We all have different holiday traditions. Some of us jump in the sea, some of us always get into arguments, and some of us pass out on the couch before 6pm. And some, like Judy Brown, like to wind up their loved ones in some very creative ways.

Judy Brown's "favourite holiday pastime" is winding up her father and after doing so with aplomb in 2016, she really needed to go all out to get him this year.

Brown shared the story of her Christmas prank on Twitter and to say it's a nail-biting saga would be an understatement.

Brown's Christmas prank went down on treat on Twitter, with many calling it the highlight of the day. Others contributed some ingenious and downright evil ideas for next year's edition of the prank.

Merry Christmas, everybody.
