What We Love About the Holiday Season

If you’re like us, this time of year gives us all the holiday feels. It’s like everyone is in good spirits.

There are many reasons to love the “most wonderful time of the year.” Snowball fights. Eating. Celebrations with friends and loved ones. Finding the perfect gifts. Volunteering. More eating. Writing letters to Santa. Driving through neighborhoods to see the lights and decorations. Carolers. Did we mention eating?

Are you jamming to holiday music? Let’s see a show of hands. Who started in November? Who breaks out the Jingle Bells in the heat of the summer?

Are you the holiday sweater wearer? The tackier, the better? Yes, please!

With all the cheerfulness surrounding us, we decided to share some of the things we love about the holidays.

Eileen R., Ponderer of Good Fortunes

Director of Sales & Recruiting – Casey Accounting & Finance Resources

I love the holiday season because it is a time to gather with family and friends in sharing some cheer. It is always a good time to reflect on all the blessings you have been granted throughout the year and the anticipation of what is to come in the new year of 2022!

Nina S., Present Wrapper Extraordinaire

Administrative Assistant

I love the holiday season because growing up, my parents always worked so hard to make sure my brother and I had a great Christmas and wanted to see our faces GLOW on Christmas morning. And still, to this day, at the age of 27, I still get very excited, like a little kid, about Christmas. I enjoy the lights, the songs, and surprisingly – I love to wrap presents! The whole Holiday Season gives me so much Joy! My most favorite family traditions are getting a real Christmas tree every year and decorating it together and having Mom’s home-cooked Prime Rib Dinner on New Year’s Day!

Cheryl R., Expert Party Organizer

Director of Recruiting and Sales – Arlington Resources

I love the holiday season because for the last 20 years, I have hosted a girlfriend’s Christmas party, and it is one of the best nights of the year that I always look forward to. It started out as a cookie exchange and gift exchange, and now we skip the cookies but like to have a theme party. The party brings my old friends and new friends together and helps me celebrate my most favorite holiday and time of year. I love my real Christmas tree, Christmas music, Christmas cookies, Christmas decor…I LOVE it all!

Denise Y., The Chef

Director, Recruiting and Sales – Arlington Resources

I wanted to share one of my favorite party recipes: Hot Crab-Cheddar Spread

1 (8 ounce) container of crabmeat, drained and shredded
2 cups of mild or sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
½ cup of Mayo

¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350

Mix together all ingredients, bake for 25-35 minutes and serve with crackers or toast

Elizabeth L., Christmas Tree Lover

I love the holiday season because I love having our Christmas tree up and lights on. We get to take cute pictures with our dog, Amy!

Erin G., Witness to the Best in Humanity

Senior Recruiting Consultant, Arlington Resources

I love the holiday season because, in general, people seem to be more kind, giving, and caring during November and December. I also love holiday lights and decorations.

Julie J., Believer in Magic

Sourcing Specialist, Arlington Resources

I love the holiday season because my young kids are very into the magic of Christmas, and it’s a very special time!
