The smile in the eyes of a child, the warm embrace of a stranger, the sense that somehow, no matter what’s happening in the world around us, there is love, there is hope and there is joy. That’s the Spirit of Christmas. The Spirit of Christmas cannot be manufactured, packaged, or sold. It can only be felt in the heart. And perhaps more importantly, it can be shared. During the holiday season, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the hustle of hosting and bustle of buying, but perhaps it’s even more important to slow down and enjoy the best gifts a person can have: our families, our friends and the people we work with every day. To be sure our office is as festive as it is focused, we’re celebrating HenkinSchultz 16th Annual Treat Day Countdown to Holiday Extravaganza – A Festival of Food, Friends, Wonderment, Peppermint and Enlightenment. Together we count down to Christmas with all the things that make the season so special – but mostly food. Every couple of days a team of three or four people provides an extraordinary holiday treat to share, and it all culminates with a staff-only Christmas party full of surprises. From a hot breakfast to an afternoon cocoa break, and cookies to festive appetizers, the countdown is a festive culinary extravaganza. And while the treats are amazing, these little breaks offer an opportunity to slow down and share the holiday spirit of joy and the company of our coworkers. As you celebrate your holiday in and out of the office, we wish you wonderment, peppermint, enlightenment and the love of friends and family. May the spirit of the holiday season surround you, warm your heart and shine for all the world to share. From all of us at HenkinSchultz to all of you, Happy Holidays.
