Parties are all about hanging out with friends and family, but it's possible that they can be too comfortable. If you're hosting a party this year, MPR News suggests you shortchange your guests on chairs so they're forced to move around.

MPR News has two main suggestions for how to set up the chairs in your home to increase interaction from your guests:
- DON'T line up chairs along the walls. Nobody will talk to each other. Better to cluster seating so people can face each other.
- DON'T have enough seats for everyone. It will keep everyone mixing.
With that, everyone should have a great time that isn't spent sitting next to the same person the whole time. Head over to MPR News for a bunch more tips for entertaining.
