I (31M) have been together with my gf (25F) for 2 years now. We both live in London UK together but I am originally from Czech Republic.
I will visit my family in my home country next Christmas. My gf also wants to come. Last night we were looking for train tickets for her (I already booked my flight tickets separately, she is afraid of flying).
While looking for dates she told me she would like to arrive a few days before the actual Christmas, so she can relax and sleep a lot after the long train ride to prepare for the busy Christmas days.
This really annoyed me. I told her I don't want this holiday to be all about her. I just want to have a good time with my family. She doesn't need to tell me how many days she needs to prepare and sleep and that she will only have energy for 3 out of 7 days. I wish she would keep me out of that.
