In the divorce decree, it states holidays alternate each year. So, if P1 has Thanksgiving this year, P2 will have it next year. Similarly, P2 will have Christmas this year and P1 will have it next year.

P2 has a large, involved family who gets together for all holidays. P1 has little family with whom they associate, and they most certainly do not spend holidays together.

P2 feels that since they have large family celebrations, whereas P1 will likely spend holidays just them and the kids, that P2 should have the kids for all holidays.

Thoughts?

O.O have they completely lost it? P1 STILL would enjoy having the kids for holidays... regarless of if it is a BIG function, or a small more personal family thing... it is COMPLETELY insensitive bitchy thing to think otherwise.

Accusations that I'm trying to take parenting time from my ex.

did i say that in my post? and this is not about parenting time, but about holidays... Holidays are VERY important, that is why they broke those down into sections and make SURE That both parents are included in them, and to think OTHERWISE is extremely insensitive and whoEVER this post is about that one parent is a MAJOR BITCH

I read your original post as "have you lost it". Just went back and saw it says "have they lost it". Not sure if you edited, or if I misread. If it was me, I apologize.

well i don't knonw who this post is about, as you give no information there... you just leave it as P1 and P2, so i am just saying the parent who is expecting the other parent to forfeit all holidays is not only a complete lunatic, but a complete BITCH too, well if it the father hewould be a complete ASS in that regard
