Would you say 'the invitation of your parents' or the invitation from your parents' when they invite you?
Also, is it 'the newspaper of 21 December' or 'the newspaper from 21 December'?

I always get confused...

"From" for the first, either for the second.

As Soothing Dave says, except for this form: We are going to dinner at the invitation of your parents.
