  • We stopped the ridiculous visiting family obligation thing about 10 years ago.    I can (and do) visit with them several times throughout the year. I don't feel obligated anymore to do it just because it's the holidays and and you're expected to.     I saw my mom this past weekend for Christmas, and I will see other family members in January for a late Christmas.  That way we can be free to enjoy the actual day in peace, quiet, and Chinese food.

    All of the “undesirable“ relatives were winnowed out of our celebrations years ago. We’ll send them a card, as always. 
    So there is no dread, no anxiety, and no obligation to endure miserable jerks at Christmas.  This post was edited by Don Barzini at December 12, 2018 6:50 AM MST

    The only one I visit with is my father, we always have a good time laughing and joking around. Other than that I'm kind of a recluse. Sometimes my brothers would visit and I'll just be like "oh hi" and go about my business while they just hang around.

    I'm looking forward to my niece and nephews being here this year.  I've been hounded to make lasagna for about 15 so it'll be a busy day, but fun. This post was edited by Thriftymaid at December 12, 2018 7:37 PM MST
