Every year, there was at least one.

One jammy little so-and-so in your primary school who managed to score a trip to Lapland just in time for Christmas.

While your teacher (the traitor) encouraged them to share their excitement with everyone, you watched from a dark corner of the classroom and silently plotted their downfall.

And here are just eight thoughts that ran through your head while your so-called friend ruined your Christmas.

1. “Why are her parents bringing her to Lapland, and my parents are bringing me to mass?”

“I swear I was born into the wrong family.”

2. “There should be a pay-off for this.”

“If she gets to go to Lapland, she shouldn’t get any presents.”

3. “Why is the teacher making us listen to this?”

“She must enjoy our misery. She must relish our envy.”

4. “Did she actually say she’ll get to make presents with Santa?”

“That one is living on another planet.”

5.  “Why is she still talking?”

“We get it. Reindeers, snow, Santa; change the record.”

6. “When I’m an adult, I’m going to Lapland every Christmas.”

“And then who’ll be laughing?”

7. “Are these knots in my stomach jealousy or pure rage?”

“I swear, she”ll pay for making me feel like this.”

8. “When she gets back, I’m not asking her one damn thing about it.”

“And I’ll shred her photos if she comes anywhere near me.”

If you’re still not over it, why not get your own back by planning your trip this year?

Forget candlelight dinners and soft lighting – grab the girls and head to Finland this Valentine’s Day.

The beautiful country shuns the traditional loved-up romance of February 14th and instead calls the event ‘Ystävänpäivä’, which translates as ‘Friend’s Day’. Perfect if you’re a singleton or if you just fancy an alternative city break.

This winter is actually a particularly spectacular time to head to the Nordic country as it is classed as being the best time in 50 years to see the magical northern lights.

Enjoy a reindeer ride with mates in Lapland or if nightlife is more your thing, head to Helsinki. The city boasts a lively atmosphere and is packed full of contemporary and traditional restaurants.

Keeping with the Nordic tradition of sending friends cards and gifts, why not send your BFF a soppy card instead of your significant other.

Who said Valentine’s Day was just for loved up couples?
