How do you handle being around your toxic and dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving?

I am learning of tips. Wondering what some are. My sister is the most disturbing member but my father and others are disturbed also.

    Disturbed? Not sure what you mean. You gave no details. Maybe you're a teen aged person and are in the "i hate everyone" phase. Just do thanksgiving and get it over with.

    You sound pretty dysfunctional too. Just because you feel the way you do doesn't entitle you to expect others to be other than who they are. It sounds like you are the one that has a problem of your own making.
