Good Suggestions about surviving Christmas

with my Republicon relatives. Posted about an hour ago that I am dreading spending time with TrumpHumpers:https://www.democraticunderground.com/10029915714

Here are the great suggestions I got:

In summary:

Go and lay down the law of no political conversations: 3
Go and support Mom: 2
Go and duct tape oral cavity: 1
Go with Pro Democratic shirts, videos, information:2
Go and hide a recording and speaking Parrot in Christmas Centerpiece: 1
Go and start an argument about the best Football team:1
Go and spike the punch: 1
Go and organize a family duel: 1

Don't go, call in sick: 13
Don't go, get invited to visit a sympathetic DU'er: 2
Don't go, volunteer: 1
Don't go book a cruise, spa or other sunny vacation: 3
Don't go, roll naked in nettles for a similar experience:1

On the Fence: 3

(Please don't check my math, because I didn't.)

1. I didn't see your OP

but I like the suggestions you got. It put me in mind of a post here from a duer who had to endure Thanksgiving dinner with a MAGA hat perched on some relative's head, which made me think this: carry a pussy hat in your coat pocket, and if someone shows up wearing a stupid MAGA hat, slap on your pussy hat. No words need be exchanged--if they are allowed to wear their hat without exciting comment, so should you be.

3. Yes a silent hat stand off!

I will do this if I decide to go. There is only a 10% chance that I will go. (My old mother is supremely talented at laying on guilt trips.)

2. So...........

..............you're decision????? We're all emotionally invested in this now!!!!!! How can we focus on anything until we have resolution???? Think of how this effects the 2018 elections! How can we volunteer, campaign, fund raise and resist with all our hearts when half of our heart is in your hands?????? THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!!!


What ever you do, Happy New Thankxkristmas Year!
