And my husband has no problem with how I like to spend the holidays.

Just don't let petty crap come between you and your parents. I lost my Dad a year and a half ago, and I'm so glad that I spent so much time with him--WAY more than any of my sh***y siblings.
You saying "holidays aren't really a big deal to me" is ABSURD.

Your above description is one of the biggest descriptions of caring deeply about holidays and holidays being a big deal to you that exists in the world!

You seem very out of touch in your thinking about yourself and lacking self-knowledge when you do all of the above and express all of the above and then say "holidays aren't really a big deal to me".

WOW. What is the reason for your rudeness?? Are you one of those people who thinks they're a psychologist?

I don't "care deeply" about holidays. As an adult, I've always spent holidays with my parents because the holidays were special TO THEM. And my a-hole siblings are never around, so I'm the only one that cares enough to spend time with them (now, just my mom).

You don't know anything about me, so don't try to tell me that I "lack self-knowledge" and I'm "very out of touch" in my thinking. You've made yourself sound like a lunatic.
