These gatherings create memories that last a lifetime. It is a time to connect with one another again. From the little arguments, to the happy smiles and the wacky family members you only see this time of year.
It goes without saying that entertainment is guaranteed every single year. Here is a little breakdown of our family gathering experiences.
#1 First things first – the food!
#2 The auntie that always drinks too much wine and sometimes wears strange hats.
#3 The interrogation – “When are you getting married?” “When are you having children?” “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?” “How are your studies going?”
#4 The cousin who isn’t actually your cousin that everyone just refers to as your cousin.
#5 “Back in my day we used to make friends – not sit and text all day.”
#6 All the uncles that appear out of nowhere.
#7 “You are so handsome, I bet you are breaking hearts out there!” Yeah, only my own.
#8 Family politics.
#9 No, I still do not have a significant other since you asked me this 5 minutes ago.
#10 Your grandma keeps asking you to stop texting on that “iPod.”
#11 Going home (finally) with a full belly and interesting memories.
Sometimes these reunions can be super tedious (or super crazy), but we wouldn’t trade them for the world. We will all most likely end up as the weird aunt or uncle anyway.
