Play This Drinking Game If You’re Spending The Holidays With In-Laws

Have yourself a merry little drinking binge.

1. Spending the holidays with your in-laws can be one of two things: It can be a cozy, cute bonding time.

And even — gasp! — a little fun!

2. Or it can be the impetus for a full-on, existential crisis.

3. Regardless of what this time of year has in store for you, you can improve your time with your in-laws with this fun little drinking game. (The number of emoji = the number of drinks to take.) So get ready to drink each time…

• Someone asks, “Are you sure you’re not hungry?”:
• There’s a weird-ass holiday tradition that they can’t even explain:
• You witness a bit of family lore/legend:
• You can’t tell if someone is wearing an ugly sweater ironically or not:
• You get stuck in a conversation with a cousin whose name you CANNOT remember:
• You still have to sleep in separate rooms:
• You’re in the same room as an awkward family fight:
• You eat a mysterious family recipe just to be polite:
• You’re told an AMAZING childhood story about your SO:
• They reference so many in-jokes that you feel like they’re speaking another language:
• You become part of a family inside joke:
• You have sex in your partner’s childhood bed:
• Someone brings up your partner’s ex:
• You realize you might like them more than your family:
• Someone tells you they like you more than your partner:
• Someone pulls you aside and starts gossiping about everyone:
• You vow to bring both families together for next year’s holiday:
• They genuinely welcome you to the family: pop some champagne 🍾🍾🍾

4. Here’s a version you can save to your phone or screenshot:
