For some reason, we have Christmas at my Aunt's house each year (step aunt--I only specify because we definitely FEEL like step children...even though we're all in our 30's). Anyway, every year we go to her house and we all spend the night...ONE night. Well, this year, we are to get hotel rooms...not all of us...just the step children. Mind you, they have a large house....like 4-5,000 square feet....yet no room for us. I know it's terrible, but next year, I'm not going to her house...it's clear that we're not welcome. I want to make plans to go to my sister's house...they also have a large house and she would be more than willing to accomodate all of us. She wouldn't expect us to stay in a hotel.....which I find ridiculous!
How would you feel?
P.S....don't know what category to put this in.

I agree with bseastrand , something had to change if all of a sudden they decide that you need to stay in a hotel. What does anyone else in the family have to say about that? If you feel you are not wanted there, then why don't you go ahead to your sister's house this year. If it was me, I wouldn't want to be a burden on anyone.

I think you should go where you feel more comfortable & same as for your children. What about asking your dad & s.mom if they would care to go to your sisters too? I'd talk to your sister and see what she feels about the situation. It's always good to share your feelings with other family members that might be thinking the same thing you are.'Happy holidays~
