Seven or Eleven

Everyone brings a small, wrapped gift and receives one in exchange. We sit in a circle and each person describes their gift. Three pairs of dice go around the room for seven minutes. Throwing a 7 or 11 gives the thrower the rights to exchange their gift for someone else's. It's quite raucous and fun, and sometimes friendly arguments arise.

My parents have hosted this Christmas party for many, many years. Mom cooks up a storm and everyone brings dessert. Chong aunts, uncles, cousins and children of the cousins are invited, and I look forward to seeing everyone I love! I swear this crowd gets bigger and bigger each year.
