    I hope to

    Hi,
    is it possible to say:

    1) Next Christmas I hope to spend it together with my grandparents and all my relatives


    I have other ideas in my mind, but please let me know if sentence number 1 is possible

    What about sentence number 2?

    2) I hope I'll spend my next Christmas together wit my grandparents and all the other relatives.

    Thanks a lot
    Rip

    Both of your sentences are a mess.
    I hope to spend/ I hope that I will spend ... next Christmas with all my relatives. (,including my grandparents.)

    Re: I hope to

    I wouldn't say your sentences are a mess. They just need a little tweak (change).

    1) Next Christmas I hope to spend it together with my grandparents and all my relatives
    I hope to spend next Christmas with my grandparents and all my relatives.

    Smile Re: I hope to

    2) I hope I'll spend my next Christmas together wit my grandparents and all the other relatives.

    I would put:

    I hope to spend next Christmas with my grandparents and other relatives.

    The same as my other suggestion. It is the most natural and simple way to say the sentence (for me at least).
