The holidays have arrived! December is always full of decorating, shopping and partying. The month always seems to be a bit of a whirlwind, but it’s something to look forward to each year. Unlike the other holidays, we start preparing for Christmas as early as four or five weeks ahead of time. The minute that Thanksgiving turkey is digested, you know you will find people working it off by hanging their lights on their houses or decorating their trees. I saw Christmas decorations for sale at the stores before Halloween this year! Retailers perhaps took it a little too far?
We at PMG decided to hold off until after the Thanksgiving holiday, but we now have a real, 7 foot Christmas tree in our office (it smells amazing). We of course decorated with teal and white, our PMG colors. Every employee also plans to bring a toy to put under the tree which will be donated to Toys for Tots and we are stuffing gift bags and writing notes to the children at Cook Children’s Hospital today. I am proud to work for a company that likes to give back to the community and realizes our fortune and the importance of giving. It’s things like this that make the holidays more special for everyone. I know we will give a few less fortunate children something to smile about this Christmas.
