I think you should tell your mum in a gentle manner before the holiday. Assure her your daughter is very happy and that she'll be fine. If you say nothing and she finds out by seeing him, it would stress her out even more and could cause an awkward scene.

I realize that interracial marriage has been, and still is in some areas, considered taboo.

My parents were racists. Strange to think about now because their first grandchild was biracial, but they were very racist.

Referring to him as just a friend is an option I've considered, but despite her many ailments, grandma is still very quick, and I don't think she would buy that one.

I wouldn't make mention of his race.

I would sit Granny down and let her know that Darling Granddaughter is bringing her long term boyfriend home for the holidays.

Do you feel that your dd will be disowned by your mother if he comes as her boyfriend?
