anyone ever have Christmas dinner apart from your husband?

He said he doesn't want to go with us to my sister's for dinner. Christmas eve we're going to my mom's bc my parents are divorced. His parent's don't cook on Christmas. we were going there after the baby opened her gifts to exchange. Then to my sisters for dinner.

  • Nope my DH and I have always had Christmas together since we have been together. My sister didn't have dinner with her husband last year because he was in Afghanistan. I guess you just have to do what is best for your family.

    Good Luck!

  • I have 3 times actually. My husband is currently in the Army and this will actually be our first christmas together! He's deployed 3 times in our 4 years of marriage. What is his reasons for not wanting to go? I would be super sad. Maybe you could have a small christmas dinner with just him...that might be nice and great family time :)
