  15. Short story: I think every family is dysfunctional in one way or another. At Christmas time, there is alwasy an argument over what food is going to be made. One person wants one thing, another wants something else, and the bickering goes on and on! Who cares what food is being made. It's Christmas time and we should be thankful we even have food in the first place! I really don't think they get it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. Short Story: There are 6 kids in my family and we pick names for Christmas. Some of my sisters hope to get certain people giving them gifts because they are more generous...sometimes it's annoying and not in the spirit of giving.

  22. My dysfunctional family story: My sister refused to show up at my parents house for Thanksgiving a few weeks ago because I was there (I live 7 hours away and had traveled up). My parents pretended she didn't even exist and wouldn't talk about her or the fact she was MIA!

  37. My family is so crazy. To protect their identity, I'll say an older woman in my family that was very close to me took off with another lady from my familys boyfriend and married him. He's half her age, which you love who you love I guesss but it all happened so weird. Lots more to that story, too much for regular tv. :D
