Who’s Ready For Some Good Old-Fashioned Family Drama During The Holidays?

Stereotypes don’t always reflect reality, but many times there’s truth to them. For example, family drama, arguments, disagreements and conflict are bound to happen around the Holidays! So, get ready for it this year, because more families plan to get together than last year.

Almost two-thirds of Americans say they think at least one of their family members will get completely drunk at a family get together this year. The most likely culprit is — yep, your DRUNK UNCLE.  A third of people say an uncle is the most likely to get hammered.

Here are a few more fun stats on how your Holidays could go south in a hurry:

  • The worst topics to bring up at the table are politics, family gossip, and personal drama. Your parents are the most likely to bring up something that could start drama.
  • 39% of people say there will probably be some yelling.
  • 43% say it’s not uncommon for at least one person to leave early because of hurt feelings.
  • 48% of us expect to drink more at family get-togethers than we did at any other social event this year.  The #1 beverage that can ruin a holiday party is a tie between beer and whiskey. Wine is third, followed by tequila.
  • 54% of people said at least one of their family members will probably have to apologize.

The poll also asked about work Holiday parties:

  • 67% expect at least one coworker to drink too much.
  • 62% have dreaded work the next day because of something they or a coworker did.
  • 56% have worried about getting fired.
