This is the first year I won't be celebrating Christmas with my family. We live 10 hours away, but have always traveled there for the holidays.

My DHs family lives very close, but they do not celebrate like my family at all. In my family, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are filled with family, food, drinks, and fun. DHs family doesn't do anything tonight and it is a small, much quieter gathering on Christmas Day.

I'm trying my best to be an adult and make the best of it, but I'm really struggling. I just miss what I've always known and my family so much. Any tips or suggestions??
