We will be having dropin meetings as usual on Tuesdays at 7:45pm at my place . Christmas, December 25, will be an exception, and see below for New Years, January 1.
It looks like the only possible weekend day in December for a party would be December 8, which nobody, including me, is enthusiastic about. In my case, it isn't that I don't want to invite all my friends and cook and clean, but that's just too early to put up a Christmas tree. I spent some time trying to figure out how to have an Advent wreath be decorative but not in the way of people being able to put down plates and glasses, and I couldn't.
So we decided that this year the party will be instead of our regular meeting on Tuesday, January 1. I know some people won't be back from their Christmas travels in time for that, so we will attempt to also be festive for them before they leave and after they come back.
I'll be sending out the normal invitation for inviting all your friends with, but it will start at 4 in the afternoon and include our usual food, drink, and music of the season that you might not have a chance to sing anywhere else. If you know you're coming and what you want to bring to share, I'd be happy to know about it in advance, but don't be shy about just dropping in.
