Hi all! This is the first year I've decided to spend Christmas without visiting my mom or dads side for the holidays. For context, last year when I went to my moms she refused to help me prepare the lunch and left it all to me, invited friends over which I've never met and ended up overstaying their welcome for days after. I'm not speaking to my dad as of this year, he's put me and my sister through enough emotional trauma growing up and doesn't make an effort to have a relationship with me. Most of my girlfriends live in another state and have their own plans with partners.
Going away isn't an option as most places aren't pet friendly and $600 a night.
Has anyone decided to say fuck it and spend Christmas in peace/alone? What did you do?
