With holiday season in full swing, the question of what makes a good party was posed to some celebrities. Some of their answers were predictable (the mix of guests) while others were slightly more eccentric (topless vacuum girls).
Another writer is unhappy that her friends seem to squeeze “90 percent of the year’s parties into two godforsaken weekends” during the holidays. She wants fewer lame holiday parties and more parties spaced out during the rest of the year.
… Is it really so hard? Is it rocket science, buying a case of beer and a bag of pita chips? Don’t bother vacuuming. Throw a real party, in January, or June, or October. You know you want to. You love parties. You miss them. You want to throw a rager so bad it hurts. And you know just the thankless curmudgeon to invite.
Are you attending many parties this holiday season? Are you hosting a party? Or are you spending the holidays cocooning at home or pursuing other activities?
What makes a good party? What are some of the best and worst parties you’ve attended or hosted?
We typically host large family dinners during the holidays, and the topic of seating arrangements seems to elicit strong opinions among some people. At dinner parties, do you prefer to be seated next to your Significant Other or do you prefer to sit next to other guests? (This assumes that tending to young children is not part of the equation.)
No post tomorrow on Christmas Day, but we can comment on how our holiday weekend is coming along. Which gifts were winners, and which were losers?
