Blog about the possibility of organizing a family reunion for the holidays. Discuss how everybody is busy cooking, baking, shopping, and wrapping, that it may be a good idea to pool those resources. Pick a meeting place such as a cabin in the woods and have everybody bring a main dish, appetizer, and a dessert. Get a list of members and do a grab bag for everyone. That way everyone comes away with a small gift and everyone is not getting overwhelmed with busyness and spending. Discuss how this might be the most fun in the most cooperative and inexpensive way to celebrate a holiday.
