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 think logistics are hard as well if you have employees in multiple states and/or countries...makes it difficult to have a Holiday Party that includes everyone!

Oh, we have parties in the different states for all associates. There are just way too many associates to be able to invite guests also.

1.  No, not really. Though I did make cookies with some friends this year.

2.  I prefer colored lights on the tree, but our has white (it's a prelit tree).

3.  I have a Christmas Party this weekend, and the whole family is invited; we are going.  Dh's company rents out a hall for an entire day and has an open house type event.  They serve a buffet of appetizers, provide soft drinks, and one alcohlic beverage for each adult, and hire a bar tender.  There are different "events" scheduled throughout the day, from games and drawings for door prizes, to dancing and karaoke in the late evening. All staff and any of their guests are welcome.  There have been kids there, though dh and I have never taken ours.  We won't be able to make it this year, but have gone several times in the years past.

Yep, or corporate parties get scaled down and become department parties, 1000s of people change to groups of 200-400 + spouses at the local country club instead which is nice.

Yeah we have asked about doing something like that for years but they want the entire company (in each location) to have one party. We all have separate dept. parties too but they are much lower scaled then the catering hall one. 

I wouldn't mind going if some people didn't sit around all night and talk about work. lol. It is nice to get out with your co-workers and have a nice meal, some drinks and dance. Sometimes we would go to one of our co-workers home beforehand, get dressed, have appetizers and drinks and THEN go to the party. THOSE were the best years lol.

lol. No, we would go straight from work with our dress clothes and dress there. I have had coworkers at my house to do so too as I live the closest to the catering hall. Many people stay at work to dress too and now they actually have buses at one of the buildings to bring people to the hall so they don't have to bother finding parking or doing valet.
