hard time with EX

So EX DH wants my girls for Christmas eve and Day. I told him no only 1 day. He got pissed but too bad!

The reason I sad no to both days is this:

Christmas Eve is a big one for my family. My brother, SIL and kids, My sister ,BIL and Kids, My Aunt and My cousins with their kids they all are coming down to my parents, Christmas Eve. His family doesn't do a big Eve.  So I told him he can have them on Christmas Day since his family does do a BIG Christmas Day. I don't.

I think this is fair for the girls and for this Holiday.  He does't seem to think so.  He keeps on calling me and MIL keeps calling also. If he can't share them for Christmas I just might keep them both days and to hell with him.

Do you think this is fair? If not what would you do different?

Totally fair. My ex used to pull that crap too & his mom would also get involved. I let them know a long time ago they could have her Xmas eve since that was a big one in their Italian family, but I would get all day Xmas. Now me, my husband and all of our kids go to their big Xmas eve! Weird I know...

To each a day, matching with your families plans? Doesn't get more fair than that

Christnas he gets them either Eve or day, whichever one works for us. He has them on the weekends Fri- Mon morning. I work weekends.
