The Places We “Grin and Bear It” Most Often During the Holidays

There's a new survey on the "awkward" moments that happen when you're around more family, and here are a few stats from it. 

We’re entering the holiday season where people spend a lot more time with extended family members.  There’s a new survey on the “awkward” moments that happen when you’re around more family, and here are a few stats from it.  1-in-3 admit to forcing a smile to pretend to enjoy a relative’s cooking, and 2-in-5 say they have forced a smile to pretend to like a gift.  Also, nearly all of the gen z members in the survey say they will grin and bear it when asked about their relationship prospects, future aspirations, and career plans. About half of adults say they struggle to figure out what to talk about with their relatives, which is why some people bail early from gatherings.
