Etiquette Advice for the Holiday Guest
A guide to good guest behavior at seasonal festivities.
Good Holiday MannersFace it: The thought of doing the holiday rounds―this party, that open house, the weekend at the in-laws’―can make curling up on your couch with a drink and a DVD seem like your own private Bora Bora.

There’s also the stressful fact that, unlike a muumuu, party protocol is not one-size-fits-all.

But this year, armed with the following tips from those in the know, you’ll be able to actually relax and enjoy the festivities. Who needs secluded Polynesian beaches, anyway?
