Graduation Parties

Tis the Season - For Graduation Parties.

A niece
A cousin's son
A friend's grandson

That's the tally so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were more on the way. Going to one could be a good thing or bad, depending on how you look at it. I consider it a mixed blessing.

It's wonderful to be with friends and relatives, having a good time and eating great food. It's not so wonderful to eat too much, which I tend to do when the food is terrific. Also, we're a bit short of money this year, but we still want to give the graduates nice gifts.

What about you? Are you going to any graduation parties or maybe holding one?


  1. Nope.

    Last person to graduate was my brother-in-law and that was last year. Next in line is my cousin, who's 11.

    All my friends that have kids, have toddlers so I've got a while to figure out good gifts. :D

  2. Yes, 'Tis the season!
    But this year I don't have one. Weird.

  3. Nope, nothing this year thank goodness, lol.

    Wifey and I are in those in between years. The kids are all grown & out in the world, and the grandkids aren't old enough to be graduating yet. About another 8 years we'll be heading back to that scene. :)

  5. No graduation party. Did receive one grad announcement. Will send a card.
    That's it for us.

    Party hardy!

    Maybe my family is weird, but we never celebrate graduations with a party. A nice family dinner, maybe, but that's it. I guess it's because my folks viewed getting an education to be our job, and finishing school well is to be expected.

    In the case of college, especially, a party would've been weird. My folks paid for my education, but I'd be the one getting the party? No thanks.

    You're not weird Christina - same experience for me. I don't get the party scene - the big gifts and all. An education is the greatest gift and we live in a world where so few really get a great one. Kids graduating into the world these days need practical gifts - a good book on financial responsibility? Maybe they can clean up our [politician's] messes...!!

    Have fun at those parties and eat the food - you can always burn it off if you opt to walk to these events ;-0 Or stay late doing dishes... so many possibilities...
