So Long, Holiday Cheer

Shortly into our meeting, I learned that the downpayment for the house was coming from his parents, and her parents were paying the closing costs.  Both were also buying new appliances and chipping in to have the home repainted.

 

As the air outside was starting to feel crisp the day the contracts were signed, I chirped in with a bright, “How nice! I bet Thanksgiving will be at your house this year!”

 

His shoulders stiffened and she reached across to take his hand. “That’s just the start,” she said. “We been told that, based on their investments, both our families expect us to host all holiday get-togethers.”

 

Before I could make a comment, he said, “Christmas is going to suck from now on.”
