Should This Woman Really Charge Her Family Members $21 Each For Christmas Dinner?

November 29, 2018

When you host Christmas dinner, even if everyone brings something, you're still going to wind up on the hook for buying a LOT of food.  So, is this move tacky or genius? A woman in England posted on a parents' website a few days ago about her mother-in-law CHARGING for Christmas dinner this year. She wants about $21 per person from everyone.

Oh and it's not because she feels like she should be paid for the cooking. She's charging because she's getting carry-out which is more expensive. So is that fair? Or is it ridiculous? The responses to the woman's post are split right down the middle, and both sides are very passionate.

But one person DID take a fairly level-headed middle ground approach that's worth sharing. Quote, "People who see it as charging family are horrified, people who see it as sharing costs don't see the issue."
