Last week we had the pleasure of getting the team together remotely and held our annual Christmas party online. If anyone had suggested this a year ago, I would have thought they were mad!
However current times called for a change and I was pleasantly surprised by what a success the evening turned out to be.
Our boss decided to give us all the afternoon off to get our Christmas jumpers and hats at the ready for the festivities. We were all also delighted to receive a Christmas hamper from the company, filled with loads of goodies earlier that day.
We started out the evening with a thoroughly engaging and entertaining hour playing ‘who dares wins’ hosted by an external events company. We entered Winter Wonderland visiting different virtual Christmas realms such as Candy Cane land and Ginger Bread Kingdom, undertaking various challenges, quizzes and charades as sub-teams.
After this, our various partners and children joined us all for a fireside chat, drinks, eats and games.
No hangovers to speak of this year and none of us were left on the dance floor until the early hours of the morning, but it proved to be a welcome boost to company morale and raised the spirits of us all ahead of the festive season.
