Sim­ple: one year at yours; next year at theirs. That way you share the Christ­mas spirit around and both sides of the fam­ily tree are looked af­ter. Or else just in­vite your par­ents and get ev­ery­one to­gether? Un­less they hate each other? In which case, even bet­ter. Noth­ing like a bit of in­ter-fam­ily con­flict to help the turkey go down. Cheers.
