The upcoming holiday season will be the first since my divorce. My kids have asked repeatedly what our plans are for Thanksgiving and Christmas, however my ex-husband and I haven't yet taken the time to figure it out. (Plus we're probably trying to avoid the inevitable as long as we can.) Since he lives less than a mile away, I'm guessing that one option would be for the kids to spend part of Thanksgiving at my house and then the other part at his house, for two dinners. An aunt of mine who has been married three times advised me to split the holidays up. For example, I'll have them for Thanksgiving and he'll have them for Christmas. That way, it leaves flexibility if we ever want to travel for a holiday.
I have no idea which way is best. Does anyone have any advice on how to do the holidays, and for making it as stress-free for the kids as possible?
