Holidays with the In-Laws
Posted 03 December 2008 - 04:53 PM
This time of years always seems to be a little difficult. My FI and I have our on set of traditions for the holidays (he likes to be with his family and I like to be with mine). Can you guys please share or advise of how to get over this hurdle. Our families live about 75 miles from one another so the 1/2 days do not work well. I think I live in a bubble world and thought the guy just kinda went along the the girl.
please share any advise, story or your current trandition and how it changed

I hope you guys are able to work it out! I really sympathize with you, I undestand completely how stressful this situation can be.

Fortunately, his parents have conceded and decided to have xmas on the 27th this year. Yay! No more bouncing around. When we start having little ones though, I'm thinking we will propose to have the holidays at our house. They can all come and we can celebrate together rather than running around crazy.
GL- it's definitely hard, but maybe it's time you come up with some new traditions that will work for your both as a couple.

Usually most years we do Christmas morning with his parents and brother. Christmas night with my Mom and sister - unless they've gone to stay with my extended family. Most of the time my extended family has the big dinner on Boxing Day in TO, so we truck it down there if Im not working.

also - we are planning on getting a big enough house where we can host a lot of holidays and invite everyone together.
