If Mushrooms Were Guests At Your Dinner Table

November 15, 2020

This year, holiday planning probably requires more coordination of FaceTime calls and Zoom links than ETAs and table settings, but the holiday season is still special nonetheless. While our living rooms will likely have smaller crowds and more faces on screens, we got to thinking of the good old days. You know, when you could hug anyone you wanted and jam your big family around the same table. All that reminiscing had us thinking: What would it be like if mushrooms were guests at our dinner tables? 

We considered everything we know about each variety, including their Zodiac signs, to determine their stereotypical holiday dinner party role, and the results are pretty spot on and hilarious! Which mushroom are you at family gatherings?
