Such a great way to start everyone's day. Many, many smiles at the work place that morning. The turkey they gave us was great too! 21 lbs. and very yummy. Next week is the company's swanky Christmas party but I'm not attending that. I'm so happy to be working at a place that is doing so well. Very thankful for that.
We used to get Christmas bonuses at Thanksgiving, then they moved them to March. It gives them time to review the year and determine the amount. But it generally results in larger bonuses, so I'm willing to wait!
Our office party is next week, too. We are renting the upstairs dining area of a seafood restaurant at the coast. We used the same place last year and it was a lot fo fun.
Congrats on your unexpected bonus!
