It's nice to go home for Thanksgiving, but after the turkey is gone and you've been at your parent's house for over 24 hours, you will likely start to get a little restless. Twitter user @Jenndangerous took full advantage of everyone's cabin fever with a simple request: Show me the weird stuff.
Specifically, the weird stuff in your family's home. You know what they're talking about. The cursed dolls, egg cup collections, and terrifying clowns paintings that you tried to ignore growing up, but which still lurk, dusty and neglected, in your folk's house. Sometimes you'll even get shoved into the junk room, which consists of a mattress surrounded by junk. (speaking from experience here) You visit them every holiday, but they haunt your mind all year long!
Cause we all know how weird it is to be staying in your childhood bedroom. Riddle with old band posters, and junk you forgot you even used to own -- it always tends to feel much smaller than you ever remembered. The strangest part of it is how little it's changed. It can be a bit unnerving to realize that years have past but Mom still hasn't moved anything in it. Time to let go!
@Jenndangerous was really just tapping into what everyone was thinking about already.
In response to this request, people really delivered with pictures of all the extremely weird stuff leering at them from every corner. Some of these made us wonder if maybe we had it good:
There should be a Weird Parent's Stuff museum. We would totally pay to see something like that.
But this weird thing is actually sweet:
Aw. That's why we go home for the holidays. It's usually worth it.
