The holidays shouldn’t be stressful, but let’s be real…they often are. Obviously we adore our parents and grandparents and siblings and cousins (and so on, and so forth). But sometimes, things get tense. Or at the very least, awkward

So let us help you break the cycle with these quotes about family that are perfect for sharing during the holidays. Or basically any time you’re subjected to gifted with several days of family time.

Because while some people out there might have a Hallmark-worthy holiday every single years, the vast majority of us are usually experiencing at least some form of low-grade drama. Whether Grandma is freaking out because the potatoes are overcooked, or Cousin Jerry and Uncle Ron are fighting again, or the conversation has turned to politics (egads)…we’ve almost all been there.

And sometime all we need to set things right again are a few well-timed quotes to remind us that we actually, you know, love each other.

So instead of getting mad this year, chill the mood with the below 15 perfect quotes about family.
