Host a Holiday Party Challenge


Grow in Rediscovering the Art of Neighboring
through the Vineyard Host a Holiday Party Challenge!

WE’RE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO CONSIDER HOSTING A SIMPLE HOLIDAY PARTY FOR IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORS!  HERE ARE SOME PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS:

  • Consider hosting the party some time on the  1st weekend of December
  • Consider a simple cider and dessert gathering on Friday or Saturday evening… or Sunday afternoon
  • Use the term “holiday” rather than Christmas… that welcomes those from Jewish Hanukkah traditions…and secular.
  • Consider exploring and signing up for the website www.nextdoor.com. 
  • Try not to go overboard, it can make people feel the event is too much work. Keep it simple!
  • Many ideas are available online.  We encourage you to keep the vision in mind:  to get to know your neighbors.  Don’t be so busy hosting that you miss the people!  Practice hospitality.  Listen.
  • Purpose: to get to know your neighbors and learn to love them…
