12 Funny Stories About Family Reunions!

| Right | July 12, 2021

Dear readers,

July is National Family Reunion Month! I’ve never been to a family reunion. My family… doesn’t really get along. My partner has a huge family, but they don’t do reunions, either; everyone lives nearby or visits for major holidays. So my entire impression of family reunions comes from sitcoms and cheesy movies… and from the stories that turn up here at Not Always Right!

From what I can tell, family reunions – much like families – can be a mixed bag. Sometimes they’re full of warm and fuzzy heartfelt moments and joyous reconnections. Other times, they can be strange, hilarious, or just plain unpleasant.

We’ve rounded up twelve stories for you from our archives about family reunions and all the weirdness they entail!


Took That Photo Opportunity – A kid so cute that all the families want her around!

Even Old People Get Carded – This is either really sweet or really creepy.

Looks Are Relative – Some kids don’t look like either parent. What then?!

Family Re-Ew-nion – Oh, Grandma… no…

Helping With Their Ballooning Ambitions – We love that these kids were kind enough to ask first.

The Driver From U.N.C.L.E. – It sounds like maybe this family should stick to public transportation.

Warning Signs – That’s the trouble with family reunions: the expectation to talk to people.

Done With The Family Niceties – You don’t even have to be part of the family for a reunion to suck!

Swear On Your Prayer – God help them all.

He’s Gone Coco-Nuts – Maybe just bring him a slice of each and let him figure it out?

Her Argument Carries More Weight – Kids really do say the darnedest things…

The Birth Of Equality – The world needs more families like this one!
