For the first time in my life I'm getting invited to conflicting holiday parties. Well, if I were being honest, I'd say that my wife is getting invited to conflicting holiday parties and I'm expected to go along, but either way it's too many parties in too short a time. Come on people, let's work together to spread these parties out over the year and not have them all in the span of one week. No more Christmas parties. I'd prefer if we put Arbor Day and Flag Day parties on the calendar now. Those days are still open for everyone.
