🎄 Family Feud Over Christmas Party Invites 🎉

So, here's the situation: Mia's mom let her decide who to invite to her own Christmas party, and Mia chose not to invite her step-cousin Georgia. Georgia's mom is furious, accusing Mia's mom of teaching her daughter to be a bully and even threatening to skip family Christmas. Mia's mom stands her ground, refusing to let her daughter's party be ruined just to appease her sister-in-law. But with family Christmas potentially in jeopardy, is she doing the right thing? 😬🎄 Let's see what the internet thinks of this holiday drama...
