‘Tis the season for bright lights, cookies, gift wrapping, and in-laws! Some of you are already drinking simply knowing you’ll be spending lots of “quality time” with the in-laws, while others who are blessed can’t wait for the chance to hug their in-laws hello.

Here are three times your mother-in-law is bound to make you sob into your eggnog or latkes at the holidays. Grab the tissues and some chocolate. If your MIL is a real “sweet” one, add Xanax to that list.
