12/5/13 Update: Oh, my, things are coming together. The lucky guests will participate in some traditional superstitious party games and receive some great prizes. There will be prizes for best outfit, best food item, and best tradition shared. I will provide soda, water, and juice. I will provide cups, plates, napkins, silverware, etc. I am super excited!!
Original Post: Since it is Friday the Thirteenth in the month of December, let's get together and share our Traditions and Superstitions.
Bring anything that you think reflects your traditions--personal, family, culture, whatever.
We will have a gift exchange--you are strongly encouraged to bring a gift with a superstitious or traditional theme.
Dress to reflect your favorite tradition or superstition. Yes, this could be the tradition of not dressing up.
Michael has been gracious enough to provide us with the use of his place of business, a funeral home, for this event. In deference to the location, the dinner and gift exchange will be held at this location WITHOUT ALCOHOL.
There will be a potluck dinner. Please bring a dish that is related to your traditions. Again, use that in any capacity you would like.
There will be prizes...
After the dinner and gift exchange, will we meet at a nearby bar for imbibing and continuing the celebration. Location details will be posted soon.
Feel free to join us at either or both portions of the evening, but please respect the venue and do not consume alcohol (or arrive with excessive amounts of alcohol pre-consumed) at the funeral home.
I look forward to learning more about each of your traditions and superstitions.
