(Comments are appreciated ) Does one need to spend the first Christmas with the one’s inlaws?

I told my husband to go on his own!!!

Although I was planning to go,  I asked myself, why do I have to go exactly ?

Guys, thank you very much for the many comments!

I wish you all a happy merry Christmas!!!

I have decided to spend Christmas at my parent’s home!


Since this is our first Christmas as a married couple, my husband’s family reserved a pension ( guest house ) while father-in-law, mother-in-law, aunties all said we must come. My husband says we should go.

But do I really need to go along ?

Even though I do not want to go, I feel that it would be respectful to attend.

    What is disrespectful is telling your child, who is a newly wed, to come spend time with senior citizens, during a holiday that is not even recognized as a national holiday.

    Why are you even going there for Christmas ??

    Tell them that your own parents also reserved a pension, so you can’t come. Then just send your husband over there alone.
