The 5 Rules of the Crappy Dinner Party

May 16th, 2018

In southern Ontario and in northern Saskatchewan people have been hosting what is called “crappy dinner parties.” What are they you ask? Here’s how it is done in 5 steps.

  1. No housework is to be done prior to a guest’s arrival.
  2. The menu must be simple and not involve a special grocery shopping.
  3. You must wear whatever you happen to have on.
  4. No hostess gifts allowed.
  5. You must act like you’re surprised when your friend and her family just happen to show up at your door (optional).
