5 People You Will Encounter at Thanksgiving Dinner

Because Thanksgiving dinner is always a blast.

Thanksgiving dinner is a time where families come together and sit around the table to share stories, create memories, and celebrate quality time with one another. However, at every Thanksgiving dinner, there will be some people who have the most interesting characteristics that outshine the others. There are specifically five humorous ones:

1. The broke college student.

The broke college student is usually the one who wants to be there the least. They are sick of answering questions to how the school is going, their classes, their major, or if they have a boyfriend/girlfriend yet. Usually, they are dying through the semester and want to be left alone. The typical broke college kid is there for the free food and the naps. The best thing to do is leave them alone and send over some cash.

2. The "Newly Wed"

The Newly Wed is any couple who is recently dating, engaged, or married sitting at the dinner table. Sure, they're adorable, but who doesn't "aww" at romance every now and then. However, just because you're in love doesn't mean you have to finish each other's sentences, nor feed each other dessert and secretly hold hands under the table. This is a family dinner, not a wedding ceremony.

3. The "Old Man" 

This is the old guy who usually sits at the end of the table and will never shut up. This guy usually goes on and on about his days being a boy and has the most descriptive stores. He usually eats the most of the turkey with loads of gravy and has the loudest laughs.

4. The sweet grandma

This is usually the traditional old woman in the family who does the extra cooking for the family. Usually, they prepare the desserts and side options. They are usually still dressed in an apron finishing off the last few dishes while answering the door. They're the best with the little ones and they show the most love.

5. The little kiddos.

Usually, this group consists of five to ten-year-old children who sit at the kid's table, or in between the adults. They tend to be the messiest and the pickiest eaters, avoiding mashed potatoes and stuffing. They are the cutest out of everyone and seeing them at dinner will make your heart happy, at least until they start crying.

Hopefully, these five people at your Thanksgiving table this year will tone down a little.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
