    Let's talk about how awkward our holiday traditions are? Who's the drunk in your family? What's the worst present you've ever received or given?

    Wort present was a tin.of half eaten homemade beef jerky. They brought their tin instead of the one they meant to give me

    One year after arriving at my parents home, I demanded to be driven back to where I lived approximately 45 minutes after arriving there. This was the last Christmas I had which took place quite awhile ago. I seriously contemplated everything on that drive home in silence and decided to never celebrate any holiday again

    Jehovahs Witnesses make up most of my family so at most we'd meet up for big family dinners with no fanfare or celebration really. No holidays celebrated, to remain "apart from the world".

    It's almost as if holiday's are at such a frequency of happening that everyone is just glazed over constantly in this fake realism that is life. Instead just inducing constant pressure to get wasted or high during the repeating cycle of events until everyone is one depressed motherfucker

    Its a blur from the 24th to the 3rd. I just try to ignore it and not throw up in the process.

    I'm the drunk, obviously.
    My holiday celebration is usually sitting around getting shitfaced while my boring relatives listen to a CD of my genius cousin playing crappy violin. Or if we're really lucky we get to listen to an hour of it live. :banghead:
    The highlight is watching the poodle walking upright, wearing clothes and opening his presents.
    I fucking hate the holidays.

    I'm not sure which family I want to avoid more this year, my own or the in-laws. All are equally horrid in different ways. :banghead:

    Assuming that neither are "at your house", I'm sure you should be able to avoid both!

    Don't I fucking wish! Last year I didn't go home and we got invaded by his relatives. To be clear, neither of us invited anyone lol. I'm thinking we might escape up to Whistler for a few days. People can't crash a party if they can't find it ;)

    Mine wouldn't either (mostly because they don't know where it is). But his are ruthless. It's all MIL, she'll invite people to our house and then send a message that they're coming. Like wtf host your own family and leave us the **** alone :mad: :mad:

    I wouldn't answer the door.

    You could use my favourite method of ridding yourself of uninvited guests: Open the door and say "Shit, we're on our way out, and in a big hurry", grab a jacket and shoes, lock the door, and get in the car. Do it quick so you basically leave them standing there on your front step.

    I so would. Mr. Wrecky is waayyy too nice for that. He doesn't want them here but when they show up its like "well they are family".. then I make him deal with them while I drink whiskey is the bath.

    How does someone that "nice" handle being around you without dissolving into a puddle of mush, crying in the corner?
