in a wide assortment of varieties.
Speaking exclusively to our reporters, a close aide to the family said: “The poor bastard had to dig deep into the airing cupboard to retrieve a small step ladder before reluctantly hammering a small nail to the kitchen wall.
“It was very emotional seeing a grown man being forced against his will like that. It was desperately humiliating. You’d think it was for the kids but it’s not - it’s for her.”
It’s not the only occasion a grown man will feel humiliation at this time of year.
In the weeks leading to Christmas Day, millions of fathers will be made to parade in front of their families in ridiculous pullovers with disgusting designs such as reindeer and snow-capped mountains. While others will be forced to ice skate with their children in front of onlookers.
