You know it's a holiday family dinner when

We are celebrating Easter early
  1. Your conservative uncle is defending United Airlines
    "Don't you think they should've cooperated?!" Me immediatley sipping my drink "NO" him "they always accommodated me" me "because you're a white male" *sips my drink*
  2. My mother asks why I'm not wearing lipstick
    It's not a holiday if she doesn't tell me I look ugly in the nicest way possible.

  3. My dad asks if I'm still not seeing anyone.
    The answer is always "I am not seeing anyone." Embrace it folks.

  4. An expected guest (usually someone's new SO) is vegan and unfortunately there is nothing for them to eat, making it really awkward for everyone else.
    Carrots and celery tray?

  5. mum: "jessica, you sure you can handle it?" (hosting Sunday lunch)
    I've organized a 500 delegate, international conference before... yeah, I can host lunch, Ma! (Yep, I'm *that* daughter! But really, c'mon!)

  6. My parents start packing up the food early in a thinly-veiled and very awkward attempt to make everyone leave.
    People ignore them and just take the food back out of the fridge, thank God. My parents are terrible hosts.

  7. People start arguing over politics (which is not allowed at MY table, so I always want to host!)

  8. My one brother says he can eat whatever he wants and never gain weight, someone points out the restrictions 4 of us with celiac disease have to follow, someone discusses my daughter's vegetarianism, and someone with a drink in his hand asks about my brother's recovery from alcohol addiction. Such a supportive bunch (not!) 😉💖
