Hell No! If they have made jokes at your expense and forgotten about you then I’d say FU and never go and not give them the time or day. Holidays are to spend time with people you LOVE not LOATHE.

Just a question, why is it that they love your brother and cousin but not you?

I wouldn’t go.  Surrounding myself with miserable people doesn’t sound like a great way to spend an evening.  “Because they’re family” is a terrible reason to do anything, in my opinion.

@SouthernGirl- Yeah I still wouldn’t go. Just because you were a quiet kid is still no reason to call you names and ignore you. I would just flat out tell your mom no you won’t be going and you won’t be changing your mind. Just because they are family is no reason to go it just means there share some genes with you. Stay home with your FH and enjoy your stress free day!

Don’t go!  It’s your Christmas, and you’re an adult who can make your own choices.  Why make yourself miserable over Christmas?

Go only because you want to not “because they’re family”.  If you do decide to go, remember that you are better than these people; and, you’re doing do because you’re KIND and CARING enough to attend unlike them.

Just because you share blood with those people, it doesn’t mean they’re family.  They’ve treated you horribly.  I don’t think you should go, nor should you waste your time worrying about it.  You deserve better company during the holidays.

@SouthernGirl:  Ugh. My dad has a sister whom I call my b**** aunt, and I hate being around her. One Christmas, she guilted everyone on my dad’s side of the family in our city to drive 8 hours to spend a week at her place bc she was tired of always being the one making that drive. Um hello? You are one family in one car vs three families with children and gifts to tote along. It was not a fun week. I was pissed that I wasn’t allowed to drive myself separately, but I’m pretty sure my parents knew I’d lead an exodus of older children if I had my car, haha. 

It’s not worth having a crappy Christmas just to satisfy some idea of family. Besides, you and your Fiance are family, too, so you can say you already are spending Christmas with fam!

@SouthernGirl:  You have the right to do anything you want to do. It is up to you. What are your other options for the holidays, is your alternative being alone? Maybe you’d prefer being alone than with the family members who have been mean to you in the past. Either way it is your call, no one elses!
