We can probably all remember a time where the chaos of the season led to the family scrambling to find a store open on a holiday. For me, I'll never forget the year when a family dispute led my dad to storm out the door of my grandmother's house, pack up the car, and drive us to Walgreens for Thanksgiving dinner... Ah, memories. But it doesn't have to be that dramatic.
