I'd Spent New Year's Eve With ...
The Musgroves, Persuasion:
Mr. and Mrs. Musgrove are the party givers in the neighborhood, always inviting friends, relations, and acquaintances over for gatherings. Yes, their daughter-in-law, Mary Musgrove nee Elliot, can be a pain, but her peevish voice is usually drowned underneath the din of laughter from the other members of the family. The Musgroves are kind and generous hosts and know how to treat their guests to a good time,including music. As far as this welcoming couple is concerned, the more the merrier. Besides, if you accept their invitation, you might meet Captain Wentworth and Admiral Croft and learn more about their voyages abroad.
Sir John Middleton and Mrs. Jennings, Sense and Sensibility
Sir John Middleton and his mama-in-law, Mrs. Jennings, might be a tad vulgar, but one has to give it to them: everyone and anyone is welcome at their houses all the time. They will spare no expenses, and will roll up their carpet for a dance at a moment's notice. Besides, one might have a chance to hear Marianne play at the piano and sing, or conduct a sensible discusssion with Elinor Dashwood or lawn bowl with Colonel Brandon. At the very worst, the group will eat a fine supper prior to an evening of cards. I also imagine there are scores of women who wouldn't mind meeting Willoughby despite his bad boy image.
