Now once we have kids, we will rotate each Eve, but if you wanna see us on the day, you better be coming here, cause I'm not moving out of my jammies and putting together kids toys on the couch!!

Keeping my fingers crossed that everyone finds a good solution, and that I haven't cursed myself by taking on the responsibility myself!

It splits it up nicely and makes sure we still see everyone. I don't usually see my sister or my aunts and uncles as they mostly live on the west coast. My mom's brother (also my godfather) comes to Christmas eve as well so I do get to see him.

My dad lives on the otherside of the world and hates xmas anyway so i ring him and he's happy - although he whinges about it being xmas lol When he was here I would go to my aunt's I couldn't cope with him being so miserable all the time.
Since my dad left we have xmas at my house and my aunt comes up for xmas day. FI is in the army so if he gets it off its rare so his family shit out (shame!! lmao). He's going down in a couple of weeks for a couple of days but i'm not going thank god lol I can't think of anything worse than spending 24 hours with FMIL lol
Problem will be if we have kids, cause she can go screw herself if she thinks she is landing her and her hubby on us lol
You just have to do whats right for you and FI and they have no choice to but to accept it, start now tho and stick to it.

It's nothing new. All new couples and families go through it.

I couldn't do it...I know I am wrong for not compromising but it is so hard for me. I am not only and only child but my mother is also single now. I could not leave her and go enjoy myself knowing she would be alone. I just had to get this off of my chest.
Needless to say, this caused a big uproar because he sent Thanksgiving with me and I did not show up for Christmas at his parents' house until 7pm.
And for those wondering, it may have been simple for both my mother and I to go to his parents' house but my mother is a home-body and prefers entertaining at her house. So that was out of the question and no persuaded could be done
