And although it’s the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also one of the most stressful.

It’s making sure that you have everything prepared and ready for that highly anticipated Christmas dinner, of course!

It’s not just the Christmas dinner that can be tricky.

But you must also make sure you have all the trimmings and extras… especially if you’re hosting for many!

Yep, hosting at Christmas isn’t all rainbows and fairies.

And, unless you’re a Michelin star chef, it’s always going to be unbelievably stressful and expensive preparing the perfect festive feast.

Which is where our story begins…

“My husband has a large family. And on every Christmas, they’d gather at his father’s house. My father-in-law passed away a year ago and This year my husband decided as the man of the family to host Christmas at our house.

“Unbeknownst to me, he sent out invitations for a 5 day Christmas celebration to his entire family which are about 26 members in total,” a Redditor shared.

“I found out about by accident and I was too shocked to react.”

But her husband was unapologetic and told her to get used to this level of Christmas hosting every single year.

The wife had a rather understandable reaction.

“I freaked out and said no this is wrong and he should’ve talked to me first before sending out any invitations to his family, knowing I have other commitments like work and taking care of the house and our son.”

This led to a huge blowout.

“I ended up sending a mass text to everyone who received an invitation explaining that we will not be hosting Christmas this year.

“He found out and went off on me calling my behavior outrageously appalling and saying that I broke his word to his family and made him look small and with no authority. “

“I, in a very strict tone replied, that I didn’t sign up to host a celebration and accommodate 26 people while pregnant, taking care of a toddler and working.”

Most people spoke out in support of the OP.

“OP, tell him if he wants to host Christmas celebrations, he’s got the time and spoons to do it. Or, since he didn’t bother to ask you first and just told you to do it, you could go spend Christmas with your family, right? You don’t need to ask, just tell him you’re taking the baby with you and going to stay with your family. NTA and I hate your husband, OP,” one ranted.

“NTA!! You are absolutely right, you married a man who seems to have been born in the wrong decade (century??) to be so sexist.
I almost want to advise you to tell your husband that yes, in fact, he can organise the event. But you won’t be there. And neither will your son,” another added.

What do you make of this fierce debate?
