"We always do stockings first on Christmas morning and put on the Charlie Brown Christmas CD."
-Katie N., Senior Videographer/Editor/Photographer
"The holidays are so magical. One of my family's newest traditions is the "elf on the shelf"! My kids love waking up every morning to find out what the elves have been up to and all the mischief and magic they create! We look forward to them coming back every year."
-Geneva S., Social Media Coordinator
"On Christmas morning, we make orange blossoms, our multiple generational secret family cocktail, before opening presents."
-Caitlin B., Digital Marketing Manager
"Every year, my mom hides a pickle ornament on the tree. Then, before we open presents on Christmas morning, all the siblings jump up and search for the pickle ornaments. If you find it first, you get the pickle prize! My mom has the best taste, so the pickle prize is usually highly coveted."
-Mayce B., Social Media Manager
Going on 4 years now, me and 3 of my best friends get together and have an Annual gingerbread house competition. We set a 45 min timer & then get to town (and, of course, trash-talk each other the entire time because we are all extremely competitive!). When time is up, we have a blind judge pick their favorite gingerbread house—the winner gets bragging rights. My friends also hold a poll on their IG, and it's fun to see who wins on social media vs. the judge's pick.
-Emilee M., Senior Digital Designer
