Hi everyone! I hate my mil. She's hosting Christmas day this year instead of her sister. She refuses to eat at my house or whenever I cook. Should I bring cookies to her apt? Should I be spiteful and not eat her horrible cooking? Tell me your opinion. I don't even think she Is worth my cookies!

Why act like a little kid at a holiday meal and make others uncomfortable?

I agree that's why I posted so everyone can voice their opinions and help me control my anger a little better

I think you should embrace the spirit of Christmas and go in love.

I would be the bigger person and go with no spite or resent and just celebrate Christmas. After all, it is a season of love. You don't have to love her, you don't have to like her, but be the bigger person and take a little something and "kill her with kindness", per se.

 I say go and be cordial. There will be others there so you don't have to worry about talking just with her. I think everyone will be in a good mood for the holiday too...hopefully. Have a good time.

I don't get along with any of them. They are all racist and tell me of my husband does nothing with our daughter or treats me like crap I should just take it because that's what women are supposed to do

 I'm so sorry. Maybe you should stay home and have a dinner with your husband and daughter then. I think it would feel more like a holiday that way, instead of feeling terrible around others who treat you badly. Especially this way.

You would think your husband would want to spend his 1st christmas in your new home with his daughter
