Sitcom Interpretation - Teens at the Holiday Table

Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
The sitcom interpretation may be exaggerated, but sitting around the holiday table surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles, in-laws and teens can be quite entertaining. Or should I say - create interesting, uncomfortable moments and conversation.

I live in Florida, if the weather was nice we would eat holiday meals on the porch using paper tablecloths and napkins. My great aunt Dor would start tearing the tablecloth apart toward the end of the meal. This would erupt into a huge paper fight! Some family members would be appalled, the teens would love it and retaliate. It was interesting to see our friends and dates reaction to this fiasco.

Share your families tradition and sitcom moments. How do your teens handle the holiday table?
