Where do you spend the holidays?

  • Copy by: Julie Yarusinsky

Growing up, the holidays are a time to spend with family and close friends, regardless of choice. But what happens when you’ve grown up, developed a relationship, and share hometowns with your boyfriend or girlfriend that are farther than 45 minutes apart? Knowing where to spend the holidays and who to spend them with can be a tough, uncomfortable subject that can hurt those in the relationship as well as those outside: like your mom!

We’d love to know, is it more important to stay together as a couple and spend the holidays with each other, or is it better to separate and celebrate with your own family? Do you reserve certain holidays to visit your family, and then plan to spend other holidays with your partner’s? Those who have dealt with this dilemma please share!
