Wow…can you believe we’re into December already? There’s something festive in the air as we get ready for Christmas and the New Year.
It’s PARTY SEASON!
I love this Phyllis Diller (remember her?) quote. “What I don’t like about office parties is looking for a job the next day.” Good thing I don’t have a job!
Office parties are starting as early as November now as restaurants get booked up fast. I started celebrating
a month ago last night when six on my building council got together for a rowdy celebratory non-silent night for dinner and live jazz. And this time everyone behaved! And there’s only more to follow including back-to-back get togethers with friends and neighbours, dance parties and another fundraising gala (more on that later). Oh, and Stevie Nicks. Okay, it’s not a dinner but she’s amazing…still.
It’s a time to be especially nice to people you otherwise ignore the rest of the year. But all kidding aside, it can be a lonely time too for people without family, or the homeless, etc. And it’s a time to put aside rifts and nonsense and look at the good in people (because nobody is perfect). It’s time to spread the CHEER!
I hope you have a Happy Holiday Season! XO
