I am in a wonderful relationship and want to spend christmas at home this year and make my own dinner with my b/f sister.(Never made my own) I have for the past 20 yrs went to my sisters except for last year. Is it wrong of me to just want to stay home? My sister acts like I won't c them. What about another day? I don't feel I am wrong, I would like just to b home for once, its time u come visit me. What's your thoughts? Ty

I also prefer to be home. Holidays are so stressful and it's soothing for me to enjoy them in a comfortable place.

Tell your sister exactly that--"I had plans to stay home on Christmas but if you'd like to set up another day before or after the holiday, I'd love to come see you."

 Nope, you're not wrong. I much prefer to stay at home on Christmas. Even if it means that tons of people come to our house and I have to cook for them! It's so much easier with the kids, so they can play with their toys and stuff.

Nothing wrong with staying home. Your sister sounds a bit controlling. She wants things her way. It is easy to want to give in for the sake of peace, but then she will get her way and things will never change. Stay upbeat about it and ensure her it is not her, you just want to be home this Christmas.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to start a new tradition! I'd say cook at your home and relax and go to your sister's the next day :) my mom gets mad that I go to her house for Thanksgiving (super stressful) and then turns around and cooks a small meal the next day for my family. Not a big deal, I love cooking bit don't like the whole family at my house. I tried that one year, and everyone gave me such a hard time because I made everything homemade.....I vowed never to have It my house again.....so now I just do it for my hubby and kids :)

Ty I did and she said dad will b here and I said its dads choice and also she said dalton wants to b here and I said my son will b opening gifts with his mom this year. Yes he is 18 but I don't care first time I had them for christmas other then a little time since he was with his dad. I am not struggling this year and I thinks its going to a awesome christmas staying home.
