Hors d'oeuvres are one of the best things about holiday parties. They're so often cheesy and accompanied by a spirited drink. You can eat them and eat them and eat them and technically, you have not eaten yet. You can spend an hour hovering around a cheese dip, trying to see if there is anything that doesn't improve by being dunked in the gooey stuff, and then it's not only appropriate but imperative to then sample the toothpick-speared meatballs.
