#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.
