Holiday in February

Holiday in February

STRA’s holiday party was scheduled and rescheduled 3 times this year, due to snow, restaurant renovations, and one or another of our team battling the sniffles. Somehow, the much anticipated ‘STRA stocking reveal’ found its moment at the tail end of February. The air was heavy with the weight of suspense: just what was in those stockings, had it gone rancid or lost its punch line by then?

The stockings were handed out and ravaged:  1, 2, 3 go! An exciting10 minutes of torn colored paper and flying ribbons, the stocking reveal at STRA is always a good time. The gifts range from yummy caramel bites or local art, to the perfect inside joke; this year’s biggest gag gift goes to the decks of playing cards, leftover’s from an event held last year.

We all agreed that the holiday in February was the perfect festive lift at just the right time. Perhaps the holiday should arrive in February every year….that’s just the type of unconventionality about this team that I have come to love.
