Having the family over for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's? Research reveals that it takes about three hours of labor to get the average home ready for a guest visit!!! Who's got three hours right now?? Results of a OnePoll survey also found that the way to impress guests is to spray a fresh scent around the house, light scented candles, and put out the best snacks. I think if I light my KFC candle, I can cover ALL the bases!!
