I had a good time at party last night. The attendance was very low this year, only six ladies showed, I think it was because of the cold weather. But we partied anyway. Everyone brings a wrapped Christmas ornament, we sit in a circle. A story is read consisting of the words left and right heavily scattered throughout. The ornaments are then passed accordingly. At the end of the story you should end up with a package that is not your own. The lady who reads the story is the daughter-in-law of the hostess. She has a very heavy Cajun accent and her story is about Santa not being able to deliver toys on Christmas eve so he calls on Pierre Boudreaux to get the job done. It is fun and of course you end up with a new ornament for the tree. This year mine was a boxed set of four ornaments. They are gold and red with a holly leaf design on them and are teardrop shaped. Very pretty. And, being a true Baptist occasion, there is always good food to eat.

Sounds like a great party, Cher.
What fun! Glad you enjoyed yourself.
Sounded like lots of fun .I've never heard of a party like that.Beind a baptist myself I bet the food was great.
The left / right idea is fun. Is it possible that you could end up with your own ornament again?
Yes Frank, it is possible, but then she adds a part to the story. The object is not to end up with your own.
I've been to ornament parties like that but not with the left/right story. I like thatbetter. Ours was decided by the "prettiest wrapping". Wannabe
