15. Enjoy Your Family For Who They Are
Let's be honest here. You know that Uncle Vitold is always going to bring up how Obamacare doesn't work, and Aunt Helena is always going to worry about how there aren't enough red streaks in your hair. (I'm Polish, this is my reality.) You know all this, so it shouldn't catch you off guard and make you angry when it happens. Instead, come in there with a mockumentary like stance and Jim-smirk your way through it all.

They're your family, and they're hilarious in their eccentricities and quirks. And in the very least, you only have to put up with their insanity only temporarily. Make the most of it. Feed the animals.
