I don't mind Christmas Parties, really I don't. There are a variety of organizations that have Christmas parties. The group could be family, friends, work, or religious. In general, I don't have any beef with any of the parties that are listed. My expectations from a party are as follows (not listed in any specific order): friends, food and fun. Depending on the circumstances of the Christmas party, it could be appropriate to be reminded of the real reason/purpose of Christmas. What would be INappropriate would be most anything lame. Let me talk about my most recent party experience, which happened to be a church/religious function.

Cecilia is growing some new teeth! She already has 4 teeth all the way out. They're the top and bottom middle two. She's more than willing to try them out on anything. The newbies joining the party are the two just off of the middle two on the top. So, if I didn't explain that very well, then she'd have the middle 4 up top. On had already broken skin, and the other is right there.

Let's just say that you're tasked with gathering a male and female of every species in the world. Put them all onto a huge boat type device. Float around for a hundred and fifty days while the rest of the earth's population gets wiped out. You and seven other people are supposed to clean up after these animals, and make sure they have enough food for the whole time. Maybe it's just me, but there had to be some rules when this all went down. I would imagine that number one was "no mating".

Currently on TV there are ads running by
Infiniti Lexus where people are debating over what they should get a loved one for Christmas. Somebody is somewhere, looking at a variety of something (like a dude in a jewelry shop looking at the obvious). In some fairy-tale land with which I don't associate myself, random over-sized bows are placed conveniently on something which happens to give the person some sort of epiphany to what they should buy. Unfamiliar as I am with any place that actually has gift bows the size of cars, these commercials are totally stupid.

I'm not really keen to Christmas Cards. They're nice to get from others. I enjoy looking at their pictures. I generally struggle to get through the letters, since they're just too long. I'm glad that little Billy is in whatever grade, and that he's doing whatever extra curricular activities. But let's be honest - if I didn't already know these things, then they're probably not that important to me right now. You say that you have some new big news that so-and-so is going to wherever, and will be gone for however long? Okay, that might be big news. But, like I stated before, if I don't already know, then it probably isn't that important. Send me a picture, say something nice and generic (really, I'm serious on that one), and I'll have a good holiday as well. Off I go to have some shortbread.
