Lou Ann (you probably remember her as the gal with the lampshade on her head at my virtual cocktail party) and I have put our heads together to create some other fun activities to make this party rock—so choose one or two (or as many as you want) and be prepared to comment on them or provide a pic on party night:
1. Provide a photo of an ugly Christmas sweater or if you are up to the challenge– provide a photo of a beautiful Christmas sweater.

2. Show us a photo (or stick drawing) of your favourite author or character in a book.
3. Don be shy—show us a photo of you dressed up as your favourite author or character.
4. Tell us  the worst line you have ever read from an annual Christmas newsletter.
5. Describe your best or worst Christmas memory (depending on your mood)
6. Tell us the title of your favourite Christmas-themed book.

7.  Tell us about a Christmas tradition you want eradicated from this flat earth.

8. Create your own video or stand up or whatever your imagination conjures up. There will be kids at the party, so choose accordingly.
There you have it—choices galore.
Lou Ann will be serving some shrimp cocktail in champagne glasses with cocktail sauce and champagne cocktails to toast the night with. I am making my famous deviled eggs and coming dressed as Dr. Seuss. Since it is a Christmas party, perhaps I’ll come as the Grinch.
So be there or be square!

English: A shrimp cocktail.
