    I've lived in ethnic neighborhood (mixed ethnic) where people held "at homes, open houses" meaning people were welcome to drop by, hang around, have something to eat or a drink. Of course this was done on Christmas Eve and New Year's but also at other times like the second or third Saturday in June. When I was a kid my parents held At Homes every other Sunday morning. Bacon, sausages, eggs, bakery rolls, fresh brewed coffee, jams, butter and toast, etc. Neighbors helped.
