  •  You are so fortunate, our son is not into holidays (3+ / 0-)

    or visiting family and he is getting close to his mid 3os so it is no longer a stage. He just wants to be free of all commitments except his job. He just prefers to be with his coworkers socially and has decided against family events.   He just likes a lot of of space and no commitments and no family until he has a family of his own, then that that might change.  

    So you are very fortunate, indeed.  Our son used to bring girlfriends here and spend holidays with us when he was in his 20s and those are great memories.

    •  Let's hope that one day he will realize that (0+ / 0-)

      (1) this is the only life we will ever have, and (2)  there is nothing more important than one's family.  To know that there is someone in this world that shares your blood, your memories, your ancestry--that is a supreme gift.

      I love my nuclear family and my extended family, even the Republicans!  They're still my own blood kin and that is very important to me.
