Mom Asks Family to Bring Cash to Pay for Christmas Dinner

A girlfriend posted this question to a forum asking for advice.

My partner has just told me that his mother who he's having Christmas lunch with said she wants $21 per head from him! I'm going to my family's for lunch so invited him also but he has had it there all his life with his grandparents and siblings too. she said she doesn't want to do It all from scratch and wants to Get it all pre-done so it's more money, which I understand but he's gutted and feels like he wants to come to my family now. I can see it from both sides and it's hard work and can be expensive but not like she is financially destitute. this has never happened before and he has offered to bring the dessert etc but he said handing over cash just feels wrong. As he says it's about family not money but I wanted to see what other people's opinions are? Or if you do this. Thanks



Has this ever happened to you?

Do they leave a 20% tip as well?
