We are having a tribal gathering at a friend's home. He lives on a hill over-looking our Green Lake fireworks show. It is tribal because it is a group of (mostly) non-related friends who have connections going back to the early '70s and a group called The Society for Creative Anachronism (or something like that). There can be as many as 50 and as few as 12 people showing up.
We use to have 6 or 7 gatherings per year (I used to have the 'orphans' Thanksgiving' at my house) - we are down to the 4th and Xmas (the host is Jewish).
