The holidays are always the best way to end your year. Family and friends brought together to eat, drink, and enjoy. Everyone brings their best plates of foods. The night is full of surprises and fun. We all love our families, but we all have people at our parties who are expected to act a certain way. You'll understand what I mean after this list.
The Pre-Teen Who Is Treated Like A Toddler
I was one of these at one point in my life. You're not old enough to hang out with adults, and you're not cool enough to chill with your older cousins. Or there's just no relatives close to your age. So where do you get put? With the wildest bunch of the family — the kids. Hey, at least you get to eat first.
Agh yes, that one relative who hates Christmas. Or maybe just family get-togethers in general. Maybe three ghosts will visit them this Christmas Eve, but we all know deep down they love the bomb Christmas food and their family.
The Simon Cowell
If it's not your aunt, it's somebody. They ask personal questions, criticize you and hit your self-esteem, or just say the wrong things. They're ruthless, slightly ignorant, but you still love them.
Someone has to plan Christmas. They plan the food and make sure EVERYONE who is invited comes. They want to bring the family together. They're always stuck in the kitchen, and boss everyone around. But if it weren't for them, Christmas wouldn't be organized. Shoutout to whomever this is, you're the real MVP.
It might be the alcohol in their blood, or the joy of Christmas. There is always that one relative who is reminding everyone how much they love them, even if they don't know you.
There is no age limit when it comes to this job, you either get kids or adults. You get the kids hyped off of sweets or the adults hyped off of alcohol. There is no in between, may the odds be forever in your favor.
The Cool Guy
This is me. You're stuck in the middle of everything. You go with the flow and have fun with your family. Eat, sit back, and enjoy the night. (Maybe record too.)
