I like this idea of a celebration. My upbringing and adult experience in creating gatherings is to be limited by the number of people who can lift a fork within a given space. The number of chairs would not be a consideration. But I do have a good friend who always selects guests by how many can sit down for a formal dinner. Very different approaches and desired outcomes. We both usually have a good time at each others parties, though. --eileen Eileen McCourt Oak Creek Commons Cohousing in Paso Robles, CA http://oakcreekcommons.org/ mailto:emccourt [at] mindspring.com -----Original Message----- From: cohousing-l-admin [at] cohousing.org [mailto:cohousing-l-admin [at] cohousing.org] On Behalf Of Sharon Villines Sent: Tuesday, November 13, 2001 10:21 AM To: cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org Subject: Re: [C-L]_Re: rituals With Thanksgiving, What would my family do? Well, the tables were for the food and people sat everywhere -- windowsills, bunkbeds, floors, front porch, back stairs. The children under 4 might sit at a table or in highchairs so they wouldn't spill. But the idea of tables and chairs for everyone was not even a consideration. We included inlaws and outlaws so it got big. No one was ever turned away. The turkey gets cooked in the kitchen but everything else is pot luck. Obviously what I want is a recreation of an extended family -- some you love and some you don't but they are still family and welcome. What measures do other people do? How do you know what feels right?
