To Invite or Not to Invite: A Christmas Conundrum 🎄🤷‍♂️

Our protagonist is faced with a classic holiday dilemma, but with a twist. His estranged sister, with whom he's shared a history of resentment and hostility, has invited herself and her son to his Christmas gathering. This isn't just any Christmas gathering - it's an intimate tradition with his girlfriend's family, a tradition he's recently become a part of. Now, he's left to ponder: Should he let his sister in, potentially disrupting the harmony, or should he stand his ground and risk the fallout? Let's see what the world wide web has to say about this festive fiasco... 🎄🌍💭
