Every year close to Christmas, I have some friends over to swap Christmas cookies. They wear pjs, I feed them dinner, we play games, we swap gifts and then we swap cookies! You can do this with a big or a small group and it is always fun.

The highlights of this party for me are the girlfriends wearing Christmas PJs and playing games. What I hear from the peanut gallery is a whole different thing. I'm pretty sure these girls would quit coming if I stopped making rum punch. Rum punch, you say? Yes, indeedy.
As you prepare for the onslaught of family, remember the power of a little alcohol. Make a bit of rum punch for the grown-ups and watch those grins appear.
A little hint for all you housewives out there - the best part of a cookie swap is that your family will willingly send you out the door for a girls' night. They know the good stuff is coming back home! Husbands and children make sure their women-folk don't miss this party. Want to hear more about doing a cookie exchange? Head over to That's Baloney!

Tell me about it!
I love comments.
