    Poor thing, she's probably lonely. I'd let her come, but my friends are also generally inclusive people.

    I would say something along the lines of, "It's kind of a special tradition we have, but want to grab coffee the next day?" I always think it's a little strange when people ask for an invitation.

    Do you want her there yourself ?

    On these occasions when no ticket , rsvp is needed and it is a new year type bash , I myself would just say to the rest of the gang , do you mind if she comes ..as you say she has met a couple of them and although it itsn't your job to keep everyone sane at Christmas and New Year , she may have no one to hang out with .

    20 people is a fairly large group, I can't see anyone being upset about her coming, especially if some of them have already met and spoken to her.

    What's with the exclusivity? Your friends or you aren't open to meeting or including new people? That doesn't seem fair.

    Honestly, I don't get it. My friends group isn't like that, with us, the more the merrier and no one would get "offended" or put off with someone coming along with me.

    Where's the Christmas spirit?

    People are often incredibly lonely at this time of year and have no one.

    This is what I would tell her.

    If you tell her what Eliza said...you will look like a total jerk and it will come off as trying to not include her.

    But, it's your call.
