Purple Bells
Holiday Ornament

Hopefully, your gifts are already on their way or have arrived at their destination, Secret Sylvia's Holiday Spectacular happens Friday, December 11th starting at 2 pm. You do not have to have participated in the Secret Sylvia Gift Exchange in order to attend this event. If you did receive a gift though, be sure to have it on-hand and ready to open while on Zoom with everyone. 

With those logistics out of the way, here is a sneaky peek into everyone's answers for gift ideas. Not that these really matter anymore, but it is a fun way to learn something new about some of your coworkers. (It does warm my cold heart just how many people listed "black" as a favorite color.)
