My husband and I won't be able to make it to Christmas this year-the first time ever. He hasn't had a job in months, we live three+ hours away, it's just not in the cards. He is a super family kind of guy though.|
I had a thought-why not invite everyone up to our place for a Christmas dinner? Not on Christmas but close to. His family, my family-everyone. Originally I thought a week before Christmas but then maybe first weekend of December would be best, though we haven't worked out any details yet.
Is this a stupid idea? Is it selfish to not go to our family's Christmas but then invite everyone to our place, thus making them travel?
We have a one bedroom apartment-it's small. It will be excessively crowded. How would you feel about traveling three hours to be in a crowded room of family?
Is this just a ridiculous idea? I mean, we'd have to spend money on food and stuff, unless we went out to dinner-and gifts-which would be more money.
