Ah, the joys of family gatherings - especially when it's time for the annual family photo. 😅 One man in his 30s decided to continue the tradition of taking a big family Thanksgiving picture for Christmas cards. With 20+ people attending, he politely asked everyone to dress nicely for the photo. Little did he know, his wife's cousin Sarah's family would bring some unexpected drama to the table. 🙈

The Great Goth Outfit Debate: Resolved? 🤔

In the end, it turns out Sam's goth outfit was just a prank for TikTok, but things didn't go as planned. 😅 After some awkwardness and a few choice words, Sam apologized for putting the family in a weird spot. The man accepted the apology and decided to post both photos on Facebook. Now, the family can look back on this Thanksgiving drama and laugh (or cringe) at the memories. 😂🍂

Rebellious or not, excluding a 14yo for expressing themselves? YTA 😑
