Kosher food AND Pork at the same Christmas table


I’m a messianic Jew – a Jewish person who is also Christian by faith and I celebrate Christmas with my husband’s family.

My aunt and uncle are the only family members I have in Denmark and I would like to invite them for Christmas. The problem is that while I’m less observant and quite relaxed about kosher food (avoid pork but don’t mind its presence in my home) my aunt is strict and she only buys kosher meat. I’m afraid she won’t feel comfortable eating with us since there will be pork served.

I tried asking the family to not serve pork for Christmas but they say it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without it.

How can I solve it?
