10th Quotes of Christmas

Been to any good Christmas parties this year? Any memorable moments? I like to dress up fancy for most parties. I love all the themed parties, like decorate the tree/bring an ornament, cookie decorating, cookie exchange, and my favorite - the white elephant. We went to one this year and one gift was a live fish in a bowl! Hilarious! And people stole it! Some friends posted pictures of an ugly Christmas sweater party! Anyone been to an office party lately? Many places did away with those to cut back on expense. Bummer! I love gatherings =) And Christmas parties are particularly nice!

"Parties are delicious concoctions of flavorful personalities."

We went to our friend holiday party. Lots of cookies, cake and brisket was eaten. Toddlers danced. Everyone had fun. I'd love to go to an ugly sweater party, or a re-gift party. (A party where you wrap up horrible gifts you've been been and everyone randomly picks one!)

I haven't been to a Christmas party in a few years now, but my favourite was always one where you could dress up.

An ugly sweater party sounds like it could be a real hoot! :-)

Went to my ladies work shop party and the gift I ended up with, after playing a game, was a book called, A Senior Moment is Just a Wrinkle in Time. I said, who's the wise guy?

The office Christmas party was at my boss's house. Judging from the alcohol lining the counters, it went on into the wee hours of the night.

I miss the office parties that I used to go to. Always good for a few laughs. Now my Christmas parties are very low-key, just family and friends.

Merry Christmas, Tara!
