A Modern Work Frolic – The Christmas Card Party

A few years back, I noticed that every ladies gathering I attended involved a sales pitch, a gift purchase, or an expensive meal. Although I loved visiting with my female friends, I wanted to find a better way to get together, and the Christmas Card Party was born.

Here’s how it works: Before the holiday rush begins, ladies gather to address their Christmas cards and share a potluck meal. (Think Amish work frolic. We get a task accomplished and enjoy fellowship with friends at the same time.) Each person brings her holiday cards, pens, address list, and a dish to share. As hostess, I like to make a pot of soup and a batch of mulled apple cider. Then, we turn on some Christmas music and enjoy an evening of work and fun. By the end of the night, we’ve shared in each other’s lives and gotten a big holiday task completed.

To help add a festive touch to your gathering, here are a few links for great holiday drinks:

So, how do you combine work and play? Share your favorite ideas for accomplishing holiday to do’s in fun ways.
