Every year instead of giving each other gifts my Chicago friends all get together for a nice dinner before the holidays. The first year there were 12 of us, but since then we've grown to over 25. We're having the sixth annual at our friend's wedding in December. It's a great way to celebrate the holidays and our friendship.
