(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.
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.

Yall I am also learning Korean, so bear with me regarding the translations. I am translating as I understand and not literally.

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.
