'Tis the season! Snow, crackling fires, scarves, presents and passive-aggressively talking down to your Aunt Lisa when she asks why you "haven't found a special someone yet" for the third time in one night.

Yeah, we're talking about those family dinners that seem to plague the holidays. When will it be acceptable to just hit the KFC/Taco Bell drive-thru with your family and just be together in the time it takes to drive home while you eat your Chalupa? Damn.

Well, at the very least you are no longer surprised by what's going to happen at these holiday gatherings, because the same characters are always there. Here are the nine relatives at every dinner during this time of year, starring the flawless faces of our own E! Online readers! If you want to be featured in a future article, scroll on down to see how to get the chance to see your face on this site!

1. The person that takes home all the leftovers (starring @samanthaintags)

They probably bring their own Tupperware, or if they are really hardcore, they just shove those rolls and that sweet potato casserole straight into a purse.

2. The intense vegan/vegetarian (starring @tovasfabmom and @lalajanelle)

They say things like, "Mom, I thought you said we weren't going to have carcasses on our table this year!" 

3. The feuding duo (starring @jessica.mealey, @iheartjna and @klowy13)

These two make awkward silence an Olympic sport. And no one, not even the ones who are fighting, knows why this duo started hating each other in the first place.

4. The person "going through some stuff" (starring @katiejerabek and @natalyepho)

Divorce. Breakup. Illness. Unemployment. Someone is always going through "some stuff" when they arrive at the dinner table. And you're not supposed to bring it up, but after a couple glasses of wine someone always does. And that brings us to...

5. The drunk (starring @jaomanuson and @casemcgase)

They had wayyyy too much to drink, so they overshare because they "have a lot of emotions." And then they become extremely sappy, which is too much for a family dinner. They'll slur that "family is everything, you guys!" to anyone that will listen. And then, eventually, they end up crying for one reason or another. Also known as The Drunk Uncle.

6. The photo addict (starring @missheatherariana, @pepecarriles and @monicaq27)

They will upload no fewer than six photos to Instagram. Hashtags will include but are not limited to: #family #familytime #lovemyfamily #holidays #somuchfood #foodbaby #fall #Thanksgiving #foodporn and #sothankful

7. The changed person (starring @rozi_roti)

Last time you saw this relative, they were all about pink, sparkly Ugg boots, Taylor Swift and standing in line for the next Hunger Games movies. Now this same girl is covered in tattoos, is "so over" mainstream pop culture and spends her weekends turning discarded bathroom tile into works of art. What the hell happened in one year?!

8. The stranger (starring @nicolle_ancateu)

Who the hell is that woman sitting next to your cousin Nancy? At least, you hope she came with Nancy...or anyone.

9. The center of attention (starring @fluff_phi, @boooooooooooooooooooooooo, @yourtexasgirl and @daniellenaser)

This person demands to say grace so they can either get faux-choked up or they'll make a stupid joke. Their dinner conversation is basically a stand-up routine, but sitting down. They want all eyes on them, and you are terrified to find out what they'll do if attention strays from them for only a minute.
