I was more than happy to give the gift of acceptance and understanding to our kids.
We usually have Open House on Boxing Day with no pressure for anyone to be there and most years we have a house full.
Exactly what I do icanhandthemback. I remember only too well the emotional blackmail of having to drive hundreds of miles to spend Christmas with my parents, and the months of silent treatment we were given when we rebelled and stayed at home one year. I've vowed never to do that to my adult family and simply have open house on Boxing Day.
