Did you dream of what your first married Christmas would look like? You’d pick out a real tree, and your strong handsome husband would cut it down.
Together you’d decorate it and put an angel on top. You couldn’t wait for your prince charming to taste your grandma’s sugar cookies and your aunt’s pecan pie.
Many December nights would be spent snuggled up by the fire sharing your Christmas memories. Sigh. . .
One big problem. . . your real-life husband much prefers an artificial tree with a star on top. And his family always celebrates their holidays at the exact same time yours does. And he doesn’t like nuts, anyway. Not to mention, for him, the holidays are about big gatherings, not little intimate moments. Ugh.
And that’s merely the small stuff—the tip of the iceberg. Broken families, rude uncles, and all the baggage that merging families brings are surely enough to sink the Titanic.
