Mom Goes So Crazy Over People Visiting For The Holidays, She Turns The House Into A Full Blown Museum

Everyone knows that mom loves to show off when it comes to the holidays. The house is the cleanest it’s ever been and this is *the* time to show the rest of the family all of the great things you have at home.

1. Mom makes sure that the house is spick and span.

There’s not one piece of dust in the entire house.

2. Literally, every piece of art you have ever made gets hung up so mom can show off her little artist.

Even when you’re 23 and that drawing is at least 20 years old, she proudly places it on her wall of fame. Can you not?

3. The furniture gets covered in that super comfortable clear vinyl to make sure that no mess is made.

4. All of the fancy china gets dusted, washed and arranged just so to show off how *fancy* you all are.

5. There’s always an interactive photo album experience that low key forces people to discuss these historic events.

Mom: “Here is little Marisola on her first Christmas.”

Tía 1: “Hay. Que linda estaba.”

You: “¿Estaba?”

6. Speaking of interactive, there’s always a family home video queued up in the living room.

*awkward*

7. At some point, mom gives all the tías a house tour – even if they were there last week.

And you begin to panic whether or not your room is clean.

8. Like the docent at the museum, there’s always that one prima who has to be the babysitter.

9. And, yes. The kid’s crafting corner during the holidays always gets messy with at least one innocent victim.

Remember all those time you tried making those little necklaces at the science museum? Yeah. It’s like that.

#ThanksgivingWithHispanics is the Realest Thanksgiving Depiction Ever

Thanksgiving at our Latino households isn’t the usual cookie-cutter family set-up we see in the movies. Oh no. #ThanksgivingWithHispanics nails how our dinner goes down…

There’s always so much damn prep work before everyone arrives.


No one better dare go into my room, but every inch of the house needs to get scrubbed to give los tíos y las tías the impression that we’re suuuuper tidy.

You finally wear that outfit you planned two weeks ago just for the compliments.

It’s your day, girl.

It’s only a matter of time before all hell starts breaking loose and you just can’t.


I swear it wasn’t me! ?

Then suddenly, someone makes a comment about your weight and you’re just like…

I just have to fake happy for a few more hours, then I can ignore these people for another month.

You pray the food will be ready soon so they can stop with the uncomfortable questions.

Because we Latinos are late for eeeeeeverything. Surprisingly, even when it comes to eating.

Before you know it, your always-single-tía drops the “y tu novio” bomb.

WHO invited her??

Eventually, you get fed up and you put them in their place.

Bye.

Then mom gets involved and the headache begins.

Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for. The food is ready and you’re about to destroy it until…

You realized who cooked.

Eating can be a little confusing since you don’t know when you’re supposed to stop.

You get told you gained a little weight, but then you’re still getting served.

And mami offers you more food than you can handle and expects you to finish it.

Soon mami and abuelita are arguing over your eating for no reason.

All the tías start judging eeeeveryone.

Chismosas.

Luckily there are more cocktails than turkey.

Because it’s not a Latino party if drinks aren’t involved.

And it’s cute until someone has too much to drink and starts spilling the real chisme. ?

Whaaaat?? But wait, tell me more.

You can only take so much. You go to bed, not to sleep, but just to get away because no one is leaving anytime soon.

Between your tías high pitched cackles and your tíos mixing the dominos, you just lie awake until exhaustion finally knocks you out.

Just when you think it’s all over, you wake up the next day and there are tamales for breakfast.


God. Is. Real.
