    If they offered and want to do it, then I don’t see why not! It could be fun! If it isn’t, oh well. What have you lost?

    I think that sounds really fun. It’s an excuse for you to meet them (albeit, online) and you get to hang out with your friends. It may not be traditional, but I think it is a good thing!

    I think it’s a cute way to have everyone involved without having to add the cost of travel. And like, Ms. Hedgehog said, if it doesn’t work, at least you tried!

    Having lived abroad and joined family parties via skype, I think it could be awesome! And the fact that they initiated it = totally okay, IMO.

    There will be some logistical headaches, of course. I recommend getting projection screens of some sort (even if you can plug your computer into a big screen tv using an s video cable or something) so that it’s easier to see everyone on the screen. I also recommend getting an external microphone that you can put in the middle of the room, rather than just the one on the computer, and maybe an external camera so you can find a great angle to see the room (maybe from slightly above eye level, in a corner somewhere?) without endangering your laptop!

    It will take some work, but I think it’ll be great! If there’s someone on your end who loves party planning and a challenge, maybe ask them to help the City C folks with some of the planning – like printing out shower games, decorating, etc. that they can’t do from afar. 🙂

    I did it for a baby shower for my cousin who lives in England.  We had snacks, drinks and everyone had a really nice time, I thought.  I would suggest a few test runs prior to the actual shower, to prevent technical difficulties.  Have fun!
