I love Christmas and love to celebrate Christmas with my little family ( my husband and three children) and also with the greater family I just do not like the stress and troubles that the rest of the family bring at Christmas. I just wish that everyone could forget about trying to be in charge and the top dog for this time of year and just enjoy spending time together. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make extended family Christmas more relaxed. It is a time to be together and happy not stressed and upset.
I find that no matter how organised and prepared you are with the food and gifts etc your can never be prepared for the outcome. I always try to be so tolerant although last year it was me who could not handle my brother in law being rude to my children ( as my children are the little ones in the family with much older cousins). I can put up with so much but not someone swaring at my children.
Suggestions are very welcome I would looooove a peaceful Christmas!!
