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?

My parents used to make it.  I only made it once.

Yes.

White on the tree.  No other lights.

We used to, but don't have them anymore.

When I worked for a smaller company that was centrally located, we had a annual company wide holiday party as well, spouses were always invited too.

Secret family recipe!   lol

It's ground beef mixed with a bunch of spices, a preservative (tender quick salt) and liquid smoke.  Rolled into logs and baked really low for about 9 hours.  It doesn't have a casing, as the low cooking makes it form a thick skin.   My family has been making this since longer than I've been alive. I've been making it since shortly after I married and moved away.

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

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.
