Here is the OP's dilemma:

The OP explained his girlfriend was supposed to spend Christmas at his home:
But his sister also has plans for Christmas:
OP's sister doesn't want his girlfriend to be present during her planned dinner:
OP believes his girlfriend's exclusion is unnecessary:
Therefore, he asks for advice:
A Redditor said their parents should decide as it's their house
The OP explained:
He should tell his sister that he has already committed to having his girlfriend stay with him during that period
OP's sister is nervous about the dinner and wants to feel in control
"Your sister does not get to dictate who and who isn’t invited to a dinner your parents are hosting."
A Reddit user was curious:
"You aren't just standing up for your girlfriend, you are standing up for yourself"
Redditors told the OP that his sister doesn't get to decide who will attend the dinner since it's their parent's house, so parents should decide. Some Redditors also expressed their concerns that the OP's relationship might be too short for such kind of events, but more of them said that the length of the relationship does not determine its quality and feelings.
Therefore, the OP was not in the wrong for standing firm in their previous agreement, but Redditors said he also needed to talk with his parents regarding the issue.
