Family feud time!

Christmas is such a wonderful time for togetherness.

It might be the one time a year you get to catch up with certain people, relax and enjoy the season.

At the centre of it all – Christmas dinner – where the whole family gathers together to eat a delicious meal, chat, pull Christmas crackers and wear paper hats.

One woman’s already having a bit of a hard time getting into the spirit of things after her brother and sister-in-law revealed they were going to charge their dinner guests for the big day.

Posting on Mumsnet, the poster says:

“I’ve never charged them before but apparently because they’ve got a lot of people going this year they have decided to charge.”

“Then in the next breath saying how many bottles of champagne they are planning to buy but will be splitting the cost evenly between us all.”

As you might imagine, she’s had support from pretty much everyone’s who’s seen the original post.

“I’d be invoicing them for all the years you paid for them and then say ‘or we can just call it even?” one said.

“I think as a host you could ask people to bring something (a dish, a bottle or a dessert to share) to help spread the load a bit.
Charging seems wrong.”

How would you react?
