Actually...I used to work for this Biotech company down in Huntsville. The guy who ran it was so awesome. He really knew how to treat his employees...let me tell you.

He threw a Christmas party every year, with tons and tons of food and wine, plus a full bar. It was awesome! It was even formal, so you had to come dressed in your finest. It always felt very old school but awesome.

Sounds like my kind of boss except the dressing up part. I don't like to spill clam dip on my good suit.

Yeah he was really really cool. I kicked myself for like two years for leaving that company to go to graduate school, then they got bought out and shut down...and I was glad that I left.

silver bells is a new face around here!
The hospital feeds us a holiday meal if you are lucky enough to be working the night that they have it. It falls somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And if you are part of the staff that is working on the holiday, they have something free to eat in the cafeteria on the Eve on the holiday. My nurse manager usually gives us charge nurses something little at Christmas like a calendar or a jar cookie. One year we got a Christmas pen. I still use it during Christmas!

I love fruit baskets.

When I worked at Target around the holidays they would decorate the break room and if it was any kind of holiday they'd buy us a bunch of food and give us free lunch/snacks. It was a really small gesture, but I totally appreciated it (having worked at fast food restaurants mostly before that). This was like 10 years ago though, so I don't know what they do now.

where I work at they throw a party with a whole bunch of expensive giveaways and they also have a secret santa thing. But you can't just buy the person anything. It has to be a bottle of liquer or pop if they don't drink.
