Bring your steak and guacamole sandwiches and raise a glass of cheeky Chilean red to the hottest musketeer of them all!

Let's play pass the parcel. When the music stops, Team A gets to take off a layer.

WTF is pass the parcel?

Cinnamoncookie Tue 05-May-15 20:59:40

WW it's more fun than musical bumps, and less fun than musical chairs. <Helpful>

LetUsPrey Tue 05-May-15 21:00:17

It's a children's party game Wicked. Generally, you have a smallish prize wrapped up in many layers of paper. The parcel is passed round by the children whilst music plays. When the music stops, the child holding the parcel carefully removes one layer of wrapping <side eyes Cinn>. There's either a forfeit - sing a nursery rhyme or something - or a small packet of sweets for that child. Music starts again and the parcel is passed around. This carries on until the final layer and the child who unwraps that wins the main prize.

No child ever holds on to the parcel for longer than they should <side eyes Helen>, and there are never any disagreements between the children as to who was holding the parcel when the music stops. And no parents ever fix each round - bar the final prize - so that every child gets a turn grin

<<Whatever he's doing tonight, I hope it involves something along these lines...

And when I googled 'Santiago Cabrera Aramis Shooting Melon' why did Google Images include one of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana?

Why is this?

LetUsPrey Tue 05-May-15 21:57:49

Dirty and drunk? Yep grin

LetUsPrey Tue 05-May-15 21:59:10
