“I bought my mom a fridge for Christmas” (joke)

Faces “light up” when people receive gifts. Steve Toyne posted on Twitter on November 5, 2010 and reposted as a Christmas joke on December 22, 2014:

“I bought my girlfriend a fridge for her birthday tomorrow, I can’t wait to see her face light up when she opens it.”

“I bought the missus a new fridge for Christmas. You should have seen her face light up when she opened it” was posted on Twitter on December 8, 2011:

A slightly different joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 24, 2016:

“Getting my dad some strong aftershave and a cigarette lighter for Christmas. Can’t wait to see his face light up.”
