Creative Holiday Party Ideas

The holidays are often a whirlwind of activity beginning on Thanksgiving Day and lasting through January 1st… the average person has multiple events to attend, and, by the time that last holiday canapé has been sampled and champagne glass clinked and drained, you are often too pooped to participate in just one more party.

If you’re the host or hostess of a holiday get together, don’t let your invitation get discarded or be RSVP’d as “sorry I can’t make it” because it portends to be the same-old, same-old holiday gathering.  This year show some ingenuity and create a party with pizzazz!

Tips for the Perfect Holiday Party

Once you see the store shelves laden with pumpkin goodies, cider and donuts, you just know that the holidays are not far off.  You may not have your holiday shopping ideas even formulated in your mind yet, let alone the presents bought, before your local radio stations start playing non-stop holiday music.

What is a Quinceañera?

Every ethnicity and some religions seems to have its own celebrations when a child turns a certain age.  For most “Americans” 16 and 21 are always celebrated with big parties because 16 is when you can start to drive, and 21, well, we all know what that means.  In Jewish law boys and girls also have bat mitzvahs and bar mitzvahs when they turn ages 12 and 13.  Spanish people also have a coming of age celebration as well, called a Quinceañera.  This happens when a girl turns 15 traditionally, but for Spanish people in the United States this means that a girl has turned 15 years old.  It used to be many years ago that both males and females celebrated a Quinceañera – it was a rites of passage.  This is a celebration that works differently for both boys and girls and these days in modern times it tends to be more for young woman than young men.
