Fed-up host

Dear Queenie,

A few years ago my husband invited a co-worker and his family to our home for a holiday celebration because they had just moved here and didn’t have any family here or know very many people beyond the ones they worked with.

Since then they have settled in and made friends with other people we do not know and my husband was never very close with them, but they still assume they are invited to our place for holidays.

Queenie, how do we let them know they are not welcome all the time, especially when it’s a family occasion?—Fed-up host

Dear Host,

Your husband should let his co-worker know – gently, politely, and in plenty of time for them to make other arrangements – that you are holding smaller festivities these days and these occasions are for family only, no other guests.
