Do you still visit them at Christmas?
Why or why not?

I don't have the best relationship with mine, but I still suck it up and go for DH and our kid's sake.

I don't have to because they don't celebrate but I would for my SO.

No I do not still visit them on Christmas. My SO is more than welcome to go over to his mothers house if he would like, but I won't go over their and neither will my children.
I don't believe in playing the game of pretending to enjoy their company, especially when they don't enjoy mine either. Seems stupid.

Hell no, I don't care to see my mother in law, she's constantly drunk & chain smoking. and my children shouldn't be around that.

We're not going this year because I don't feel comfortable driving that far. But if we were, I don't think it's fair to travel to see my family who live in the same city as my in-laws and not see them.

I suck it up for my SO.
BUT I refuse to let my daughter around her when she's wasted being a psycho b***h so I don't know how much longer I'll be going over there.

we will visit my husband's uncle but not his mom. his mom turned into a major b***h to me and called leaving a bunch of threatening voicemails on my phone. so i refuse to go there and told him that if he goes there that it is hugely disrespectful to me.

I used to. But f**k no now. I am tired of sucking it up and being treated like shit. And my kids won't be going either. I refuse to put them in an unhealthy situation. EVERY time they go out there they come homing running a high fever from all of the germs and smoke in the house.

I'm letting him go but we decided it was best me and our daughter didn't join. His mom undermines me on a regular basis and talks shit about me to him and thinks he doesn't tell me and there's so much faking I can do before I'm pissed off lol trust me, I feel your pain :( wish it was easier.

Me too. Mine was here with me, alone earlier to bring back DD's car seat.
