I love holidays. Several times a year friends and families gather, get caught up on each others lives, play games, eat ourselves into a stupor and then take naps together, sprawled all over the house like a new batch of kindergarteners.

DEAR ABBY: My mother is married to a pervert I'll call "Harry." He has destroyed our family. Harry has made sexual comments to my sister and me about our bodies until we finally moved out of our mother's home when we reached 18. His behavior stopped for a long time, until my daughter, "Allie," began to develop. After she turned 11, the sexual comments started again. Harry also began calling her names, and saying that if she were his daughter he would slap her mouth. It has reached the point that we no longer visit Mother nor do we attend family functions.
