The holidays are a hectic time of year.

We're trying to put on the best show, present our best selves, and ensure we have our best end to the year.

Gifts are a common tradition, but man, wrapping them is so hard.

How do you make sure it always looks great? What do you do if you cut the paper a little too short?

Luckily, the internet was recently blown away by a wrapping hack that's as simple as it is brilliant.

The video uploaded to Blossom on Facebook, depicts a series of hacks to make your gift wrapping a little easier. With everything from making gift bags out of wrapping, or adding a built-in pocket for a card, the video has a lot of tricks.

But the one that caught the internet by storm is what to do if you cut the paper just a little too short. The answer is a simple tilt.


It's that simple.

The Blossom video is the source of the clip, but it gained a lot more attention after being shared on Twitter by user Waterstones.

Unfortunately, it has since been removed, due to a copyright claim.

Still, Twitter is where the internet had their minds blown.

Maybe if you understood geometry, this hack was already your choice of wrapping.

The rest of us are just excited to have an answer when we make a mistake.

Then again, some math people didn't get it right away either.

Maybe this hack is too-little-too-late for you this year, but keep this article bookmarked.

Who knows?

You might find it helpful for a birthday party.

And a hanging caddy like the Primode Hanging Gift Wrap Storage Bag with Detachable Accessory Tote, available here, for all of your wrapping needs could make Christmas clean-up or keeping that all occasion paper handy for the rest of the year simpler too.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
