@Wrisley:  It is unfortuante that your son cannot be included but I think that with these big family functions it’s never convenient for everyone and immediate family is usually considered first – in this case, your son would be their extended family.  Is it possible for you to arrange for your son NOT to go with his father for that weekend so he can participate?

Personally, I’ve never understood these elaborate family holiday traditions as my family never did them.  We did Christmas on Christmas day (gasp).  We spent the morning at home and in the afternoon everyone went to my dad’s parents place (when I saw everyone I mean everyone – inlaws and all, if my mom’s family was in visiting they came along to my dad’s parents too, everyone was welcome). 

Here it seems common to have family Christmases throughout the month of December and I just don’t get it.
