The spirit of Christmas is in the air. Red, white, and green Christmas lights, the song little drummer boy playing at the grocery store, and hot cocoa simmering on the stove. The traditions of decorating the Christmas tree, spending time with family, and random acts of kindness are what make this holiday extra special.
- Catherine L., Director of Marketing, said, “Each year, my family and extended family would get together and walk door to door to sing holiday carols to our neighbors.”
- Manny R., CSR Manager, said, “My family has a Christmas tradition as many Latinos do around the world, where on Christmas Eve we have a party or celebration of the day. We have family over, eat yummy food like Tamales and other traditional Mexican Foods, and stay up until midnight. At midnight the kids open all of their presents after staying up late. Christmas day, we have leftovers and go out as a family on a hike or go play in a snowy area.”
- InfoWest C.T.O., Cassidy L. shared his favorite tradition of going to Germany to visit the Christmas markets.
- Fred W., from our Commercial Accounts team, shared, “One of our favorite family Christmas traditions is meeting together Christmas morning and going through our stockings first to see what Santa left for us. Afterward, we would gather for a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict and then make our way back to the tree, taking turns in opening our Christmas presents. It’s always a GREAT day!!
- Tiffany P., from our Richfield office, said, “My family’s Christmas tradition usually starts on Christmas Eve. We celebrate a German Christmas with a big dinner, eggnog, lots of sweet treats, and gifts, and spend time finding a hidden pickle in the Christmas tree.”
