Where should we go for the holidays?

My husband and I are proud new parents of a beautiful baby boy. We are fascinated by his development each day and were excited to spend our first Christmas with him. We traditionally spend Christmas Eve at my family's house. I have younger siblings who love Christmas also. My husband's brother lives near us and they usually go to his wife's family's house for dinner. This year his brother had said he maybe wanted to host Christmas Eve at his house and invite us and my parents and siblings, along with his wife's parents. I am hesistant to do this idea because I know my parent's would not be too fond of this idea and things have not been too stable as far as my parent's relationship goes that a huge "family" dinner might just end badly. I'm worried because I really wanted to have a wonderful traditional first Christmas with my boys. My husband doesn't mind going to my parents house for Christmas because he is aware of the situation and understands fully. I don't want to spend Christmas without my family. I would definitely not want to give this up and spend it with my brother in laws wife's parents I truthfully don't know what to do and this whole ordeal has been eating away at me for days. Any advice. Should I tell my mom about this and see what she says? I'm being ripped apart :(

I would just tell your mom about the offer and see how it goes. I totally understand your feelings on the situation. My inlaws get Christmas Eve my family's is Christmas day. One yr they wanted to switch.....I felt the same as you do. It's nice that your bil has invited your whole family though.
