Just kind of curious if your work/job (outside of farming) has a Work Holiday Party?? Our work has one every year right before Christmas. Not to bad of a gig. Cost's $35 for a couple to get in. With that you get a dinner buffet (this year was a salad, dinner rolls, prime rib, ham, chicken, mashed taters, stuffing, and mixed veggies- dessert was peach cobbler), 4 drink tickets (for alcohol; 2 per ticket), and 2 door prize tickets. Door prizes given away are usually really good and plentiful (this year there wasn't many given out); usually 5 or 6 gift packages of alcohol, the pre-made baskets (from Walmart and Costco) of lotions, the Christmas packs of candies, soups, things like that. This year they had a huge remote control truck that my DH won. (So now my DH wants to buy 2 more ones that are similar to that one and put bigger rubber tires on them- so when the grandboys come up they can play with them with out getting into fights with each other). The last past 2 years I won a door prize, nadda this year. The first time I won a bottle of tequila and margarita glasses, last year it was a bottle of Gray Goose with crackers and cheese. They also sell tickets for big items like Ipads, TVs, Kindles, Xbox with Connect, Visa Gift cards, and a park hopper pass for California Dinsey Land. Those tickets are 3 for $5. We bought $100 of tickets and didn't win any thing. Oh well there is always next year!!! Any one else have parties like this??
