A few of our festive holiday traditions
Here at PlotProjects, our team hails from all over the world. We recently shared some of our favorite festive experiences with one another, from superstitious traditions to downright hilarious pranks.
Check out a few of our traditions below, but don’t forget to tell us about yours over our Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Remember to follow us, like & share the competition post, and tag two of your friends to enter!!
Funny Sinterklass poems
“In Holland on December 5th, the adults give each other small gifts (like Secret Santa) which contain a poem filled with funny/embarrassing information about the person receiving it. The poem is written from the perspective of Sinterklass or Zwarte Piet as they are meant to know all your hidden secrets. It teases the receiver a bit about their habits that would otherwise not be talked about. It always makes everyone laugh!” *By Thomas, Managing Director
Hiding the brooms
“When I was a young child I heard that Norweigans would hide all the brooms in their houses on Christmas Eve. Apparently that was prime time for witches and evil spirits to steal them and go joy-riding on them. I was fascinated by this tradition and I always looked out for witches riding around in the sky on Christmas Eve! Even though I was in the UK not Norway, I hid the brooms in our house – I didn’t want to take any chances!” *By Georgina, Marketing Consultant
The laptop gift – gone wrong!
“My family loves to play jokes during Christmas. When I was around 11 years old, laptops had just started to become really popular. Christmas was getting closer and I noticed 2 laptop-shaped boxes under the tree which were both pretty heavy. I ran to my older brother in excitement and told him “I think mom and dad got us both laptops!” Christmas comes around and we’re opening presents. I’m super excited thinking about the laptop. I grab the gift and start to unwrap it- then burst into tears. Instead of a laptop, my parents had gotten us both 500 sheets of computer paper as a joke!” *By Bahar, Customer Success and Marketing Manager
