My family lives 8 hours away so we alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas every year.

This year we were actually going to be alone for Thanksgiving. But got invited to my husband’s cousin so we will be going there. He hosts thanksgiving every year for his family and his wife’s family.

If my family was nearby we would for sure offer to host Thanksgiving as often as possible since my husband makes the best turkey EVER!

I actually really hope to have my family come up for a big Christmas one year. To have his family and my family all under one roof.

I think for you it will be all immediate family. And as long as your sister gets along with your FI’s family I don’t see what the big deal is? They ARE immediate family now imo.

My family and his family are on opposite sides of California, so we can’t combine.  His family lives in LA, my family live near SF.  I live in LA, so I’ve been spending Thanksgiving with my SO and his family, and then we spend Christmas separate (mine at my family’s, his as his family’s).  After we’re married, we’re going to alternate Christmas/Thanksgiving.  If I could combine I would!  I don’t think there’s a time that’s “too soon” to combine.  Do it!  It would make things SO MUCH easier!

My SO’s family is flying in this year! We’re all going over to a friend’s house for dinner.

My Fiance and I celebrate with extended family at my aunt’s house. Luckily he’s Canadian (with his family still living there), so there’s no Thanksgiving family conflict. 🙂

We go to my dad’s on Wed. He’s 90, so it’s easier for us to go to him. We go his dad’s Thursdayfor dinner. On Fri or Sat he goes to his brother’s house to celebrate with their mother.

My Dirty Delete goes with us to my dad’s. Her FI works all day Wed. She goes to her inlaws on Thursday for lunch and comes to his dad’s for dinner. She has to work Fri/Sat.
