Last week we had our company dinner and each of the 4 offices had to say or do something as to why their Christmas tree should win the contest. Mainly bragging rights. Our office has won the rights 2 years in a row so I guess “The Boss Lady” wanted to change it up.
This was all last minute and I was nominated to put something together. This year our tree was not done up to the teeth. It was very elegant and simple and more to what Christmas spirit was like.
So I first put together a heartfelt poem and then we decided we needed a little more with pictures etc. so the the final product was this power point presentation.
So all the offices went up. Of course we had to be the first to go up (Shrewsbury) then Middletown then Rumson and last and not least was Holmdel. Won’t go into too much detail bottom line:
We were out done by 2 votes and the Middletown office won!
They did deserve it they had a wonderful little skit based on 12 days of Christmas down to 5 days of Christmas.
Well Done Middletown.
The reason I am writing this is that this is my wish to all I have met, to all who trusted me, became clients then friends, and to all whom I have not met and may in the future.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
the full poem:
Behold In Wonder our little Christmas tree how verdant are your leaves
with bows, lights and berries from yester year,
no balls no bull no tears
Our Christmas Tree wish for you, our friends
Is not a simple one
Christmas is forever, not only for one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to pack away
like bells and bows and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than ornaments, lights and richness;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
That brightens all the year
May this Christmas bring you
hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun
We wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer
Be sure to count your blessings, one by one, by one
And when they’re totaled by the lot
May you find that all you’ve got
Is more than what you sought
May your journeys be short, your burdens be light
And your spirits never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows with pots of gold
We wish this all and so much more.
“Come closer and listen. If you want to be the best,
I’ll share this simple secret to your future success.
If you want to succeed, and become real estate giants,
Remember to always do what is best for your clients.
WOW your buyers and your sellers. Don’t let this ring/sound hollow
For when your client’s first, the money will follow.”
May all your dreams come true
Merry Christmas And a Happy New Year, too.
And that is why our tree is the best
