Laurie asks:

“My husband’s parents always come over on Christmas eve. Now they also want to visit on Christmas day. How do I announce to my husband I want to stick to our traditional plans (which does not include them)?”

My Response:

It’s tough, especially when someone’s family means more to them than they do to you. Unfortunately, Christmas is also about family, so trying to exclude them on that one day is not easy.

I think you have to communicate that you want your special time together with your husband; a time where you have your traditions, quirks and moments, but that you also want to make him happy by spending time with his family.

Embrace them make it a great day.

Lindsay asks:

“I’m 25 and have never been kissed under the mistletoe. I’ve been told I’m intimidating. How do I set off the signal at holiday parties that I’m available and interested?”

My Response:

I have a 7 Step Guide for this. If you want to go through the entire guide – designed to get you that kiss on New Year’s Eve – it’s available here.

As a few snippets from the guide…

Firstly – smile – it’s the key to killing that intimidation. Secondly, the key to approachability is being able to approach. Go and approach the guy you want to talk to – saying something as risk-free as, ‘Isn’t it so great everyone’s so happy now?’

A nice way to close out the conversation would be to invite him Christmas shopping. “I would love for us to go shopping together, let’s hold each other accountable.”


To get all 7 Steps, head on over to for the full guide.
