    • I don’t host any partys but I go over my Mom’s on Thanksgiving and she has this game she plays where the prizes she gives away are her Thanksgiving decorations from last year,estatic and they are nice decorations. She likes to change up her decor every year. We all have fun.

      On Christmas Eve we go over to my Aunt’s house and every year we sit around the table and play a new board game or If someone brings over a movie or a game they want to play, we do that. It’s alot of funestatic

    • When I was in my home and I hosted the winter holidays most times hubby and I would have the basement setup for the men to watch their sports and have their boy time, while the woman and children were in other parts of the house doing things like games, watching movies, or chatting.

      Currently being in an apartment I’m limited to what I can do so my groups are smaller close family only, but we still have fun palying games, and enjoy great family old time memories and good food lol.happy

    • I have my husband’s side of the family each year for Thanksgiving.  WE love it but we do not play games.  In fact I don’t know anyone on my side of the family or my husband’s who play games at Thanksgiving or Christmas.  

      For Thanksgiving the fam usually sits around and watches me finish up the last minute dishes...while the turkey is pulled out of the fryer.  We all fix our plates...and we all wait for my nephew who has an awesome voice...to say the blessing.  He always says a really nice blessing but with a bit of humor as well.  Still being grateful.

      We eat ourselves into a coma......then everyone goes home and takes a long nap.  Then they all come back over about 7pm for leftovers....and that is it.  

      Christmas Eve we go to my sister in law’s and grill out steaks...bake potatoes..and salad.  We just laugh, cut up...and have a good time.  

      Christmas Day...we go to my mother in laws...exchange a few gifts...have breakfast...then go home...and we all do whatever...watch movies....play with new toys....nap.....

    • I only hosted Thanksgiving twice and both times I gathered all the names, put them in a bag and each person had to pull a name and then say something why you are thankful for that person in your life or just express your love for that person.  Christmas Day we eat ourselves crazy, then a family friendly movie then the men takes over and watch football.  The ladies tend to gather in the kitchen and chat, chat, chat and crack jokes.  In the evening time, if a family member was not able to make the gathering because they were sick or had to work, we make package and take it to them, stay about an hour then get back home.

    • Thanks MaryClark, two cousins work at a hotel and are single parents and so that extra money goes a long way for them.  Sometimes they get to come around in the evening but half the time they are to tired.  Their kids come but to see an adult and interact with them after their day do feel good.
