When 33-year-old 'Christmas Conundrum' landed a good job and bought a new house, she never expected to be at the center of a family feud.

But as the big day approached, the excuses started pouring in, leaving her with the prospect of preparing the entire feast alone. Frustrated, she gave her family an ultimatum, sparking a family-wide outrage. Let's dive into this Christmas conundrum. 🎄🍽️😲

Caught in a whirlwind of family drama, 'Christmas Conundrum' now finds herself questioning her actions. After setting a fair condition for hosting the grand Christmas dinner, she found herself abandoned by her family, left to shoulder the burden alone.

This sparked a wave of fury among her family members, who accused her of ruining Christmas. As the accusations fly and the tension rises, she's left wondering if she's the real villain in this festive fiasco. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🎄🍽️😲

"NTA. It's always insane to me how the person (who is often a woman) who volunteers and preps their home is also usually the one who is saddled with all the big, most expensive, most time-consuming dishes. So many people just think they can show up and do nothing at a supposed family event. Screw all of that." 😲
