Whew, that’s over with. Ticked all the Christmas boxes:

✅ Family argument
✅ Politics discussion that changes no one’s mind
✅ Organising people like herding cats
✅ Non-stop Christmas tunes
✅ Still a lovely time

@cbowdon Sounds about right. Thankfully the family I spent Christmas with mostly agrees with my political opinions at the moment - but I got to enjoy enough of that during Thanksgiving. 😬

@farmdawg It’s frustrating because you know no one will change their minds, but everyone is trying anyway. I just divert these conversations with a silly joke now, before anyone gets worked up.
