Thanksgiving is usually synonymous with family reunions, but that looks a little different this year, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urging against gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Still, even if you’re just having a socially distant celebration via Zoom, there’s no denying that you probably won’t be able to avoid all of the awkward moments that come with Latino Thanksgiving every year.

Thankfully, a few people on TikTok have spent some time hilariously poking fun at the familiar situations that inevitably pop up. From the unavoidable question of “Y el novio/a?” to the irony of getting all dressed up just to sit in la sala, here are some of the best TikToks that offer a look at the reality of a Latino Sangiving.
