Every Christmas Eve- I go to my family’s house, stay there overnight and watch Christmas movies and have some drinks and snacks.
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 3 years now and this year we’ve decided to keep Christmas Eve and morning to ourselves- and head over there in the afternoon. It was a tough decision to make but I’m looking forward to spending some alone time with my boyfriend on Christmas.
I told my parents last night and they sounded so upset. It sounded like my Mom was crying. I feel so bad now I’m wondering if I should ask my boyfriend to switch plans. I feel so guilty and now my gut isn’t feeling right and I feel like now I’m going to be upset all Christmas Eve knowing my parents are upset with me.
What should I do?
