Agree with PP who said this argument isn’t about Christmas eve in particular, it is about control. If you or your Darling Husband caves, that would set a really unfortunate precedent and would give her reason to act like a toddler next time she doesn’t get her way. My Mother-In-Law also has issues with relinquishing control and the way Darling Husband and I have managed it is by talking everything through before we make a final decision (consider all aspects of the situation) then making a well informed decision and refusing to discuss it with her further. Sounds like you two thought it all through and came up with a very fair compromise, now you need to let her know that is what is happening and it is not up for discussion because it is decided.
