I understand what you are going through. We have the same problem with Thanksgiving. This year I invited everyone to our house for Thanksgiving. My one sister-in-law stated that Thanksgiving was "her holiday" and declined. The other brother's family never even replied. I asked my Mother when we had chosen "our holidays"? She chuckled. I have officially chosen Groundhog's Day as my holiday.

Enjoy Christmas with your family and don't let your sister and "her holiday" ruin it.

Reading over this thread made me think about my own actions. I have to be careful myself not to try to make other family members do what I want them to do. I want to remember how wonderful it is to have people to love. And how many many ways there are to celebrate Christmas!

star so, how did it go?

I know this was November of last year, but after reading all the replies here, I was wondering how your Christmas went. What are you planning for this year?

In our family we never get together on Christmas day. Our big dinner is always the Saturday before Christmas. It is expected that each family will celebrate the actual day with their own kids at home (or wherever they choose to). This is something that was started when the first of us got married and we still do now. While we cannot always get everyone together, we do the best we can and enjoy each others company.

Lanar has shown a merry disposition
We have a small family and have always celebrated Christmas Eve together with me doing the meats, drink, desserts and people bring stuff and then Christmas Day we open presents with ou kids and I do a big turkey meal and whoever comes back comes and several has to go to the others sides or they stay home. I am not offended and figure the more leftovers less we cook that coming week.
