Every year we have thanksgiving with my MIL (just the 5 of us).  My parents go to my dad's sisters house (my aunt throws it every year with most of the family members from my dad's side..maybe 25 - 35 people) .  This year my MIL has decided she's driving to the other side of the state and having thanksgiving with her aunt and uncle. 


Here's the thing, I don't enjoy being around my dad's family for many, many reasons.  

Since everyone on my dad's side will find out that we chose not to go to their thanksgiving ....Would it be terrible to have thanksgiving at our house without any other family or would you just go to your aunts house full of people you don't enjoy being around? 

* I'm thinking it will be best to just stay home, my dad's family might be insulted but like most of you said...the holidays are for making nice memories and enjoying the day.  Thanks to all who voted!

I would stay home and cook. That's what I want to do but, MIL has been begging Dh and I to have thanksgiving out of town. I am not a fan of being in someone's home I do not know or have not met previously. Plus this will be our first yr in our new home.
