Christmas isn't all silent nights and peace on earth. Sometimes the holidays get real.

And sometimes (most of the time) the holidays get too real. Ask any of these animals.

4. This giraffe who had one egg nog too many and opened all of the kids' presents.

So they keep pretending to go to the bathroom, but are really just playing Candy Crush.

(P.S. If you're looking for something to watch over the holiday, Blackfish is on Netflix.)

12. This little meerkat guy who left the dinner table crying, "Well, MERRY CHRISTMAS."

Let's face it. It's not Christmas until someone leaves the dinner table crying.

13. This raccoon who's all, "Oh my god, girl! How did you know I wanted these?!"
