We got invited to his aunt's house for a christmas dinner and we both don't want to go because they didn't treat me very well on thanksgiving. They were extremely rude and ignored me most of the night. What's a good way to get out of it so we can be alone on Christmas? We're afraid if we tell his mom that we just want to be alone she'll start crying and give us the waterworks and guilt us into go. But I don't think I can be put in an awkward situation again because this time I might not bite my tongue.
