Hosts and Guests

At every social occasion, we assume roles of "host" or "hostess" and "guest." Whether that is in your own home, at the home of a dear friend, or at a formal gathering in a more public space, certain expectations and responsibilities go along with the successful adoption of these roles. With just a basic attention to the give and take of the situation, any occasion can be made more enjoyable.
