If you were the host of a Christmas day or eve party, did you figure out a seating plan for all the guests or did you let them sit where ever they wanted?

With NFL Sunday football playing in the background here, I am reminded of the drama and politics that ensued on Christmas morning as the seating plan for the Stark’s Christmas dinner was being worked out. The changes and strategy involved in drawing up the seating plan was almost equivalent to the amount of thought put towards constructing a football play.

The photo above was the final plan for Xmas 2009.
