So last night was Festivus, our third annual.
When we hit the road to mexico the first time (two years ago) we wanted to get the family all together to celebrate Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries and all the other important dates we missed while we were gone.
It was such a great event that last year we did it again.
Last night was numger 3 and I’m thinking it just might have been the best ever.
For those who aren’t up to date with the Festivus concept, here’s how it works:
A week or two before the event we draw names. Everybody buys one gift, maximum value $30.00, for who ever’s name they drew. We all bring a favorite dish and maybe a suitable beverage and we commence to party.
That picture above is what my eldest son Darren gave me.
Now, if you study the picture you would think my favorite topic is beer . You would also think that I really enjoy tasting different beers. If that’s what you thought you would be dead right on both counts. I do like beer and I certainly enjoy tasting many different beers. All in all, a perfect gift wouldn’t you say.
Conincidentally, I drew James’s name . My gift to him was also an assortment of Ontrario beers.
We had so much fun at Festivus we think we should Have Festivus II when we meet up with Tracy, Mike and the kids in Edmonton.
