It's nice to work with kind people who give you a necklace of holiday lights to make things more festive around the children. I've been told to make sure I have a tacky sweater on next year so I'll fit in better. There were also an abundance of treats about today, and now my teeth ache.
I had already arranged to have time off for the winter solstice, and then extra time was added on to our winter break. Meaning I now have a glorious stretch of time to relax, hide away, and prepare for the year ahead. Which is very jolly.
