20 Times Harry Potter Perfectly Captured A Postgrad Thanksgiving

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to avoid eye contact.

Posted on

As the 2015 holiday season approaches, many cries will be heard across the globe by people graduating from the kids table.

That's right, you're an adult.

Who better to outline the unspoken rules of adulthood than the characters we grew up with?

1. When your entire high school rolls into the local bar on Thanksgiving Eve.

2. For those who went a little too HAM before the turkey...

Let's hope we only vom up snitches today.

3. Super adult expectations for the Thanksgiving feast.

4. ...and, of course, fulfilling those expectations.

5. But not before eating the main course like a savage.

6. Trying that food that you know you still don't like.

Because ~adults do that~

7. Greeting that relative that keeps posting racist articles on Facebook.

8. And trying to avoid the incoming questions about your job, love life, anything but your current Netflix binge, etc.

Do you like your job? How is grad school? Are you enjoying being on your own? Seeing anyone special?

9. (...but having to answer them anyways).

Yeah I like my job, grad school is hard, I didn't cry yesterday, I have a new Tinder match.

And the Office is just as good the third time through.

10. Trying to keep up with the "athletic" cousins playing football.

"I'm gonna go check on the turkey."

11. ...and dealing with the consequences.

Do I look like Tom Brady to you?

12. FOOTBALL. FOOTBALL. FOOTBALL.

13. And by that...we mean falling asleep on the couch.

They say there's only a little bit of tryptophan in the turkey, but that doesn't mean you can't pass out for 5 hours.

14. When the conversation turns political...

15. But somehow get dragged into it.

Again....~adult.~

16. You will quickly turn to your very important work emails for refuge.

(aka your Happy Thanksgiving texts)

17. So you do what adults do best...

18. And steer the conversation to something bearable.

GUYS I'M SO THANKFUL FOR THIS DOG, AREN'T YOU?

19. Overall, Thanksgiving is kind of exhausting as a postgrad.

20. But there's nothing quite like coming home again.

Happy Thanksgiving, Harrys!
