We’re in the home stretch for Christmas and today was our office party. Beside the food and merriment we had a Ugly Christmas Sweater contest. I’m not one to buy the festive fashion piece, but I do have the Christmas colors in my closet.
I wore a kelly green sweater over a ribbed turtleneck. I also wore my new skinny jeans. I got them this past weekend at Fashion Bug, along with another pair. I had a coupon for $10 of a purchase of $25 or more and when I walked into the store it was 50 percent off everything in the store. So I was able to get two pair of jeans for $30, more than $60 off. I also wore my rain boots, which I found this past fall at a yard sale for $3 and they were new.
I love it when we celebrate Christmas at work. We go from floor to floor trying each department’s food, we exchange gifts and we also vote on the ugliest sweater. Many of us got into it this year too. It’s probably the only time some of us see one other.
There is someone representing each department – advertising, classifieds, composing, business, circulation and of course editorial (me.)
Anyway those of us at The Telegraph wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
