For those of you who are married or are older and in a committed relationship, how do you split holidays with yours and your SO’s families? This is my first year married and im curious how others do it.

alternate thanksgivings, and split up for christmas! our family's are 5 hrs away from each other, so we have to choose one or the other. some of my friends do dinner with one family and dessert with the other if they're close enough.

If we lived in the same town as both families we’d most likely do dinner with one and lunch with the other. Since that is not the case now (our families live 8 hours apart) we split up for Christmas because I’ve went to Christmas Eve at my grandmas every year of my life and it’s not a tradition I will ever break. For thanksgiving we alternate. One year we’ll do it early with my family (like a week or two early) and then spend the day of with his family and then the next year vice versa.

for thanksgiving, we went up to his parents house and ate a little and then came back to my parents house for our dinner. christmas we head up to his parents for the morning and go back to my parents later in the evening since my mom works late.

We’ll usually spend Thanksgiving with one family and Christmas with the other

Alternate thanksgivings and spend Christmas Eve with one family and Christmas with the other. Alternate those too
