How will you celebrate Christmas this year? Big party or something more cozy?

My DH's family always gets together for Christmas brunch and it's a relaxing, fun time where we drink mimosas and open presents. We always bring a honey baked ham. Growing up, my family was more formal and we would polish our silver and bring out our fine china for a more elegant affair. How will you celebrate Christmas this year?

    We plan on doing a little of everything. Christmas Eve day is his family, Christmas Eve&Christmas Morning are ours, and Christmas with my family.

    Leaving town Saturday to go visit Grandma and Grandpa #1 for their Christmas on Sunday. Visiting with Grandma # 2 and bio dad on Christmas Eve then heading back to town and heading to my parents house to stay the night. Do Christmas morning at my parents then the afternoon and Grandma at Grandpa #3 house.

    His family will do Christmas the following weekend since it works out better for his brother and wife since they will have their kids that weekend.

    Its crazy and stressful for sure!

    My FHs parents invited my family over to celebrate Christmas Day, so it'll be the first time we have a combined celebration! I'm very excited!

    Christmas Eve we will separate so he can go see his brother and his family and I can go with my family to see my grandparents. Then on Christmas day we will spend the whole day with my family at my house and my other grandmother and her husband will come over. We'll just open gifts, eat food and relax!

    On the 21st is his company Christmas party, the 22nd is Christmas at my moms with her side of the family. The 23rd I’ve been banned from our house (LOL) so he can finish wrapping my presents. Christmas Eve we go to his parents, and then Christmas morning is spent between the two of us, then brunch with my parents, then dinner at his Grandads house. This will be our calmest Christmas to date 😂😂

    I think we're going to go see a movie or something. The theater is always dead on Christmas day. If not that then probably just hang out at home and play games/ watch movies all day =] perfect day for me!

    We spend time with my dad’s side and my mom’s. We see my dad’s side on Christmas Eve. We’re all adults now and it’s very relaxed. Some of the uncles end up falling asleep after dinner lol

    My mom’s side on Christmas ends up being a bit of a party. There are two young kids which makes Christmas that much more fun. Also there’s a ton of food and wine to share and enjoy.

    We are traveling up to Nebraska to spend Christmas with my family, we have spent the last few Christmases in the south with his family. Its always a fun and relaxing day but it has been time to visit my kin up north. We will spend Christmas eve with my dads family and Christmas day with my mother and a few family members. Hoping for a fun and snowy Christmas!

    We're apart this year, just the way PTO and family worked out. I promised my mom I'd go to her place and spend christmas with her. We're going to connect with both our moms in New York on the 23rd, super excited.

    Christmas itself is all over the place, but there is always a ton of food. We do ducks for christmas every year

    My Christmas growing up were always huge family get togethers. Now they are really small unfortunately. All of my cousins moved so it's a lot harder to get people together. This year my parents will be at my house on Christmas Eve and will leave on Christmas. I'm going to my cousins the Saturday after which is normally larger but seems to be getting smaller every year. I miss big Christmas!
