This optical illusion just ruined my Christmas

Christmas is a time for reflection, sharing gifts and enjoying time with loved ones. Not to be fooled by optical illusions. But hold on to the eggnog and turn off the Strictly Special because this Christmas optical illusion is a blast.

Do you see those two red snowflakes in the picture below? They’re different sizes, aren’t they? But no. We’re told that the two snowflakes in this optical illusion are actually the same size (if all this festive fun has got you in the mood for more, check out our selection of must-see optical illusions).

So there I was, Christmas all planned, ready to settle down for the Great Christmas Bake Off and an episode of His Dark Materials when a company called Jackpotjoy instead sent us an annoying optical illusion to entertain us. The image shows a heap of festive snowflakes on a blue background. There are two red snowflakes: one surrounded by six large white snowflakes and the other surrounded by eight small snowflakes.
