15 Best And Worst Things About Going Home For Thanksgiving

Let's be real: There are lots of ups and downs, but in the end, it's always nice to be home. Make sure to check out the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC at 9 a.m.

The bad:

1. The traffic is so ridiculous that you'd almost prefer sitting alone on the floor in your own apartment eating Chinese food.

2. Your dad doesn't like your new boyfriend.

3. Your adorable grandmother tells you that you gained a few.

4. Your mom is still terrible at hiding her feelings about your new haircut.

5. Your aunt still thinks this is an acceptable contribution to dinner.

6. Your family starts bickering, but all you want to do is eat your body weight in food.

7. Your mom asks you if you think being a barista is a career.

8. Your dad asks you if you have any "savings" yet.

9. You have to convince a lot of people from high school that you are much cooler now.

But don't worry! Here's the good:

10. You get to watch your dad crown himself the Turkey King as he carves the bird.

11. You can eat a whole plate of this if you want to. Zero judgment.

12. If you have a big family, there will always be a new baby around to take most of the attention off your unemployment.

13. You get to see your dog.

14. You and your siblings can act like 12-year-olds while the turkey is in the oven.

15. You'll feel like a king at the end of the meal when you're sitting on the couch.

You can put on the biggest, baddest sweatpants from the '90s and watch the parade.
