Default Holiday Mooches

People that come over on the holidays just to eat, or at Christmas so you have to have a gift for them.

I was around 4 when relatives showed up Christmas Eve, yes just like cousin Eddie except no RV. Flat broke, 42 cents to their name and no presents for kids.
Anyone remember when stores closed at noon Christmas Eve or there abouts? We lived way out anyway so being they had 3 or 4 kids mom and dad split our presents amongst them so they had something.
Totally sucks when somebody else gets the present you waited all year for.
I understand it had to be done. My parents paid them to leave sometime late January or early February. Literally gave them cash and money for cash to leave and never come back. Nothing like feeding 10 instead of 4. Cheaper to pay them than feed them for another month.

I find this impossible to believe. I saw him pulling toilet paper out of one of his neighbor's trees.
