Festivus X is here! Ten years ago we started having this yearly party. A Christmas party and Festivus for the rest of us.
This year will be legendary. The usual suspects will be in house bringing great punch, baked goods and some special goodies to eat.
Nobody has to bring anything, however if the mood hits you we welcome any drinks and foods for the pot-luck.
The Strength will be held as will the airing of grievances.
Rumor has it there will be a Centurion challenge (100 shots of beer in 100 minutes) Will anyone be able to join the Centurions?
The White Elephant this year will be Yankee Swap rules. Feel free to bring something for the pile, but never fear - we will provide Zonks as well.
The first participant unwraps a gift from the pile and then shows it to everyone. The next player can either "steal" an already opened gift or be adventurous and go for a wrapped gift from the pile. If the participant chooses to steal an unwrapped gift, the person whose gift was stolen now repeats their turn and either steals another person's gift (they cannot immediately steal back the gift that was just stolen) or unwraps a new gift. This cycle of stealing can sometimes continue for a long time until a new gift is chosen at which point the turn is passed to the next participant.
