At a dinner party a couple weeks ago, I was conversing with a friend and new acquaintance, when my friend piped up,
“WHAT is the deal with December 6th?”
She asked, because she had not one, but THREE Christmas parties to attend.
I’m actually wondering about that myself, because (tonight) I have two parties to go to. (Mind you, only one is Christmas-related, but a party is a party.) And I’ve had to turn down two gracious invitations for other events …
Which leads me to the question: just what IS the deal with December 6th? Why does it seem like everyone and their dog is holding a party of some sort on THIS particular date?
I mean, if you think about it, you really have two other weekends you could feasibly have shindigs, before other commitments and obligations take over in preparation for the holiday period.
I even did an impromptu search online, but I couldn’t find anything to support my theory.
Maybe it’s all just one big, crazy coincidence.
But if anyone knows for a fact whether December 6th declaratively marks the beginning of the Christmas party season, lemme know. I’m curious.
