I do miss simple Christmas as a kid. Open presents, get excited, play all day and get some food then go back to your brand new hoop and stick. Good times.
Hoop and stick? You were lucky hotchy, I used to get one or the other laugh

Christmas always seems to stir up some trouble, glad I knocked it on the head a few years back.

Your child's frist Christmas? They won't remember a thing.

GF sounds like an unreasonable selfish bh. Warning signs are there.

It is often women who get these ideas in their heads. In her defence at least she's (probably) being open about the grounds for her objection whereas a lot of the time it could be something else underlying, either more significant, such as a dlslike for your sister, or something very minor while a big deal to her, although the timing of the cooking falls in to that bracket.

I guess the equivalent irrational man will just stamp his foot and say 'No!' and present one of his spurious objections.

A modicum of cheer and empathy, while not what I would call my main attributes, are always boosted at that time of year (unless you have your own issues) and should be present in your mrs in sufficient quantities to lift your sister's spirits and avoid any misery.

Verdict: probably a bit of a cow.

We stopped seeing both families on Xmas day a few years ago, its no coincidence that I now love Christmas, we get up, bottle of fizz for breakfast, presents, drink, cook, eat, sleep, drink

Occasionally on Boxing Day we'll see the wifes family if they are about otherwise we see mates or relax

My family had the right hump yet years later they are all still falling out and arguing at Christmas, I suspect the hump comes from my siblings being jealous I cut the cord

Explain to her that travelling is s good thing to do on Xmas day - the roads are clear, it's more interesting than sitting in front of the TV and going around to someone else's house means less tidying and stress for you. Winner winner turkey dinner.

The proposal is the sister comes to theirs. Unless you're suggesting that the GF travels somewhere else, which isn't a bad idea.

Do people actually have christmas dinner at 12? We don't usually eat ours until 4 at the earliest. Gives everybody time to see other parents, grandparents etc

We aim to eat at 1 - we are grandparents, so that's us, 'kids' and their kids. We need to get it out of the way fairly promptly as wife's extended family arrive mid-afternoon.

Fair enough I've only ever known eating late and generally a big group, this year its 30 at my mums friends pub (they are closed) so just friends and family, then probably head to my old mans later in the night which is usually 15 or so
