Holiday Ramblings

As we wind down production, as our printers and clients alike become unreachable and as the streets fill with countless disgruntled souls checking the final items off their shopping list, we are knee deep in the holiday season. Christmas and New Years lie just ahead, the soltice just behind, and Hanukah's final day is today.

My coworker hums along to a carol on the radio while sporting a bedazzled Santa hat and finishing an ad. A tantalizing pile of Secret-Santa office gifts lies on the meeting room table, nudging the proposals and proofs to a corner. Another co-worker takes a brief break from coding to proudly display their fancy Christmas socks.

I think to myself, how incredibly cool it is that -- at least at this time of year -- it's ok to be a complete dork?

Happy Holidays
