I do understand but can tell u that the change will be very good.  I used to think nothing could compare to how christmas was growing up but you find out it can get way better.  BTW love your name parchedpickle.  Kind of makes me hungry.

In a way I am sad because I will no longer be able to spend some holidays with my family, but I am excited to start new traditions with my FH.

I live abroad away from my home country and my family, and although I’m very happy here and have made the choice to live over here, I do get emotional around the holidays and miss my family a lot.

This year I’m celebrating Christmas in my adopted home with my fiance and his family, and although I’m excited about that I know I’ll also be a bit melancholic missing my home country and my family. But I remind myself that family doesn’t go anywhere and Dec 25th is just another day, spending time together is what matters and not what the calendar says, and I know I’ll see my family soon enough. Life is an adventure and change is inevitable, I plan to make the most of it!

Maybe that’s why i’m bawling all the time.  I’m kind of the one that brings everyone together in my family.   I even manage, {some say manipulate (lol)} to bring together the family members that aren’t getting along to coming together for the holidays.  I’ll be moving six states away from them all to move on to the next step in my life, and I’m afraid this year will be the last of a lot of things.  I’m looking forward to the next step tho!! can NOT wait.

  Absolutely. Normally, what we would do in the past is we would split some holidays and some we would do on our own, because the day was too hard to divide. Now that we’re engaged, FI is adamant that we attend everything together. Christmas Day, we already split that up, no worries. It’s Christmas eve. I have done the same thing ever since I was a little kid. Now, we have to go to his side in the evening. That’s when we do everything with my dad. It’s the immediate family Christmas–and I’m going to be missing out. I already feel bad because my dad doesn’t do anything on Christmas Day. I love our Christmas eve party, and I don’t know his dad’s side all that well. I just want to stay at my own house, do my own thing. However, I do understand that it’s important. Plus, we really cut his dad’s side short on Thanksgiving, so it’s only fair.

  It’s an adjustment, but I’m sure it will be just fine.
