That's assuming the respect will be mutual. That could be an easy way to get kicked out of the house, disowned, or worse, have Christmas presents withheld. Definitely an option, though.

I've been in the same tricky situation, and sometimes it's best suck it up for an hour, zone out/meditate/practice mental long division and keep people happy around the holidays. If it's boring and uncomfortable and doesn't resonate with you, at least you can feel like you're making yourself mentally tough.
