Holiday Family Gatherings

Kate, on December 13, 2023 at 08:19 Posted in WeddingWire 0 4

Hello community, Happy Holidays! Smiley heart

Now that you and your partner are married or even if engaged still, how are you spending your time over the holidays? Do you choose one date for one side of the family and another for the other side? Do you and your partner celebrate with each side separately? I know it can get tricky coordinating two families especially if both sides have large families.

For us, because my husband is Jewish, we visit his mom around the start of Hanukkah and then whichever day my mother and father pick around Christmas, we will go visit with them so luckily it's pretty simple for us.

    We will be hosting Christmas at our place. My parents will host Easter and my in-laws host Thanksgiving.

    We typically split Christmas Day between both parents. It’s important to both of us to spend Christmas with both our families so we make it work! Luckily our parents live about 1.5 hours away from each other so we’re able to make the trip. We know once we have kids this will probably become unlikely so we’re doing what we can now until then!!

    That's great that you guys were able to work it all out! That's exciting, hosting Christmas in your own space!

    Since my husband and I bought a house this year, we are hosting Christmas day dinner at our house! So my side of the family and my husband's mom side of the family!

    Christmas eve we will be spending it with my husband's mom side of the family and boxing day we will be spending it with my husband's dad side of the family.
