Oh, and the definition of "Holiday Season"
Most people call New Year's the end of the Holiday Season. Not for me. My company holiday party is January 6, and believe me, that is Festival of Fabulous Food at the ritziest hotel in Milwaukee, with Hors 'd ouvers to die for, and a five course meal, and free drinkie poos. Then comes the party that we'll be throwing, and I get all Martha Stewart for that. I'll declare the holiday season over after that. Still aiming for a net loss.
