As we head into the holiday season, do you get that warm and fuzzy feeling as you remember the family sitting around the dinner table, feeling grateful, celebrating each other and sharing delicious traditional food? Or is it more of a feeling of dread and anxiety as you anticipate drunk Uncle Henry, your overbearing grandmother, your dramatic, attention seeking sister and the overall chaos in the house? Do you cringe when thinking about the family secrets seeping into the living room as you all sit around pretending they do not exist? Isn’t it interesting that it takes a holiday for your family to decide to introduce your dad’s new wife and her two young kids, your brother to surprise everyone with his new boyfriend or your teenage cousin to announce she’s pregnant?
