1. Do you bake for the holidays? 

2. White or Multi Colored lights (on tree and or other decorations)?

3. Does your place of business (or so's) have a Christmas party? Do you/will you attend?

I agree, neither dh or my company does "company wide" parties, way too big and spread out.  There are mutli-levels of parties that are held and usually spouses are invited to many of those. but not always.

That is nice. I wish they would do something like that for us but it has always been associates only and they are really strict on that. I think mostly because of the amount of limited space.

Oh ok. When I worked for a smaller company, my dh was always invited to our holiday dinner/get together.

Yea, you'd think smaller the company the cozier/more personal parties would be.  Maybe things have changed, its interesting what ivillage archives reveal.

Yeah we would have it at a restaurant and then sometimes go back to the bosses house.

1. Do you bake for the holidays? -- not particularly. I do usually make homemade salami to take to parties and give as gifts.

2. White or Multi Colored lights (on tree and or other decorations)? - white.

3. Does your place of business (or so's) have a Christmas party? Do you/will you attend? -- My office is having dinner/drinks and a gift exchange tonight.  The University (The President and First Cowgirl) is hosting a holiday reception tomorrow afternoon (I probably won't go this year).  The Dean/Division is hosting a holiday reception next week - I will go.  Our floor (the admin units) have a potluck luncheon on the last working day of the year.   Dh's college hosts a reception of some sort - don't know if he'll go or not
