Anyone can add to the list although I do most of it. But everyone helps with completing the chores. We have been doing this long enough now that even my sons-in-laws woke up Thanksgiving morning, made their own breakfasts, cleaned up and went straight to the list. They pick the chore they can do, complete it and then cross it off the list. And then they choose the next thing that interests them. One son-in-law vacuumed the entire house, the other cleaned the upstairs bathroom and always chops anything that needs chopping. My daughters have been working off the list since they were little. It makes the holiday more of a family event when all help in the hosting of the party.
The success of the list is that everyone independently chooses what they feel comfortable with. And, it is so very true that many hands make light work. With everyone chipping in, dinner for twenty-one wasn't that big a deal.
We had a great time!
