(Closed) How do you and your SO split up the holidays?posted 6 years ago in Relationships

Now we live in the same town as his parents. We’ve decided to fly down the week before Christmas spend Christmas Eve with my family (when they do most of their celebrating) fly back early Christmas morning and have Christmas with his family. Hopefully the best of both worlds? 🙂
With a serious ex of mine, we alternated. We would spend Thanksgiving with my family and Christmas with his one year, then switch the next year and spend Thanksgiving with his family and Christmas with mine. That worked well.

Usually both of our families ask us what day the other’s family is celebrating and try to avoid that day for their own celebration so that we can both attend each other’s (we have awesome families!!). But if that doesn’t work out (we both have siblings with husbands/wives who our parents also try to accommodate) we either attend both, each for the same length of time (if they’re both in town, we both have local family and out-of-town family). If they are out-of-town (the farthest we have to drive is only about an hour and a half) we go by whose side we have generally seen less lately, or whose side we attended last year and then choose that way. I don’t find it difficult really. Every once in awhile we spend a holiday apart, I don’t see my mom’s side much and he doesn’t see his dad’s side much so if both of those Christmases happened to be on the same day we’d probably just go separately to our own. I mean yes it’s the holidays but for one day it’s not that bad to be apart. We always have our own little celebration on Christmas morning anyway.
