We had a holiday themed desk decorating contest at work for the first time ever this year. But November/Decemeber are the busiest months for my department because we are preparing for the Mummers Parade in Philadelphia – which is one of the oldest traditions in the city on NYD. It’s an eight hour parade that we televise and takes a lot of work to put on. So I assumed I wasn’t going to have time to participate.
Until I went to get a bottle of water and passed a HUGE cardboard box in the trash. And the light bulb turned on and the rest is history. On of our reporters even did a story on the contest.
And NBD but I won first place and got to take home a $25 Visa gift card.
