After a successful Thanksgiving at which everyone pretended to get along, the Nelson family reports that they are already dreading seeing each other at Christmas.

“With Thanksgiving so late this year, it’s like we barely even get a break.” Ben Nelson, 38, told Velvet Hamster. “My brother won’t discipline his kids, his wife keeps trying to sell us essential oils and my parents just keep giving them sugar and then complain that they’re hyper. I need more than a month to recover.”

Nelson reports that his own kids are well-behaved and his wife is a paragon of spousehood. The Hamster attempted to verify but, at the time of publication, Ben’s brother Thomas was sending us straight to voicemail.
