I have spent 3 Christmas days with my boyfriend now. One thing I wasn't ready for was the family-themed Christmas dinners. One year it was mad for plaid, the next year it was the 80's and this year it was a Whoville Christmas. I never really understood why they had a different theme up until this Christmas. In 2013 one of the patriarchs of the family passed away and in an effort to make everyone's favorite grandma love Christmas again they decided to make a themed dinner party instead of the traditional Christmas dinner. What has ensued is hilariousness. Although I have only been around the past 3 Christmases this is one thing I look forward to every year. Seeing everyone show off their hilarious costumes is my all time favorite!
