It’s Thanksgiving Day and while some of us are celebrating with our chosen families, others are headed home for the holiday and dealing with that most dreaded of holiday traditions… the extended family (especially the Trump supporters).

While there are contrary jokes aplenty about “the turkey won’t be the only one getting stuffed” and “the worst holiday for tops,” family is what has social media cracking up – and we have some of the best.
