My mom's husband's birthday is November 19th.
Thanksgiving is November 24.
My sister's birthday is November 26.
My sister "doesn't want turkey for her birthday" so we have to get together, all of us, my whole family, THREE TIMES within the course of one week.
These people are adults, dammit!
EDIT: Oh, I forgot to add something. Yesterday my mom told me that we should do Austin's Christmas a few days after Christmas, in response to me asking if we could start Christmas Eve around 5 instead of the usual 7.
I should compromise my son's first Christmas, but god forbid we have my 26 year old sister's birthday on the same day as Thanksgiving.
