“I love decorating. Now I’m not going to tell you that I love taking it down, but I love decorating,” says Debbie Toy. She and her husband, Jim, spend the days after Thanksgiving transforming their home — and it’s not just for themselves. Between Thanksgiving and New Year, Debbie will entertain an array of family, friends and groups that she’s involved with. “People are placed here to serve others,” she says. “The good thing is we all have different gifts. Mine is hospitality.”

Viewer beware: It's not gory, but condors are carnivores, and they eat meat.
