Holiday Entertaining

This week we’re sharing our holiday entertaining traditions in the Vamplit Blog. It’s all about family when it comes to entertaining at our house. The biggie is a New Years brunch that we host. Lots and lots of food and festivities. And, we have a topic for New Years over in the Vamplit Blog later this month, so I’ll save all the details for then.

We don’t attend many holiday parties, just because there don’t seem to be as many as there used to be, especially of the workplace type. So far this year we’ve missed the first we were invited to attend due to my never-ending flu. No one wanted to host a neighborhood party/cookie exchange, and if I’m not better, we’ll miss my critique group’s party too. As you can tell, I’m a bit perturbed that I can’t seem to fight off this crud.

On a happy note, our Christmas entertaining is changing this year. Michael and I usually spend the evening alone, sharing really good steaks, lobster and crab legs with our spoiled beagles. This year both my sons and future daughter in-law will join us. YAY! I planned a more elaborate meal this year, still with the steak and seafood, and I expect the boardgames will come out as well.

What are your family entertaining traditions?

  1. Our big thing is ringing in the new year. Christmas is pretty great, but there’s something about New Years.

    I’m British and Scottish, and the Scots relly celebrate New Years. They would give out coins, which, honestly, I can’t remember why. (They, er Scots, also give change to newborns) I’ll have to look into the why of that too, I’m useless, lol!

    Family and friends get together and just enjoy each others company. Alcohol is usually included. But, when the count down begins, most of us are a blubbery mess. I know it sounds horrible, but it’s actually really great.

    Thank you for participating in this. It’s been a lot of fun. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday.

  2. We don’t do anything any more, besides having a nice meal and having more treats around the house. With no kids, no one wants to bother.

  3. We used to have a trio of shindigs. But no longer. We now worry about making ourselves happy around the holidays <3 We have learned over the years–its less stressful and usually more enjoyable <3
    Merry Christmas!!

  4. One tradition we have in my family is that we stay up on Christmas Eve and open presents then, we sleep in the next day until other family members start coming in. Happy Holidays to you and yours 🙂
