6 Holiday tips
1. When interacting it is best to not tell relatives, or parents, why you think their degree is useless.
- ie. “no mom, I am not going to take a Sociology course. Sociology is outdated.”
2. Hiding the cat in the snow does not impress anyone, except for the cat.
3. It is always best not to bring up religion or politics, especially with the older generation.
-ie. a.) “I shouldn’t have to say grace. It is inconsiderate to assume everyone at this table is religious”(although this is true, nobody cares, and you will get slapped upside the head, and/or, glared at for the entire meal)
b.) Grandma - i’m really excited to see the liberals win the election.
Uncle- they will put us in a deficite. Conservatives need to be in power.
Cousin- the conservatives are power hungry, money grubbers, the NDP are the only party that actually stands for the people.
Sister- The green party is nice.
*full on brawl*
4. Do not get involved when people are fighting over who’s recipe is better. If you are directly asked deflect the conversation to another food related topic. ( “Is something burning?”or, “We should have duck next year.”)Jazz hands and slowly walking backwards out of the room also works really well.
5. Do not wrestle with any child under 5, the magnets in their head will pull directly to any hard, sharp-edged surface, resulting in no-one talking to you for the rest of the day.
6. Teaching younger kids inappropriate Christmas song adaptations, is surprisingly frowned upon.
