Dear Abby Jeanne Phillips Published 5:32 PM EST Jan 28, 2019 Dear Abby: We need some advice. Recently we hosted our annual holiday party and invited all of our neighbors and friends. Our invitation stated that the party would run between 5 and 11:30 so our guests could also attend other parties that might be going on at the same time.
