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?

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.

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.

White on the tree.  No other lights.

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

That's nice. We have experienced that when we worked for smaller companies. It is harder with a bigger company and you have over 1,000 people coming to a party. You can't invite so's as there is no room.

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!
