The day started off in a festive spirit with everyone coming in to work in their best Christmas jumpers. One of our staff even went as far as getting kitted out in a reindeer onesie! Once the general laughs and excitement levels had died down, everyone proceeded to eat a year’s supply of mince pies and chocolates at our buffet-themed lunch hour.
Whilst over-indulging in standard Christmas goodies everyone settled in to open their Secret Santa presents. The gifts ranged from a miniature tequila gift set and male ‘pampering kits’ to the standard extra-large Thorntons chocolate gift set and Boots bubble bath sets. Once everyone had received their gifts we closed off the day’s activities with our Gingerbread competition. With not so mini Gingerbread houses and Gingerbread trains and sleighs created, competition was stiff. With a gorgeous three story gingerbread mansion, the obvious winners were Leanne Ackermann and Marsha Harrison.
A very festive and cheerful day was had by all with may already talking about the next Simply Christmas. Is it too early to start the planning?
