We host Christmas eve at my house for my parents and sister's family (the only ones in town).

My office is having a late lunch or early dinner party at a local watering hole next week.

My Book Club has a holiday evening/late dinner next week.

I've been invited to another party the weekend before Christmas but will likely not attend that. And I usually get a Cookie Swap invitation each year from an old coworker but haven't received that yet.

No parties, and we won't be attending any family shindigs this year due to schedule conflicts. But that's ok, because I am horrible at small talk and I am kinda the black sheep in my family. My mother will probably come over to our house on Christmas Eve as she has for the past four years and spend the night.

We've been invited to 4 parties, but we can only make 2; possibly 3 of them due to scheduling conflicts.

I went to one party last night and have one more this Sunday. I think that's it, unless you count my DS's high school Christmas Concert.

Work Christmas party I won't be attending: it's in a co-worker's house, it's over an hour drive from me, and spouses aren't invited. Nope, the one day this week I have with my DH, I won't go to a party without him.
Other than that, we'll be going to DD's house for Christmas and maybe seeing DH's family - but probably not, for a huge slew of reasons that include them being butts.
