You know when you have a bag that you carry your stuff in, and eventually you fill it up? Then you might get a bigger bag, and fill that up? I had a friend in college that carried such a big bag it seemed to me she was carrying around a weight, not belongings.

Then Sara had an idea for a holiday Un-Party. You would send out invitations and schedule it for a weeknight during the busiest time of the holiday season. On the night of the party everyone that accepted was to stay home. If anyone asked you to do anything on that night you could politely decline, as you were invited to another party. Un-Party.
