My husband's family doesn't really have anything to do with us. That's fine with us. I've actually ran into my MIL and my husband's aunt at Dollar Tree and had them ignore me when I tried to engage them in conversation.Yet when we tell them we're having our own dinner at home and won't be travelling the 2 hours to his cousin's house that day,they get pissed.
Seriously? What makes them think we'd want to spend the day with them when we never see or her from them any other day of the year?

That's too bad that people have to act that way. Just tell them at least with you not being there, they will be able to discuss you all behind your backs, like they probably do the other 364 days. That's your gift to them this year! And be thankful you have avoided the negativity for the day.
