How do I convince my parents?
Half of our relatives live in Florida, so my dad has us go there every year for Christmas. I love my family very much, but we just had a family reunion a month ago. I don't really think we should waste money on plane tickets. And I hate airplanes. Also, I'd have to miss a couple of days of school and I'm terrible at catching up on homework, it dropped me down a full letter grade last year. Apparently that wasn't enough reasons. How do I convince them to let us stay here for Christmas?
