Anyone who's ever had a traumatic Thanksgiving experience knows this tradition is the first to go. My family learned this the hard way when I was a teenager.

This guy's step-grandfather brings up "his father's death" every single "Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner." Think that's not bad enough? He always goes into great detail "about how he walked into the kitchen to see his father's body on the floor with his head blown off."

Not the best way to make the rest of the family hungry for a huge meal, that much is for sure.
