I will be cooking as have a friend over for Christmas lunch -we will share the cooking and we will as usual, have far too much for two people, however, it is fun and I am looking forward to it.

I will visit my family on the morning before lunch time and will probably cook a lot the day before.

No, I never do the cooking, Christmas or otherwise! My husband is the chef in our family and he usually cooks up a storm for us and anyone we have staying. Many years ago I took my parents and brother our for Christmas Lunch at a top-rated hotel and it was a 12 course eating marathon..... delicious but oh my goodness we didn't need to eat anything more for several days afterwards!
if you feel about to respond to a provocation try the following...Complement on the d├ęcor, or food or her daughter that you obviously love. Compliment her for the way she has obviously brought her up...and mean it! if you are about to retort or explode then politely excuse yourself and go for a walk around the block. Do not say "I have indigestion I need to go for a walk"...SAYS ME LAUGHING!! Think positive before you go and you will come away smiling of roses as the saying goes. I will be sending a prayer up for you as I will not forget you this Christmas...I have been in the same situation!
Oh that is great advice thank you so much... :)

My plans for Christmas Day are not anywhere near finalised as yet!!! So I do not really know. My family is all a long distance from me.This is the main reason I am not sure.
I am having Xmas Dinner with a friend and she is the expert cook! so does the lions share....I will do something though

I live with a chef, I won't get to do much cooking coz he takes over lol. He's actually working on xmas day but he plans to put everything in the oven to slow cook for when he gets home. I'll make the salads and desserts if I'm lucky!
I am most blessed.

My lovely daughter-in-law, is a gem!
She cooks every single year, as there are more of them, that myself & my son.
So we jump in the car....and have a great time at my son's house.

It will be very interesting this year!
I had a few words with her mother 6 months ago.
We are totally different people....and well we just had 'polite'-words.

Anyway, it didn't really end too well....but, we are having Christmas at her house for the very first time this year.(my daughter-in-laws mothers).
So we both have been told to be nice, I for one have every intention of saying very little...and being as sweet as is ~

sweet as pie I'm sure you will be Jonaj!

I WILL I love my daughter-in-law too much to make the same mistake again?...lol

Jonaj, There's another reply to your answer to this question, at the bottom of these replies, from Tiny5, if you haven't seen it already.

I will be helping out.
I will be cooking on Christmas day in addition to a small wedding and family gathering after. I think I will be more tired than rested at the end of the holidays

I have never made a full Christmas dinner. I have always spent Christmas dinner with my parents
by AJ
No, but I imagine I will be helping either my mum or my mother-in-law cook lunch.

No. I get out of it every year. Last year I worked afternoon shift at the Nursing Home, this year, I've made my self available if required to work the morning shift. However, I didn't get out of cooking for the Cottage Christmas Party which will be held on 22 December. We are expecting to cook for about 35 residents and their family members.

Nope. My son's a Chef! Am totally spoilt!
We always have Christmas with family, but NOT at our house, so I never have to cook for Christmas. I take along some salads instead.
Thanks miro_ for that heads up I would not have seen the other reply :)

The last 3 years we have had Christmas with our youngest daughter & 1/2 of her lovely partners family, in Melbourne. They invite us to their beautiful holiday house in Yea, (as Finy already knows!) We'd rather have Christmas with them in Victoria, then my own family or in-laws in Sydney!

My daughter will be here from the 8th November from Greece and we will go to the Blue Mountains Christmas Eve and for a few days to be with my son, d-in-law and my 3 little grandsons.. We will share the cooking.
My daughter is here for 3 months ...I cant wait!
Tiny5, was that for a Christmas past, or is it for Christmas '17?
