The holidays can be a lot of things. They can be a time to express love and gratitude, to cuddle up with family and friends and let them know how much you care. They can also be a time full of stress, petty fights, and a depressing focus on materialism and who has external markers of success. Last, but certainly not least, perhaps the best way to take advantage of the holidays is with loving trolling, pranks, and call-backs to inside jokes.
My mom played the best prank ever on Thanksgiving 10 years ago. Reddit, have any of your parents ever pranked you during the holidays?
When I was 10, my mother's family decided to come up from Guatemala and pretend to be Americans so they could "experience" Thanksgiving for shits and giggles. We had about 12 people to feed.
When it came time to prepare the turkey I was ecstatic. My train of thought the entire time was "HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT!! I'M MAKING DINNER AND IT'S GONNA BE A-F*CKING-MAZING!! YEAH!!"
