Splitting Holidays Between Families

Group Therapy: Worried About an Unhappy Holidays

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm feeling a lot of guilt about the holidays right now. I'm going to be dividing up this year's holidays between my family and the boyfriend's family. (Thanksgiving will be spent with the bf's mother; Christmas will be with my family; and NYE with the bf's father.) While I know I can only insist that my two sisters make an effort to spend it with my parents (who are divorced), I can't make them. It is just a bummer that because I'm not here, neither one of my sisters is going to make an effort to organize a nice dinner. Let's not forget to mention that Christmas is going to stress me out because my mom volunteered my sisters and I to cook for our family including extended family . . . I need some coping skills! Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm about to go pick up a case of white wine and just go with the flow.
