Although the staff at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Nashville is pretty diverse and we come from a variety of different cultures and traditions, we all celebrate Christmas during the holiday season. Since we won’t be in the office over the weekend of the 24th and 25th, we wanted to share about what we’ll be doing over our holiday break!
While most of our team members relax at home for the holidays, our Quality Control Manager makes it a point to go out of town each year for Christmas with his wife. Keith spends Christmas Eve with his whole family to drink boiled custard and exchange gifts, then takes a mini-vacation to enjoy nature. Some of his recent trips have taken him as close to home as Gatlinburg and as far away as St. Petersburg, Florida.
Our Sales Representative Marc usually spends the Christmas season with his Hispanic family. In his family, Christmas Eve is just as important as Christmas Day, so they have huge feasts with the whole family on both nights. They eat lechon, a dish similar to American pulled pork, and all kinds of side dishes similar to traditional Thanksgiving food. Marc also loves spending time with his friends and family because they play tons of music throughout their parties.
Another one of our Sales Representatives, Zach, gets to enjoy multicultural festivities as well! One of his uncles was born in Laos, and he brings his whole family, plus some Laotian cuisine, to their annual get-together. Zach and his family spend Christmas Eve with another aunt and uncle, then spend Christmas Day with his cousins, and have one more day of celebration with his grandparents. In addition to enjoying piles of food and plenty of jokes, Zach and his siblings also make a tradition of watching the Die Hard series every year.
But before we each celebrate the season with our own traditions, we bring our whole office together for our annual Christmas Party! Our office has been decked out in holiday cards and ornaments for weeks now, but this year we’re also competing in a Cardboard Tree Craft-Off to see who can turn an old moving box into the best Christmas tree! We’ll also be breaking out our ugly Christmas sweaters and some fun gag gifts for this year’s Dirty Santa gift exchange. Plus, an office party wouldn’t be complete with some sugary Christmas cookies.
From all of us at TWO MEN Nashville, we wish you a happy holiday season with your loved ones! If you would like some help rearranging your furniture or putting away the holiday decorations after your parties are over, please give us a call or text at 615-248-6288 for a free moving quote!
