We have a special Christmas tradition here at Smile. Each year, Conor, our Senior Administrator transforms into Santa, donning a red suit and white beard to deliver advent calendars to the team.
It’s something that we all, minus Conor, look forward to each year and it certainly helps us all to get into the spirit of things. We mean who doesn’t love a visit from Santa especially when he is bearing gifts?
With it already the 2nd of December our team got to open two doors in their advent calendars, although some people *cough* Claire might have gotten a little carried away!
Once the advent calendars have been delivered and chocolate eaten to the team, we get to put the Christmas tree up. This year was even more special as we had two trees for the first time ever, one in Birmingham and one in Cannock. To our marketing manager’s delight, the trees were colour co-ordinated, with the Birmingham office’s tree decorated in orange and silver.
Over the next few weeks, we have two Christmas Jumper Days to look forward to as well as Secret Santa and of course our Christmas party!
