Nobody loves Christmas quite as much as an Irish mother, which is why it can be such fun to play a wee prank on Irish mammies over the holiday season. 

The pranks better not be mean, mind you! Irish mothers do so much for their families year-round, but especially at Christmas, so it doesn't do at all to plan a prank that's anything but fun and good-natured. 

This is why this Christmas prank video, which we're sharing with you for Day 12 of our Advent Calendar, is so well done. 

This Irish mammy's laughter is beyond contagious and will have you roaring laughing right along with her. 

Have you ever planned a Christmas prank? How did it go? Tell us in the comment section.
