14 Family Members to Expect During The Holidays [Gif]

arrested_development family members gif

With Thanksgiving is this week and Christmas in a few weeks, it's officially holiday season. It's the time we reconnect with our family members during the last few weeks of the year. Which means it can be a great time or a disaster depending on who comes.

Yes, we're excited for a good, hearty home cooked meal, family laughter, and love. However, not all of the people we'll be breaking bread with, are we excited about. Like most families we all have the dysfunctional people that will take up space at the table this coming holiday. We have the funny person, the drunk, and the kleptomaniac that help complete our crazy family members.  So flip the page to check out the who's who—and their personalities—to expect during the holidays.

Family Cook

We all have that one person in the family that is known to make the best meals. They put their foot in all their dishes and their dishes are usually most on the table. When your mom lists the names of who's coming to your holiday dinner, you always look out for their moniker.

Can't Cook Family Member

There's the family cook and then there's the one who can't cook. They're either banned from entering the kitchen during prepping hours or their dish barely gets touched during dinner. We all have them and as much as we love their efforts, they should stick to decorating duties or clean up.

Eat You Out a House and Home 

This is the member that you swear goes on a fast until the holidays come. They pile the food so high on the plate, scarf it down, go for seconds, and then fill their to-go containers. If they are coming to dinner, you know there won't be leftovers for later.

"I Remember When" Family Member

Ever try to forget that embarrassing moment you have in your past? Stay away from this member. Hope your boyfriend/girlfriend never learns certain family secrets about you, keep him/her far away from your family member that lives in the past.

Rich Family Member

We all have that one family member that is always loaded with money and is equally generous. They always remember your birthday and even if they don't see you but once a year, they come bearing gifts. Usually monetary ones that your bills will thank you for later.

The Underachiever

Remember your cousin that was either in and out of jail, kicking a habit, or still living on their parent's couch with no future plans? Yeah that's the family member we love but must not follow in their footsteps.


The Overachiever

He or she did everything right and are living the American dream. This family member is the one that will get an extra amount of praise when it comes to the discussion on what everyone has been up to. You know those conversations.

Baby Making Machine

Bebe's Kids came into fruition with this family member. They seem to always be pregnant when you see them and their three or more kids are always running around.

Media Takeout Informant 

Wonder how your business always gets around to everybody in your family, it's because your MTO informant family member found out about it.

Family Comedian

Need a good laugh, you always seek your family member that keeps the jokes rolling. They can turn any event into a comedy show and you love when they come around.

Family Drunk

Hid the booze from the one person in your family that never knows his/her limits. They don't claim to have a problem, but it wouldn't hurt for them to go to an AA meeting or many.

That one family member that will swipe your jewelry, money, or something from you with no remorse and if you confront them, the will lie through their teeth. You love them, you just don't trust them around your belongings.

The Grouch

Nothing is every good with him or her. They are usually the ones the little kids fear as they are always ruining the fun for others with their negative mood and disciplinary actions.

Favorite Family Member

They may fall in a few of these categories, but they are by far your favorite family member. They are the one you kick it with or at least speak to more than twice a year.

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

A post shared by Nashe if you’re nasty (@tinashenow) on Sep 28, 2019 at 11:04am PDT

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
