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?

She's said her company is a family/mom and pop type thing, Yours is a lot bigger than that.

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

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.

1. I bake for different events here and there but a general mass baking, no. 

2. We normally have white lights on the house outside and colored lights on the tree.

3.  Yes, both and more than one for each.  We both are attending, but not all the parties.

You can't accept gifts from vendors now?  DH's work does and I know what you mean, tons of food b/w now and Christmas + New Years!  He does things with his managers, dinners, party and such.  

Nope. Many years ago that was stopped. Our company does give us cookies every year though so that is bad enough bawahhhaa..then we have the different parties inside of the company and cookie swaps, etc. Glad I am getting kickboxing, ballet and kettle bell classes in while eating and drinking over the holidays. lol
