    They tried, god bless their hearts, but they failed.

    While everyone else is tucking into pizza.

    7. The crumbling pile of GF pastry.

    8. The obligatory bowl of popcorn to keep you going when everyone else is feasting on gluten.

    It's safe to eat! Hurrah!

    16. The deeply disappointing, indulgent Christmas breakfast.
