    16 Things Mixed-Race Kids Can Relate To

    You're the best of both (or more) worlds.

    1. Celebrating twice the cultural holidays each year, and receiving twice the presents.

    Who says you're not cultured, huh?

    2. And if those holidays fall within the same month... well then, you'd just come up your own traditions.

    3. Hanging out with one side of your family and feeling a little bit like this...

    Some families have a black sheep. Some families have a tan one.

    4. Hearing this everytime you meet someone new:

    5. Listening to strangers at the bar attempt to guess your ethnicity is now a drinking game amongst you and your friends.

    Filipina?

    Serbian?
