“I like being the first one in our neighborhood to have our tree down and out on the curb for recycling after Christmas. I also love cleaning dishes, for what seems like 24 hours non-stop, between Christmas Eve and Christmas night.” – Joe, General Manager & Partner

“Each Christmas Eve my family gets dressed up and throws a cocktail/dinner party, which ends with an always hilarious yankee swap gift exchange. We keep it casual the next day for Christmas, but the fancy factor the night before makes things feel pretty special.” – Cassie, Social Media Manager

“Don’t forget a gift for your furry friend! I’ve found that paper is often at the top of their gift wish list.” – Cindy, Chief Marketing and Impact Officer

“Start with cocktails at Shirley’s Tippy Canoe, followed by dinner at Tad’s Chicken and Dumplings. The decor and vibe are cozy Christmas kitsch at its best, and the meal is always memorable.” – Emily, Director of Social Media

“Turn your dessert into a family competition! Every Christmas my family makes a traditional English trifle–a caloric mound of cake, cream, and berries that often weighs more than a small child. The trick is to hide a whole almond when layering it so it becomes a game. The family member who finds the almond is the lucky winner (and also spared from dish duty).” – Emma, PR Account Director

“We traditionally set up our beloved Charlie Brown Christmas tree and watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” on Christmas Eve. Our tip to making this a participatory and long-lasting tradition for any family is to memorize your favorite lines from the movie and speak them with the actors. Oh, and there’s always a bottle of wine involved, just sayin’.“ – Vicky, Director of First Impressions

“When Ben and I got married we decided to start a tradition of making a photo ornament featuring our family each year. We had visions of sugar plums and our elderly selves with a lifetime of memories on our tree dancing through our heads. It’s a tradition that our son loves. Every December he inspects the newly decorated tree counting each and every year. It’s pretty cute.” – Kate, Director of Client Services

“Watch Christmas Vacation while baking cookies. I’ve seen it so many times and it always makes me laugh.” – Carrie, Senior Account Manager
