There's no denying that Thanksgiving is one of my absolute favorite holidays... but with a surplus of "family time," awkward moments are bound to ensue. 

To ensure that there are no ~dull moments~ at the grown-ups table this year, however, I'll definitely be referring to each and every one of these Thanksgiving Day tweets. Not only are they seriously relatable, but they're bound to get you in the Turkey Day spirit.

Oh, you want me to have this paper done, come in on time, and continue my workout regime until Thanksgiving Day? I'm not superman, you know.

Thanksgiving seriously could not come sooner. I'm just trying to survive until I get to go home, and celebrate with my high school pals the night before. Is that too much to ask?

Running before Thanksgiving? Ha, count me out.

Thanksgiving is an undeniably stressful time of year, so if you need a break, take to Twitter to laugh it out. Your family will definitely thank you.
