Classy 97 Family Feud: Tinsel Trouble This Christmas

From December 2, 2020

Dear Liza,
I hate tinsel! I sound really Grinchy when I say that, but it’s true. I don’t get it. It just looks like a mess hanging on my beautiful tree. My husband’s family is mad for it! They all have it on their trees. We’ve been married for a couple years and it has just come out that his family thinks I’m “snooty” and “controlling” because I won’t let him have tinsel on his Christmas tree. I had no idea they felt this way. I asked him if it was really important to him and he just sort of gave me the Christmas grunt. So now I’m wondering if I should defile my perfect tree with tinsel, just to make my in-laws happy. I don’t want to be the controlling, snooty woman that ruins Christmas for their precious brother/son.
