Three weeks of Christmas-themed competitions at Nordic Intent finally came to an end on 22nd December. But the fun wasn’t quite over for everyone. Along with all the prior events, everyone from the company was looking forward to the annual company Christmas party.
This year, our theme was Funky Santa, which gave all a chance to get dressed in their funkiest even though there weren’t any prizes for the best costume. For almost three days before the party, a few of us got together to come up with decor ideas and execute them to perfection.
A small group of us worked almost overnight to bring the party venue to life. Red balloons were stuck to the walls along with holly leaf cutouts to give them a Christmassy vibe. We covered the pillars to look like Santa and his elves got stuck upside down. Even the bar got a makeover with Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer imbibing some Christmas spirits. Little fairy lights were hung all around the hall and it truly felt very Christmassy. Outdoors, a photo booth background with Christmas elements was hung up for anyone wanting to take pictures. The entire venue looked amazing and it was all created by company employees who took the time and patience to make every piece of decor from scratch.
Funky Santa started on the dot of 7 pm with an awards ceremony. Certain employees from each department won awards like Employee of the Year, Key Contributor of the Year, Best Newcomer of the Year and Emerging Leader of the Year. Soon after, each department shared five-minute-long videos of all their Christmas shenanigans over the past three weeks. It was fun watching all the videos which showed a lot of team spirit within each department. And we can’t forget that one department came out ahead of all the others and won the final trophy for the Christmas competitions.
After that, everyone moved on to the entertainment part of the night with lots of dancing, drinking, and eating. The food was catered by one of the company employees and it was truly mouthwatering!
Christmas 2018 at Nordic Intent was absolutely fantastic and all at the company will have some great memories of the season forever. Now it’s time to bring on 2019 and all that’s in store for all of us at the company!
