The OP said she and her stepbrother don't get along well:
She explained why she didn't like him:
But her parents invited him over for Christmas Eve:
So, the OP plans to lock herself in a room during the Christmas party:
However, her brother tells her she is overly dramatic:
A Redditor said the OP was not wrong for wanting to protect herself
"OP is 23 and acting 13"
The OP has the right to choose who she spends her time with
"The holidays are meant to be enjoyed"
The OP should give her brother a second chance, as this incident was six years ago
"It’s time to let it go"
"You are mad at your parents for not punishing him as much as you wanted"
Even though many Redditors told the OP that she might be in the wrong for holding the grudge from their childhood, they still told her she has the right to choose who she spends her time with, especially Christmas. As for her stepbrother, they had disagreements a long time ago, and maybe he grew up to be a better person, so she should give him a second chance.
