Don't feel guilty about not wanting to join in. It's very natural when you've just lost people you love.

Just do what you feel comfortable with. I think the idea of snuggling on the sofa with Dd sounds a lovely

Could you see if you can buy a panto on DVD for the afternoon and snuggle with DS and eat pop corn etc? The sheer silliness of the panto might help make you smile a little.

We're staying at home on christmas day - DH is working 2-10pm so will at least be around for present opening.

Poor you - September is very recent, not surprising you want to avoid Christmas. Are your DH's family expecting you to join them on 25th, or will you be at home with your DS while DH at work? How does your DH feel about it - is he sympathetic about your feelings, would he be OK with a low-key Christmas? What about your DS? Hope whatever happens is OK for all of you.

My mum passed away in September, my dad just over 2 years ago, dh has to work Christmas Day. I can't get excited about Christmas at all. I'm sick of dh's large family moaning that I haven't been to the numerous Christmas family things they do every year (I don't enjoy them at the best if times). I just want to locked myself away until the new year and start 2013. If it wasn't for ds I probably would be having a good go at hibernating.
