This optical illusion just ruined my Christmas

Christmas is a time for contemplation, sharing gifts and enjoying time with loved ones. Not for being confused by optical illusions. But hold on to the eggnog and turn off the Strictly special because this Christmas optical illusion is mind boggling.

So there I was with Christmas all planned out, ready to settle down for the Great Christmas Bake Off and an episode of His Dark Materials, when a company called Jackpotjoy sends us an annoying optical illusion to entertain us instead. The picture shows a bunch 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.
