This is a question My Christmas Nightmare

The bringing together of one's family and friends over the holiday period is never quite as fun as it is supposed to be: this year, my mum and dad will be in the same room for the first time in 28 months. It should prove interesting.

Tell us about the nightmares you've had over christmas.

True but tasteless paramedic humor...
Was near the end of a ten-hour shift last Christmas Day and was all ready to head home to unwrap pressies with the family and stuff my face and punish my liver - when an emergency call came in for a "suspected suicide". Was shown into a bedroom by a very distraught flatmate of the victim where we found a guy in his early 20's hanging from electrical cord attached to a ceiling fan.
He was several hours deceased so my partner and I followed protocol by preserving the scene until the police could arrive to take over.

Whilst waiting, we both sat there in silence, occasionally muttering such profound comments to each other as "Hmm..." and "Well.." when my partner suddenly looks up at the deceased and says to me "That must be the biggest Christmas hanging ornament I’ve ever seen”.

I guess you had to be there...
