Thanks to YouTube, the entire world can watch your awkward Thanksgiving home video

Every family has one: the annoying relative who mans the video camera on holidays, wandering from room to room and narrating the boring gathering in a voice that sounds as if he's welcoming three-year-olds to their first day of preschool.

Annoying relative: "Let's go to the kitchen! I wonder who's in there?! ... It's Nana and Uncle Andrew! ... Mmmm, smells delicious! What are you guys doing in here?"

Nana: "Making stuffing, asshole."

Just in case you spent your Thanksgiving away from home this year -- and therefore missed the chance to star in your own family's holiday video -- we scoured YouTube and found a random local family's Thanksgiving video that will make you thankful you did.

Happy holidays!
