Santa Arrives - Twentynine Palms RV Resort Annual Christmas Party!

Sunday afternoon was our Annual Christmas Party at Twentynine Palms RV Resort and it was a festive occasion.

We start the afternoon with some Hot Buttered Rum, then a potluck Chili Feed with all the fixin's - Chili, Cornbread, Shredded Cheese and onions! Great Meal!

After we eat it is time for the gift exchange which is always a fun time. We have our own special system of distributing gifts...if you bring a gift you draw a card from a deck of cards and tear it in half...then half is drawn from a basket and you get to go to the gift table and select a gift - you can open that gift or exchange for any of the previous gifts that have been opened then the person who you exchanged with opens the gift. The really good gifts get traded back and forth several times, the first person who selects a gift at the very end gets to select any of the gifts which were drawn during the evening. Needless to say it is a fun gift exchange and gets pretty lively when the trading starts!

It was a beautiful evening!
