This time of the year, many people throw 'Open Houses' where they open their homes for several hours for people to come and visit and share a moment of two with them during the holiday season without the fuss of throwing a huge party or worrying about a set time schedule. Normally food and drinks are served to the guests as they show up and it gives both the hosts and the guests some quality time without being rushed around attending a large group of people. Whether the 'Open House' is thrown by a close friend, neighbor, family member or even co worker it's never a good idea to show up empty handed. Though it's not required to bring a gift, it is considered good etiquette.
