Aunt Sandy has 8 Christmas Trees

Sandra Lee says she will not be baking endlessly throughout the holiday season, but she is still quite busy preparing. “I have spent the last three weeks decorating our house. We have eight trees, we have a gingerbread kitchen,” Lee told VF Daily at a MAC Cosmetics dinner for Zac Posen on Wednesday. “I’m really into Christmas,” she added. “I wasn’t raised with Christmas, so I celebrate it very much now. But, yes, we do the house for holidays, and I have my family coming this Christmas, so it’s a special Christmas for me.”

Eight trees? “We have eight trees in our house in Westchester,” she confirmed. That would be the house she shares with New York governor Andrew Cuomo. “It’s amazing. It is so beautiful. But I’ve been working on it for three weeks,” Lee said. Eight trees? “Oh my God,” was about all we could muster. “I decorate all of them, and I buy all of the decorations,” she said. “Even Andrew says, 'Oh my God,'” she said, laughing.

OP: But were any of them a cocktail tree?
