Hello loyal Gut Checkers. We just wanted to let y'all know that we will be taking a break today, December 24, and tomorrow, December 25 for the holiday. But since we love you so much, we're going to give you a GIF recap of what we'll be doing. Don't miss us too much.

First: drive to see the relatives.


Which inevitably leads to the ritual airing of the grievances.


This requires drinking.


Put all the hyperactive kids to bed. Spoiler: they won't sleep.


It's Christmas morning!!


It's totally snowing. (Probably not.)


Unwrap presents.


Take a nap.


Then we'll play Monopoly with our family. Our little brother will inevitably win and fuck us with about a dozen hotels on fucking Park Place.


Already bored of our presents, we'll go see a movie that will make us incredibly uncomfortable in the presence of our parents and/or grandparents.


Say goodbye to said relatives.


Go to sleep. We've gotta work tomorrow.


Gut Check is always hungry for tips and feedback. Email the author at or follow her on Twitter.
