Christmas Day for my family is a hectic, crazy and very filling celebration.
I leave with a full belly because Christmas ham and pavlova and I leave with a full brain from trying to remember how I’m related to everyone in the room.
But we have found a solution – and all you have to do is casually carry the below image (or tea towel if you want the real deal) around with you on Christmas Day.
You see, I have more cousins than I can count on my hands and until approximately 10 minutes ago, I thought I had a whole lot of second cousins too.
Now, I actually have no idea how many second cousins I have because it turns out everyone I thought was one is actually a ‘first cousin once removed’.
I’m shook and I feel a headache coming on.
This weird moment of discovery came courtesy of a viral Reddit post featuring a diagram called ‘The Cousin Explainer’.
It's really helpful and yet somehow really bloody confusing at the same time.
