17 Funny Things That Happened at Family Gatherings

The collective weirdness of anyone’s family has an obvious correlation to how bizarre family gatherings can wind up being. Even the kids end up being little freaks, like the three-year-old who put Band-Aids on his eyes, locked himself in the bathroom and proceeded to freak the hell out during Thanksgiving dinner. 

Redditors have recalled more of the most hysterical things that happened when the whole clan got together, and a special award goes to the person who walked in on their grandparents having sex and ran to tell their parents about it, only to walk in on them having sex as well.
