This year is my year to host Christmas for my extended family. We host every other year rotating with one of my cousins, A. Last year there was a huge hulabaloo bc cousin A declared she was hosting Christmas on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day. Usually every year we go to cousin B's house on Christmas Eve for dinner before church. Well A & B are twins and worked it out amongst themselves.
Since A was hosting Christmas Day on Eve, presents and such, my mom extended a simple invite to any family that wanted stop by on Christmas just to have some place to go that they were welcome. Cousin A flipped out at me stating we were undermining her hosting and what not.
So this is our year and my kids have already been talking about it for at least 2 months. Well we had family over today for cake for someone's birthday and out of the blue Cousin B declares she is hosting Christmas this year and going into the rotation. SO... I didn't say anything just finished my cake but my husband said well isn't it our year to host? And cousin B says well I just bought a new house so I am doing it.
I'm livid, I literally didn't say a word. I got up walked away and got into the shower. Thankfully when I got out everyone was gone! I'm mad, it was out year to host. I don't see why she can't just host Christmas Eve. More importantly I think she owed me the decency to talk to me first before declaring it to the entire family.
Would you be upset? I'm on the verge of telling everyone to F off after some other things that happened today. :(
