I've discovered that family gatherings are nicer when I add alcohol.

They just have a weird thing about drinking around family. My moms side it 10 times worse. Some might faint. All other gatherings are held at churches or community centers that do not allow adult beverages. Afterward... HUGE YES!!!!

That is pretty much so a cultural thing here, though. A common with locals. We get tore down at many other functions, away from prying eyes, but family ones are off limits. That includes weddings.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
