I feel you! Families get so complicated with marriages and divorces.
In my family Thanksgiving is the big holiday and it is the one my grandmother loves to host. So we do Thanksgiving with my family every year. I should mention though, my parents are divorced so every year we see my maternal grandparents, my mother, my uncle and his daughter. I never get to see my father, sibllings or their children… they live in Wyoming and we are in California.
My Mother-In-Law does her Thanksgiving the day after, on Friday and we attend that.
We do Christmas Eve with my family and then we spend actual Christmas with my Mother-In-Law.
It will get even more complicated when my sister in law married her long time boyfriend because she and his family all live in Arizona.
Right now, this all works but this may change next year as we are expecting our first baby and I don’t plan to travel on Christmas with a child because I want to start developing our own family tranditions so we may host and if people want to see us or the kids then they’ll make the effort to show up.
