Congratulations to Arlene Sykora of Sauk City, Wisconsin for coming up with the closest guess for the number of Christmas trees that we decorate at Fairbanks House. Arlene guessed 17. The correct number is……… 21. We have a tree in every guest room (12), trees on the front porch (2), trees on guest room porches (4), trees in the foyer (2) and a ten-footer in the living room (1) for a grand total of 21. Whew! We start decorating at the beginning of November and finish up by Thankgiving so that our Thanksgiving crowd checks into a fully decorated house. We leave everything up through early January so that folks who are too busy over the holidays can come right after the New Year for a little R&R; and enjoyment of the holiday look. We hope that you can join us. Thanks to everyone for your guesses. See you soon, Arlene!
