With the holidays in full-effect, it’s guaranteed that presents, sweet potato pie and collard greens are in your near future. So is spending time with an unruly the cast of characters called “your family.” Are you ready for it?

If not, it’s OK. Watch “#ChristmasWithBlackFamilies” and you will be, with bells on.

From your turnt up aunt to the family gossip to the AfroCentic Grinch, this sketch directed by comedian Aaron Lamarr Burleson for Issa Rae’s The Peak, perfectly and hilariously captures what tomorrow and the rest of the week for many of us will look like. It’s so good that you might even look forward to being stalked by your baby cousins half the night who want to play Candy Crush on your phone.
