Everyone loves Thanksgiving. Stuffing. Football. Kids table gossip. Pass that gravy and undo that belt, because we’ve got 16 hilarious tweets to usher in the holiday season.

First, remember the reason for the season.

Make it a priority to be punctual.

If you can’t, lie.

Thanksgiving is all about patience.

Shoutout to those doing the cooking.

No matter what you’re making.

When dinner starts, establish dominance right away.

Do a quick check for quality control.

When dinner is over, kick back.

Maybe check out the parade.

Or go around give thanks.

And don’t forget: be mindful of your food intake.
