We thought it would be cool to share with you what the holiday season means to members of the SILVERSPORT® Team!
What do the holiday’s mean to you?
“To me the holidays signify a time for family and friends. I also like to take time to practice gratitude during the maddening holiday shopping. This practice helps especially when I’m stressed out, driving like a maniac, in the pouring rain trying to make it to the squirrel hill art store before it closes. All of the madness is worth it in the end though. It’s nice to be thoughtful and thought of.”
- Sarah Laird, Marketing Executive
“To me the holiday season is all about good times, good food, and, most importantly, good people. It is a time to connect with friends and family and reflect on all of the amazing, and sometimes not-so-amazing, things that have happened during the course of the year. I have always found the holidays to contain some of the most memorable moments of my year, and I look forward spending this Christmas and New Years with the people that mean the most to me, my amazing friends and family!”
-Ryan Donnelly, Marketing Manager
“As 2018 adjourns, it is important to reflect upon the meaning of the holiday season.
When reminded of this time of year, does one recall the smell of freshly baked cookies filling the house (and your tummy)? Is it gathering around a fire, sipping warm cocoa and watching the classics on television? Does it elicit memories of attending a religious service? Will it remind you of holiday tunes played the entire month of December on the radio? Do you think about adorning your home with decorations passed down throughout the generations? To some, it’s the long-awaited celebration they have been looking forward to all year. To others, it may evoke immense stress.
Regardless of how one celebrates, it typically involves tradition.
As time passes, these annual customs may change. I certainly have noticed as I am growing up, plans are adjusted to attend every event possible; running from one house to the next to satisfy everyone. However, as I reflect on the season as a whole, it is important to remember its original, true value.
It’s imperative to enjoy each moment. We, as a society, eagerly anticipate the winter festivities all year. Yet, when the holiday arrives, we become flustered in a desperate attempt to create a picture perfect, cookie cutter, Hallmark movie holiday.
Let’s meditate, live in the present, and enjoy our memories with family and friends.
Let us full-heartedly love those we cherish and plan to emanate the holiday spirit all year round, not simply on the last few weeks of December.
Let us grow as a whole and make 2019 the best year yet.”
-Rachel Gigler, Creative Manager
We hope you’ve had a great holiday season, and we look forward to continuing to grow and better ourselves together in 2019!
