Our office is having our annual holiday office party next week. Although, we haven’t really ‘decked the halls’ in our office, we do enjoy planning a party with good food, since our team appreciates good food. The holiday party is a time for our team to get together in a more casual setting where we have a gift exchange planned. Finding the right gift takes time, so we’ve had our party on the calendar over a month ago. Our gift exchange is not quite a white elephant, although we use the ‘rules’ for white elephant. Everyone gets a number and start with number 1. When your number is up, you can pick a wrapped gift or steal a gift that’s already been opened, and the person who has their gift stolen, gets to open a new gift. This continues until we get to the last number and the gift you are left with is yours.
Our December holiday party also has a brief time of looking back at the year to see what we have achieved and also to look at our failures and see what changes to make for a better year in 2018. We give accolades to those who have had a good sales year and encourage all to have goals for the coming year.
Whatever your office or work place does for this time of year, we hope you have time to relax and to reflect on the past year and look forward to 2018. Happy Holidays!
