Fierce Christmas

sandra lee christmas tree 2012OK, people, let's just call this now: New York's First Lady-friend has won over-the-top Christmas. The rest of us are playing for second place. Deploy your garland and tinsel accordingly. (Yes, that appears to be a silver tiger lounging beneath the tree at the Lee/Cuomo house. Fierce. Update: Here's more about the $4,000something silver-plated tiger.) [@SandraLee] [NY Observer]

Her thought process completely baffles me. At least on TV, she has somewhat of an editing process. I feel like this is pure, unadulterated Sandra Lee and I'm a little scared.

Love the tiger but that tree is the stuff of nightmares.

Well, they do say you can't buy taste.
