did anyone gif this before

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Holidays!

I just had a thought… (I don’t know if anyone has discussed this before): Why did they exchange embarrassed facial expressions when this was all in Sherlock’s mind?

This makes me think that maybe John has said something in the past (off-screen) along the lines of “man to man”, and they were both too scared to continue; or that Sherlock is aware of John’s feelings for him and so rejects him.

Please feel free to add anything to this.
