Family traditions can be a beautiful way to bring generations together, but what happens when it causes tension? One woman is struggling with her in-laws' family tradition of creating a picture calendar for their grandma every Christmas. The issue? Her sister-in-law seems to dominate the photos, leaving her feeling left out. Last year, things came to a head when her sister-in-law changed a photo on the page they designed together. This year, she wants to exclude her and her son from the tradition altogether. But when she expresses her dismay, her husband takes her side and refuses to participate. What should she do? Will she be the a**hole if she refuses to be part of the tradition? Read on to find out.

In-laws' family tradition sparks tension and exclusion 😡
A picture calendar tradition has become a point of contention between a woman and her sister-in-law. The woman feels that the sister-in-law is given preferential treatment by the family and is being excluded from the family tradition. The sister-in-law has taken over the tradition by including herself in the majority of the photos, and when the woman tries to stand up for herself, it causes tension. This year, the sister-in-law has taken control of the calendar and has excluded the woman and her son from most of it. The woman feels hurt and upset and is considering refusing to participate. However, after posting her story online, her husband became aware of the situation and is now standing up for her. The woman is torn between her love for the family tradition and her desire to be included. The situation has become a family affair and has caused tension between the couple and the in-laws. Will the family be able to come to a resolution and include everyone in the tradition? Or will exclusion and tension continue to be the norm?
