So, you’re planning to party. It’s a great way to end the year… and a great way to make sure you’ll never throw another party again. Seriously, between the high expectations that holiday parties bring with them and the tendency these days to think you have to one-up everybody, a holiday party can lead to a breakdown.

But if you begin with a plan and reasonable expectations, you just might have the time of your life. In the end it's your right, and I hope you have the time of your life. Rock on with your party checklist.
