Year after year my company has a Christmas party for a lot of it’s employees. I think if you ever work at my company, Christmas is your favorite time of the year. How could it not be the best time? It is fun everyday during the end of the year. Mostly every day, clients are coming in and out of the office delivering treats and goodies to each of us as holiday gifts. We are always listening to Christmas music and sharing reports about each other’s own family traditions. The best of all is that the manager get a holiday bonus. Our boss is quite thoughtful and always gives us more than what we expect as a bonus each season. It really helps around the holiday time. I usually put it towards gifts for my closest friends and family. This year was not exactly the same for me. We all got our bonus and it was better than we ever have had, although I was unable to put it towards my Christmas gifts. This year it went toward repairing this old HVAC system I have in my house. I didn’t wish to put the money toward this, but when my heating and cooling unit abruptly broke down a week ahead of Christmas, I had no other choice. I called the HVAC company in my town and scheduled a quick HVAC appointment. I was having all my acquaintances over for Christmas Eve, thus had no other choice but to put the money towards fixing the HVAC unit. I needed heat within this home if I planned on hosting guests here. While applying my holiday bonus toward HVAC system restoration wasn’t ideal, it was much needed.
