Last year my friend, Ann, started a new annual tradition for our friends to get together for a beautiful dinner in celebration of 12th Night.( our first year) . It is a great time to exchange gifts, after all of the holiday hub-bub is over. Ann outdid herself with a delicious dinner, and champagne cocktails, and an English trifle for dessert! It is a perfect time to use all of the best china, silver and glassware that we save for just this kind of occasion.
There is nothing better than good friends, great food and of course, the cocktails AND presents! WooHoo! Do you and your friends have any traditional gatherings for the holidays? If not, I encourage you to start one! It is a great way to keep in touch.
