Mom-In-Law Starts Internet Debate After Charging Christmas Lunch Guests $21 a Plate

By Mustafa Gatollari

The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with friends, family, and other loved ones you don't really have a label for because it's 2018 and all. And depending on how generous of an individual you are, all of that holiday cheer could cause a pretty big dent in your wallet.

Personally it's not something I stress over — I just try to pick up extra gigs wherever I can or have a few nights without sleep so I can drive Lyft (thank God for modern technology) to try and soften the blow of dropping tons of greenbacks on the people I care about in my life.

But for others, it's not so simple, especially if you're the one who's expected to handle all of the festivities/food for everyone during the holidays.

The expense of being a host is a real thing and making home-cooked meals often costs more than ordering out.
