GMD - Starting Our Own Holiday Traditions

Yi!

Every tradition has to start somewhere...but where does it end? Alex and Victoria have a new house and a new baby and Victoria wants to start a new tradition and host Thanksgiving dinner with the parents at her house this year. In Alex’s family, it has been a tradition for the family to gather at his aunt's house every year...and if they don't go his family will be devastated.

Slacker says there are 364 other days in the year, why can’t she host a big gathering on any of those other days? Steve is teetering on both sides, but thinks that their baby is only 4 months old and is not going to know the difference.  They both agree that this is Aunt Claire’s thing and possibly what she lives for so maybe Victoria shouldn’t take it away from her.

Whose side are you on?

I’m all for traditions but clearly they always start somewhere.  A family is constantly growing and changing and that’s how new traditions come about.  I think that Victoria should have Thanksgiving at their new house, at least just for this year, and see how it goes.  I’m going to a completely new house this year and I’m stoked about it!

Toodles!

My name is Austin, and I am 17. I cook EVERY Thanks Giving. I believe I would be very sad if someone else cooked for Thanks Giving. My brother is the same way, he just moved and wants to host Thanks Giving at his house. I am fine with it, but part of thestipulation was that I get to come over and help cook.

Tradition/Thanksgiving
I have been married 23 years and this was me back in my "rightious 20s". I wanted my husband to side with me instead of his family and he did. It was all about "growing up" and starting "our" family. Relationships were strained and then severed. I wish I could go back. With my mom gone, by husband's mom gone (died) it would be nice to have family. Pick another holiday. Leave this one alone. The lesson you want to teach that 4 month old is how to be gracious, kind, and supportive. My kids are now entering adulthood and I pray their respective spouses allow for my traditions, my sisters (Aunt Claires), and respect for who we are in the family and no threat to them.
