Makeover Holiday Traditions

 Florida Holidays, 2003: Tired of the same old traditional Christmas decorations?  Is your animated Santa saying "Humbug!" instead of "Ho, Ho, Ho"?   Perhaps you have a second tree you want to decorate with a little more unusual holiday flair. Maybe you live in a multi-cultural family or are planning a company holiday party and are trying to balance several religious beliefs. Whatever your reason for making a change, Phyllis Cambria and Patty Sachs, celebration experts, owners of and authors of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Throwing a Great Party (Alpha Books/Macmillan) and soon-to-be-released, The Pocket Idiot's Guide to Choosing a Caterer (Penguin Books) offer some innovative ways to give your holiday décor and traditions a tantalizing twist.
