Don't Get Red Punch In Your Carpet, Upholstery, or Clothing

Steer clear of red punch!

Serve warm cider or light toned drinks. Then if anyone spills it is so much easier to clean from fabric and carpeting. And, it tastes just as good if not better anyways.

To make cider warm, pour into a sauce pan, toss in cinnamon sticks, let simmer on the stove. Keep a ladle nearby for guests to scoop out punch bowl style.

Survive Family Get Togethers With A Time Limit

You'll never get away from family, they are a blessing (usually). But for the holidays when it feels more like a curse- put your stay on a time limit. Decide to be pleasant while there. Once your time limit lapses, leave! Staying two or three hours at a family gathering, then leaving, makes those hours so much more bearable.

Turkey Cooking Tip

Don't be a peeping tom!

Each time you open the oven it causes the temperature to fluctuate, which assists in drying out the bird. For best results only open the oven a half hour before it's done to remove the foil and let it brown.
