As Christmas approaches; corporations, small businesses, and organizations are celebrating the season with annual Christmas and Holiday office parties. Two such parties I know of this weekend include my employer’s Christmas party and my wife’s employer’s Christmas party. In the past, I’ve always attended the annual Medi-stat Christmas party. My wife has been a long-time employee and for a few years it was also my employer. Medi-Stat’s parties are always fun, but this year their annual Christmas party conflicts with my new employer’s party.
So, how did we choose which one to attend?
Ryla Teleservices‘ annual Christmas party is in Atlanta at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel. That means an overnight stay in Atlanta at the hotel, with dinner and dancing. Travel out of town, you say? Okay, we’re there!
This morning, we catch a free charter bus at the Saraland, Alabama division of Ryla and ride to Atlanta for the night. Since our anniversary is just shy of two weeks away, the wife and I plan to not only enjoy a party with some fellow employees and the upper management of the “home office”; but also make it a mini-anniversary celebration.
My wife bought a new dress, my suit is pressed, and the bags are packed. If I can snap a few non-proprietary, non-incriminating photos of fellow employees and friends at the party, I’ll let you know how it turned out next week.
Until then, I’ll still have Christmas…and Georgia on my mind.
