The 12 Pains of Christmas

Heart Breakfast with Martin and Su wanted to make the 12 Days of Christmas a bit more relatable.

So they created the 12 Pains of Christmas. With your help they changed the original words to something that really annoys you over the festive period. Thank you for your help. Here are the lyrics and you can listen to the song below.
