    I was thinking $10-$15. No decision has been made. If anyone else is interested, we need to know how many or not.

    Wow, lots of dishes already spoken for! I will bring small sandwich rolls and sliced ham/turkey if that's ok. And with regard to gift exchange, how much are we spending?
    I am also fairly new to meetup and appreciate the invitation.

    This will be my first meet-up. I have been in FL for a short time. Retired from Massachusetts, but still in the classroom as a sub. Looking forward to meeting some new folks. I will bring a large salad of some sort and the dressing.

    No it is not a cookie exchange. It is a gift swap with a twist. It is a lot of fun. Everyone gets a number. The first person picks a gift and has to keep it. The next number picks a gift and gets to take the first persons gift if that person does not like the one they picked. It continues with each person picking a gift having the option to steal someones gift. Then at the end, the first person has the option of taking anyone. Its fun. Just a thought.

      Sounds like a lot of fun. We have done this but we each brought a special Christmas Ornament to exchange

      If it is decided that we will be doing this, an amount of money has to be established to spend on the gift.
