Tonight is the second of our two holiday celebrations here at Sinclair & Co. As we polish our bling and dig out our party dresses, we thought we’d share with you how we celebrate the holidays.

The first party is for some of the most important people in our professional lives – our partners. These are the folks behind the scenes who make us look so darned good. People like our designers, web developers, photographers, videographers, representatives from printing companies and other close friends and colleagues. The talents of these wonderful professionals make it possible for us to do good work and have happy clients.

We hold this celebration after work at the Raleigh Times over delicious bar snacks and beer and wine. The other great thing about our partners is that they’re all good folks with whom we’re happy to lift a glass (or two… or three… or four) with.

Tonight is our smaller company celebration. With spouses in tow, we’ll enjoy a delicious dinner at a local restaurant, then retire to Karen Sinclair’s house for dessert and a dirty Santa gift exchange. And laughing. Lots of laughing. Some years the gift exchange is dirtier than others – we’ll get back to you Friday about how this year’s goes.

Some of us stay here for the holidays. Others travel to hometowns. Our office will be closed Dec. 24th – 26th. We’ll re-open on the 27th to close out 2012.
