Enjoy your time with your families today.
This time of year is really the only time people consciously think about spending time with their families and enjoying their company, so take heart and tell those around you how much you love them. Hug everyone extra tight and give your little/baby cousins sloppy kisses on their cheeks. They’ll remember them with a bit of disgust and a hint of fondness when they’re old but it gives them something to tell their future girlfriends about.
As this may very well be my last Christmas in the States, I’m going to enjoy every moment of it with my brother and father. Even if I am the one stuck making the entire dinner by myself.
