With an international team of writers and editors, the WTG office is a real mixed bag when it comes to the Holiday season. We’ve had our office party together (complete with ugly Christmas sweaters, emoji beanies and deeply boppers), and now it’s time to go our own ways to celebrate.
Our editors share what they’re wearing and doing this Christmas, and what this time of year means to them.
From all of us at WTG, wherever you are and however you're enjoying your weekend, merry Christmas!
I'll be spending this Christmas with my friend's family in the Burgundy region of France, stuffing myself with French food and pretending I actually like foie gras. I love Christmas because you get to surprise people with presents and eat delicious food together. As a Christian, it's also a moment for me to reflect on the symbolic meaning of the season and the hope that Jesus represents for me.
Christmas is about generosity and being with friends and family. I can't fly home to California this year, so I will be watching Frasier with my cat all day.
I'm going to be in Athens to spend some time with my family and have fun with my friends. My favorite thing about Christmas is the smell of the traditional Greek sweets my mother makes.
Christmas is my favorite day of the year. I get to hang out with my family and eat, drink and be merry. I sing Christmas songs throughout the year, so I'm really in my prime on December 25th.
For me, Christmas is about tradition. We eat seven different kinds of fish, everyone wears some form of the color red and Santa comes at midnight wearing the same costume he did when my mom was a kid. There's about 60 of us, by the way.
