I see them when I visit my parents (once or twice a year). I wish I didn't have to, it's very draining. I asked my parents if we could just hang out by ourselves, but to them it means you're a Good Person if you get your extended family around a big table. I feel bad about disliking it so much, because my relatives give me hugs and buy me presents, and endlessly ask me about my life. I try to reciprocate and it's awkward and tiring. I also have a lot of cold contempt for some relatives currying favour with my (well off) parents, or acting selfishly, or occasionally spouting racist/homophobic/right wing nonsense. I drink as much as I can, until I can just laugh aimlessly at it all or have a legitimate excuse to go to bed.
