What's the number?
Don't drink, don't go near it. Take no chances.
Who said there was drinking involved?
Around Christmas especially, there is always someone bringing something alcoholic to drink. Go figure
Do family gatherings count. If not, I think I will be able to avoid parities this year.
I went to the Central NY Bap Association pastors, and the Onondaga County Conservative Party.
I was going to go to the CNY Patriot League, but it was canceled due to a snow storm.
I have went to the NY Guard in the past, but that is in Albany and the travel time is too much to be back in time for Sunday AM
Also, my wife has a friend who has a home Christmas party, but Mrs. Salty is very busy two part time jobs and part time college, so we took that one off our list as well.
PS who will host the '08 Baptist Board Christmas party? :thumbs: I figure we could have about 10 thur out the country. I volunteer Padre to have the Northeast party.:1_grouphug:
Didn't go to DH work party, he decided against it.
Have been to an oyster roast, and hosted a Christmas ornament crafting party
for our niece and friends. My family will have a get together the Sunday evening b/f to open presents and eat. Christmas Day is at my MIL's, and my fam have agreed to go!
I may do a small 'primping for Christmas' party for niece and friends, doing their nails green and red, watching girly movies, ect....
I wish we had a big house so could host for both fams. That would be a blast, but our cats would prob have a fit!
Two this year, the wifes job will have one and we one of our members had one last night. I'm taking a good ribbing at the Church today for my dancing skills (or lack there of). :laugh:
We are having a Christmas lunch for school Wednesday. Does that count?
I can think of two that I know we're going to.
Tomorrow night is the one at the yacht club where we're members. It's a "working club" - where members are expected to work to help keep costs down (this is certainly not one of those "snooty" clubs). Tomorrow night will be a cocktail party to thank all those who work. I know there will be alcohol but DH and I will partake of our usual seltzer with lime. Oh - that reminds me! We got our bill this month and it was $100 more than it normally is! I checked out the billing and they have a bill for us for that much in alcohol! Yikes! Fortunately, they know we don't drink so it will be no problem to prove that we didn't drink wine, beer, and 6 Absolutes! LOL!
Then Wednesday is our staff Christmas party at church. I'll be pulling the girls out of school because this is for the whole family. We do an adult gift exchange and the kids get gifts from the senior pastor and his wife. It's a catered lunch and we have a WONDERFUL time! Oh - and no alcohol at that one but I'm going to see if we can't make our coffee punch which is to die for and should be as frowned upon as alcohol. LOL - it's sweetened coffee, ice cream, chocolate milk and whipped cream. Gazillion calories at least. LOL!
==For the first time in many years my answer is NONE. I failed to show up for my Sunday school Christmas party because I was not feeling good and no party at work. So, I am enjoying a party free Christmas while it lasts. Next year I will not be so lucky.
Ladies Ornament Swap party
Faculty and staff (school)
1st grade party
and the high school students party
THat doesnt count family stuff.
I got invited to the Cheerleaders christmas party (I declined) and my choirs wanted to have one as well (wish not granted). And my 8th grade homeroom is having a party at a students house and I got invited, but I will be out of town (aw shucks).
I LOVE Christmas parties--a chance to get-together with family and friends, co-workers, meet new people....share fellowship with church family, etc.
Not counting family-only gatherings, I'll attend four, and I'd go to more if I got the invitations! :laugh:
Oops I forgot. I will be attending one Christmas Party. The Chamber of Commerce Mixer I am helping with. No one gets drunk or acts up. Been hanging with them being on committees, attending luncheons and mixers since before I became a Christian. Many of the members are good friends of ours. I often forget there is alcohol at the functions. Take no chances otherwise
1 to 2 at most. Work related parties, both mine and the SU's.
I like Christmas parties too, if they don't include alcohol.
None for me. I haven't been invited or even heard of any planned.
