Q: We’ve been invited to several holiday parties this year. Is it okay to “double-book”?
A: This is one of those times when it’s fine to double-book and go from one holiday party to another. The casual, drop-in nature of most holiday parties makes this okay. Just be sure you do each event justice — a lightning quick drop by simply doesn’t cut it. And don’t double book when you’ve been invited to a dinner party or a small gathering with a set time to arrive and a limited number of guests.
