Your fridge versus your parents' fridge.

2. Baking holiday cookies with your parents. / Via

Or just watching while they bake cookies and then eating them.

3. Getting carded at your hometown bars.


"Um, sir, I'm pretty sure you would like to see my ID."

4. Your delightfully goofy relatives. / Via

Who knew they were so much fun???

5. Playing with wrapping-paper tubes.

Are you ever really too old for this?

6. Being forced to go to bed at a reasonable hour.


Because sometimes you don't need to play video games until 4 a.m.

7. Getting super into the holiday spirit.

Despite having denounced it as lame when you were a teenager.

8. People who actually put up holiday decorations.


And here you feel accomplished if you manage one string of lights.

9. Getting clothing as a present.

11. All the work parents put in during the holidays.


You literally had no idea.
