Holidays are about friends, family and fun… but they’re also full of stress for the person responsible for the party. If that’s you, don’t fret - we’re here to help with our favorite holiday tips and recipes. (Now get back to the party!)
Feeling a little overwhelmed by your holiday schedule? Enter Friendsgiving, a time to gather with friends in a casual setting to decompress and swap stories from office parties and family get-togethers gone awry. Friendsgiving is a relatively new tradition, but it is already sacred to its participants.
So you told your family you wanted to do brunch instead of dinner this year. They pursed their lips skeptically but agreed since it’s at your house this year, and now it’s on you to make holiday brunch a thing.
You and your coworkers deserve a celebration at the end of the year, but office parties can be awkward nightmares filled with painful small talk and lukewarm phyllo dough. Here’s how you can make it better, not worse.
You just bought your first house, and the first thing you said when you saw those French doors leading to that formal dining room was, “I’m going to have my family here for Christmas!”
So your Aunt Karen wants to change things up, and Christmas on your dad’s side is a brunch this year. The family group message thread has been blowing up, but you’re on Karen’s side. Let’s start a new tradition! Now, what should you bring? Do you go with a classic brunch dish or a classic holiday dish? Or maybe try to land somewhere in between?
So you’re new to the whole Christmas thing, we’re here to help. The first and probably most important step is to create a master checklist of all the things you need to accomplish before the holiday season ends.
