Surviving the In-Laws this Holiday Season

Hartford York Hats - Men's Leather Muskrat Trooper from Crown Cap - The Muskrat TrooperThe title, Deck The Halls, Not Your In-Laws, is the best part of a Psychology Today article. The shortcomings of the article are:

1. it’s just too short; and,

2. the suggestions made are too obvious–rather in keeping with yesterday’s post, I know. But I think you’ll agree when you read this recommendation: “Look for solutions. Think about modifying or breaking with tradition. If this means limiting visits with in-laws, keep their feelings in mind.”

Anyway they totally forgot that the absolute best method of winning over recalcitrant in-laws has always been to buy hats. For the in-laws, for yourself, your spouse, the kids – doesn’t matter. Hats break all boundaries – sort of like music is known to sooth savage beasties-in-law.
