Cut out of red cardboard half as many hearts and mittens as you expect

in your company. Out of blue cardboard cut hearts and mittens for the

rest of the company. Number them so every heart has its corresponding

mitten. Attach strings or ribbons to each and place them in a basket.

Each guest takes the end of a string and pulls out his heart or

mitten, as the case may be. Each one then hunts for his partner.

When all are paired off, a circle is formed and someone strikes up a

lively march. Whenever the music stops, all the ladies stand still,

and the gentlemen move up one. This goes on until everyone has had a

different partner, and finally, when the original one comes, there is

a grand march before the circle breaks up.
