It has been customary for my husband and I to go to either of our Parents' houses for Thanksgiving. But this year, I really want to have thanksgiving at our house, just my husband and I. Is this permissible? I can just hear my mother saying, "Your father might not be here for next Thanksgiving, and you want that to be his last impression of you??" This is her typical response to things like this. My husband's parents are much more relaxed, but they always hope for us to join them on the holidays. For the record, I am NOT the kind of person who will happily defy my parents... never have been. Not sure what I'm asking here, but I just want to have a Thanksgiving with my Husband, in our house.
