"A Viking potluck? Is that what history buffs do?" Not usually, as this is the first Viking potluck I've ever been invited to after almost thirty years of doing this job. Perhaps it is a Jubilee year.  But I go to a Feuerzangenbowle on St Nicholas Day almost every year, put on by a member of the English department.

That sounds like something my DS would say, there are outside holiday events we go to but after a few minutes in the cold air he wants to go back inside, that usually subsides with distractions or hot chocholate, Lol.

Christmas Tree Festival at high school, putting up our own tree and decorations, food shopping and of course, football

The city had their tree lighting ceremony the Saturday after Thanksgiving, always love this and the parade.  I can't wait to see your annual Christmas tree pic on fb!

There was sun at your game? lol   We were too cold to eat.   We went back to the hotel and thawed out.

He's not really new...he was fine with the tree last year, but he is way more insane this year than last.LOL  Considering all the things he does to our regular stuff, I'm not sure he's trustworthy around a tree anymore.  He also has that Maine Coon tendency to freak out over anything new that comes into the house (Joel got a new wheelchair brake a few months ago...we're talking about a 3-inch piece of plastic...and MacIntosh growled at it and needed mama time for days) I'm pretty sure a Christmas tree would give him a nervous breakdown.  Or if not him, me.  ;)

Lauren, if you have a new cat, you just have to put up a cat proof tree. Basically, you hang all the ornaments out of the cat's reach, so the bottom half of your tree is undecorated. If kitty is a climber, don't hang the breakable ornaments this year. The tree will look kinda hideous, but at least you can have one.
