Thanksgiving has a lot of baggage, and has the tendency to suck the fun right out of family dysfunction. For many folks, there has been an effort to solve some of the family struggles, and yet they seem to come back with intensity when there is an overload of food, drink, and togetherness. In an effort to bring fun back, I would like to propose a round of family bingo for your Thanksgiving Day!
Each bingo card has 25 spaces, and it is essential to brainstorm 25 different annoying scenarios or challenging interactions that deserve a spot on the card. If you have a partner who is equally challenged by these family events, it may be worthwhile to come up with a few bingo cards, and potential prizes. It is not recommended to create cards for everyone involved, as this could result in some hurt feelings. Think of this as your own private round of “Cards Against Humanity.” Obviously, these sample cards could be customized to your own family issues.
